Many people are AFRAID to go to dentist. The very idea of a visit makes their hearts beat faster, they start sweating and the only thought remaining in the head is how to avoid that visit.

And if we consider that in order to ENJOY A NICE SMILE, the removal, implantation and other dental operations become necessary. BUT THERE IS A WAY OUT.

SEDATION may be applied to the patients who feel strong fear or anxiety, to the patients, for whom long and complex procedures are scheduled, to the patients who feel strong nausea, are choking, have especially sensitive teeth or who simply do not want to know what the oral surgeon is doing during the complex procedures.

SEDATION (ANAESTHESIA) means light inhibition and suppression caused by medicaments in order to make the patient feel calm and comfortable.

The sedation applied in the clinics of dentistry and implantology allows the patient drowsing without falling asleep.

The patient may communicate with the doctor, feels calm and relaxed.

When the patient is drowsing, it is not difficult to wake him up and he does not remember everything. This helps to reduce fear of future procedures.

The sedation is performed by experienced anaesthesiologists – reanimation specialists. The level of sedation (from light to deep) is selected according to the patient’s condition and duration of the planned procedure.

Usually the INTRAVENOUS SEDATION OF AVERAGE LEVEL is applied for dental and surgical procedures.

Intravenous sedation is more effective than peroral sedation. The drugs are injected to the catheter and they cause immediate sedation. Its level may be controlled and deepened, if necessary.

The anaesthesiologist – reanimation specialist watches the heart’s activity, blood pressure and respiration in the course of sedation.

WHAT SHOULD THE PERSON KNOW BEFORE INTRAVENOUS SEDATION?

  • The patient cannot eat anything 6 h before the procedure and the patient cannot drink anything 4 hours before the procedure.
  • If you are using drugs or have certain allergies, the doctor performing sedation has to be notified thereof.
  • It is strictly forbidden to drive or work with devices for 24 hours after the procedure. The patient is discharged home only when permitted by the anaesthesiologist and accompanied by another person.

APPLICATION OF SEDATION

Sedation performed by professional anaesthesiologist in the licensed clinic is a safe procedure. If you want to be sedated, you will be consulted by dentist or oral surgeon.

Upon assessment of your individual case, the doctor will confirm whether sedation may be applied and you will be informed about possible complications.

Sedation cannot be performed to pregnant women, persons sensitive (allergic) to benzodiazepines, drunk persons, and persons ill with certain diseases of central nervous system.
