WHAT IS HAPPY AIR?

Fear of pain is the #1 reason people avoid coming to the dentist.

RELATIVE ANALGESIA helps patients overcome this fear. (Relaxation and a feeling of well-being that results from breathing a mixture of oxygen, air, and a mild anesthetic gas -nitrous oxide- through a nose mask)

WHAT CAN “HAPPY AIR” DO FOR YOUR CHILD?

  • It eliminates fear, nervousness, and tension associated with dental procedures.
  • It allows a patient to breathe MORE oxygen than he or she can from air while enjoying a remarkable depth of relaxation.
  • It drastically minimizes feelings of discomfort.
  • It usually produces feelings of warmth and security as well as a pleasant, “floaty” feeling.
  • It permits needed injections of local anesthetic without discomfort.
  • It allows our patient to leave the office rested and alert with no side effects.

PLEASE REMEMBER:
Relative analgesia in NO way resembles general anesthesia because the patient is always alert, can follow instructions, and can control many sensations.
