What does sedation mean??
Many dental patients experience tremendous fear from the dentist and even tremble at the first appointment. This fear may come from an earlier bad experience or from trauma that cannot be forgotten in anxiety patients.
With larger dental treatment such as tooth implantation, the implantologist must be able to work in peace, which is very difficult, if not impossible, for anxious patients who move their heads back and forth or cannot sustain a long dental treatment while sitting still.
In modern dentistry, as an anxious patient, you have the option of having dental treatment with sedation.
In medicine, sedation means that the functions of the central nervous system are dampened with sedatives. This treatment can only be performed by an anesthetist who is present throughout the dental treatment or surgical procedure. Before treatment, the patient is prepared for sedation. He is allowed to do not eat anything about 2 hours before the treatment and a sedative is given just before dental treatment.
The anesthetist discusses with the dentist and implantologist how long the procedure will take and what will be done. By dosing the sedative intravenously you can achieve how "awake" the patient should be. Sedation is also called twilight sleep because it is a sleep-like state in which the patient is. He can respond to questions from the dentist and dental staff, he does what the dentist tells him, but after the treatment, after the sedative is stopped, he has to rest, sleep in some cases, and he almost remembers nothing of the treatment. The functions of the central nervous system are thus dampened during treatment with sedation, the doctor can work in peace, which is also in the interest of the dental patient.
Sedation is often confused with anesthesia in everyday life, which is obviously wrong. With anesthesia, the patient cannot wake up during the entire treatment, with sedation, the anesthetist can, at the doctor’s request, administer the sedative to the patient so that the patient sometimes reacts sometimes, sometimes almost only sleeps.
After treatment with sedation, the patient must remain in the dentist’s office about 1-2 hours after the treatment. He can only leave the practice with an accompanying person and driving is not permitted in the next 24 hours!
