The role of anesthesiology in dental treatment increases. By using various anesthetic techniques, comfort for the patient and the dentist is created, the dentist has the opportunity to perform a lot of manipulations for a short period of time. General anesthesia is the only option for making an adequate and complete treatment in one appointment. The modern dental treatment, performed by a dental team is unthinkable without anesthesiologist. Sedation is an anesthesia type which provides calmness to the patent, fast recovery and most importantly, painless treatment.
Very often, the patients are surprised that they are able for one day to resolve all their dental issues and all of their carious defects to be done without any pain. And this is possible, because our teams work together with anesthesiologists. In some cases, treatment with such anesthesia type is the only option due to the treatment's duration (4-5 hours) or due to its complexity (surgical intervention), or the patients are in Bulgaria for a short period of time, or are very busy. This is the anesthesia type we strongly recommend because it provides security and peace for the clinically healthy patients and it is the only alternative for people with health issues. The utilization of anesthesiologists provides the opportunity for high-quality treatment of patients for whom the treatment in normal conditions is not possible. Such patients are people with mental issues and phobias, as well as patients that are prone to nausea in cases of manipulations, performed in their mouth. The general anesthesia is the only reasonable solution for treating disabled children and children with special needs. The team work of anesthesiologist and dentist allows adequate monitoring and control of complications with patients having serious general conditions, like hypertonia, heart or brain stroke in the past, etc. This treatment method is a novelty in the comprehensive approach to dental health. The only inconvenience is the length of the procedure but, on the other hand, it has plenty of other advantages:
Single visit, saving the patient and his family the stress and inconvenience, related to organization of transport and time.
Favorable operative conditions for the treating team, allowing the implementation of adequate dental treatment. With correct information about the general medical condition of the patient, proper selection of anesthetic equipment and proper patient's monitoring, the general anesthesia and sedation are completely safe and the existing risks are related to vein collapse or irritating cough, that passes away in short time.
