FAQ Twilight sleep
What is the difference between twilight sleep and general anesthesia?
In contrast to general anesthesia, artificial ventilation is not necessary during twilight sleep. You breathe on your own initiative, but you are in a relaxed and fear-free twilight sleep. In Germany, training in intravenous analgesia (twilight sleep) is part of the training catalog within oral surgery specialist dentist training. We therefore do not need an anesthetist to perform the twilight sleep, which minimizes your costs.
How does twilight sleep work??
In the case of analgesia dosing – or also known as twilight sleep – a specially trained specialist dentist will administer pain medication (analgesics) and sedative or sleeping pills (sedatives) to you through a venous access under supervision of the cardiovascular functions.
What does twilight sleep bring??
You are given strong sedative medication when you have a twilight sleep. This leads to a deep state of relaxation, which makes the treatment pleasant. The drugs are anxiolytic and let you sleep. H. You can’t remember the treatment. In addition, we also administer medication to prevent pain and swelling after the procedure. Overall, the healing phase is more pleasant for the patient.
Is the dusk sleep paid for by my health insurance?
Priv ate health insurance companies cover the costs for treatment in twilight sleep depending on the insurance contract. If you are unsure, we ask you to clarify this with your insurance company beforehand. Insured persons of the statutory health insurance companies do not receive a subsidy for twilight sleep. We charge 9 € per session. If an anesthetist is needed, the costs increase to approx. € 150.
