Most potentially painful interventions in dentistry can be successfully solved with the use of local anesthesia. With people who have a great fear of dental interventions, there is a possibility of analgesic sedation.
In our center, interventions under analgesia are performed by a team consisting of a specialist dentist, anesthesiologist and assistants. Before each intervention, the patients first have a conversation with the anesthesiologist and dentist, during which they are instructed about the procedure itself and receive answers to all questions that interest them.
During the entire intervention, the anesthesiologist monitors breathing, heart function (vital functions) and repeats the use of medication. The dentist may add a local anesthetic if needed. Analgesia leads to a certain degree of amnesia, so that the patient will not remember the intervention itself.
After the intervention, the motor vehicle must not be operated by the patient because of the medications that are applied during analgesia, so patients must be accompanied by an adult, who will accompany them home after the intervention.
