Many patients have a fear of dentists and of the sound of the drill and feel discomfort during the treatment. For them we made it possible to carry out certain dental treatments in general anesthesia.If you would like to take advantage of this possibility please read our brief review.
General anesthesia is carried out in the form of ”ambulant anesthesia”. In case of healthy patients who are under the age of 50 need to go through examinations in laboratory to which they get a referral letter from the dentist. Patients over the age of 50 are examined by our anesthesiologist one session before the general anesthesia. Laboratory examinations are also necessary, which are the following: full blood examination (full blood count, blood-sugar, liver and kidney function), ECG and pulmonary screening that is not older than 6 months.
Please arrive at the clinic one hour before the anesthesia in order to have enough time for pre-medication . Our anaesthesiologist can examine you once more and this is a good time to ask questions and talk about any worries you may have. It is recommended to bring a second set of clothes with you. Please try to avoid wearing tight clothes, rather an elastic, comfortable running suit is advisable.
You must not eat and drink six hours before anesthesia.
The anesthesia and the dental treatment cannot be longer than 1,5 – 2 hours. If more time is needed for the treatment it is suggested that it is done in more sessions. During one session of anesthesia it is possible to carry out several treatments unperceived.
At the beginning of anesthesia the vein is ensured with a plastic tubing. The narcotic and pain killer is given through this instrument. After you falling asleep a breathing tube is placed into your windpipe. This is necessary because the gulp reflexes do not work after sleeping. Please do not eat and drink six hours before anesthesia!
Oxigen is conducted into your lung through a breathing tube. The tube is removed before you wake up. After anesthesia you can relax in our clinic for 3 hours in a comfortable bed and if no problem arises you can leave the dentistry with your accompanist. You must not drive that day!
If you have any questions feel free to ask your dentist!
