Dentistry under anesthesia

Anesthetic dentistry is a service that we have created to meet the expectations and Patients’ needs. As part of the visit, we provide a full range of dental services in the field of: conservative dentistry, dental surgery, prosthetics – both for adults and children.

Both initial consultation and treatments – if there are no contraindications – it can take place in one day. During the consultation, the doctor asks in detail about diseases or ailments that can be excluded in use of general anesthesia (e.g. sensitization). Your safety and satisfaction are priority for us , therefore your safety during the treatment is supervised by experienced anesthesiologists.

Advantages of the procedure under anesthesia

Anesthetic dentistry allows you to perform simple procedures and complicated operations, especially among adult patients with dentophobia, that is, panic fear of treatment dental care (e.g. with sounds and smells, needle and injection). It is estimated that more than half of Poles avoid visits because of fear, which worsens his health problems.

Procedures performed under general anesthesia allow you to relieve pain and reduce stress. This occasion turns off the patient’s awareness and defensive reflexes, which he fully recovers about 2 hours after the procedure.

  • do not eat for 5 hours before the planned procedure (note – milk is included in solid food),
  • you must not drink for 3 hours, on the day of the treatment you can only drink still water and tea,
  • the anaesthesiologist should be consulted about taking oral medications,
  • just before the procedure, dentures and contact lenses should be removed.
  • In case of breaking any of the above-mentioned rules – i.e eating anything or drinking – you should always report this fact to the doctor who will postpone the procedure to an hour later or even another day.
  • Similarly, you should resign from the surgery (postpone it to another date) if you are going through it infection with accompanying fever, cough or severe runny nose. Especially a respiratory infection (pneumonia, bronchitis, laryngitis).
  • Unstable chronic diseases such as bronchial asthma, hypertension or ischemic heart disease.

Dental narcosis in children

Very often , general anesthesia (narcosis) is necessary when treating children. In this event, they should be prepared for the procedure, explaining in a simple way what will happen to them, and by honest answering their questions. It is important that the baby does not get scared and feel safely in the hands of a doctor. You can also ask to conduct the same interview yourself with a specialist – to overcome the anxiety or stress of a toddler.

If the child has had an unpleasant experience of visiting the office before at a dentist, you should explain to him that this time it will be different, because he will fall asleep first in patent’s shoulders, and when he wakes up, the teeth will be fully healed. So he/she will not be afraid nor get any pain.

We invite you to our facility, where we will provide you with comprehensive dentistry care.
