How do we do it?

  • Laughing gas is delivered through a mask over the nose
  • Your child will inhale a blend of laughing gas and oxygen
  • It takes effect almost immediately, making your child instantly comfortable
  • Your child will feel happy and calm for the entire procedure
  • As soon as the mask is removed, the effects wear off
