Pulling teeth under general anesthesia – why is general anesthesia already used in such a case?
Pulling teeth under general anesthesia can be a sensible alternative to local anesthesia for the patient. A decisive advantage of this type of treatment is that patients do not notice what is happening around them. Particularly when pulling teeth, the sounds can be very unpleasant, for example when the tooth is pulled out of the jaw. Pulling teeth under general anesthesia means that pain, noises or smells are no longer perceived.
Dental restoration general anaesthesia – when is general anaesthesia used?
In addition to tooth extraction, a complete tooth restoration, the so-called total restoration, can also be carried out under general anesthesia. Especially for patients with a pronounced dental phobia, a dental restoration under general anesthesia can be a good way to restore a healthy mouth with replaced teeth. Particularly in the case of extensive restoration requirements, such as tooth extraction, preparation, and additional implant placement, general anaesthesia is an elegant solution that allows the patient to gently work through many stressful work steps in a single work step. The therapeutic treatment is prepared before the anaesthesia, after the operation the patient wakes up and wears his beautiful new therapeutic treatment. After a healing period of approx. 4 months, the patient receives his final dental prosthesis.
How does general anaesthesia work at the dentist?
The operation under general anaesthesia is performed by us, your dentist in Berlin, together with an experienced team of anaesthetists. With general anaesthesia, the patient is artificially put into a deep sleep. In addition, the sensation of pain is suppressed by medication. Since people can no longer breathe themselves during this type of artificial deep sleep, they must be artificially ventilated.
How does a twilight sleep called sedation work?
In addition to local anaesthesia, the anaesthetist will administer a relaxing and anxiolytic agent through the vein. The patient becomes sleepy, as the agent partially eliminates the sensation of pain despite existing consciousness. In contrast to general anaesthesia, the patient continues to breathe on his own, artificial respiration is not necessary during twilight sleep (sedation).
