Dental Sedation-Pain-free teeth treatment

– get to know the services at Victoria Clinic

Sedation is a procedure that provides the patient with complete absence of pain, stress and anxiety and retrograde forgetfulness (i.e. the patient does not feel anything and does not remember the procedure).

How does sedation work?
Intravenous sedation (analgosedation) is a measure to calm the patient down and reduce his anxiety during the dental procedure. Carried out only by a team of anesthesiologists (doctor and assistants), analgosedation is a supplement to local anesthesia. It consists of intravenous administration of analgesic and sedative drugs as well as continuous monitoring of the patient. Analgosedation allows to keep the patient in a limited state of consciousness, without the need for general anesthesia, which increases the safety of this method.

Indications for sedation are: dentophobia – fear of dental surgery – long surgical procedures – severe vomiting – hyperactivity – chronic diseases requiring the presence of an anesthesiologist during the procedure – treatments requiring intravenous administration of antibiotics and anti-edema drugs

Contraindications to sedation:
– A strict contraindication is non-compliance with the fasting order. – Pregnant women – Patients with uncontrolled diabetes – Patients with renal and hepatic impairment – Patients with uncontrolled hyperthyroidism – Patients using psychoactive substances patients with advanced respiratory diseases such as asthma, emphysema, bronchiectasis

INHALATION SEDATION

Inhalation sedation using a mixture of gases in the form of nitrous oxide and oxygen is a safe and pleasant method to forget about fear of treatment. This method is widely accepted and enthusiastically received by patients who are afraid of dental visits. Inhalation sedation causes a state of physical relaxation, a pleasant daze while maintaining the patient’s awareness and basic reflexes. The patient responds to doctor’s orders, is able to speak, although his consciousness may be partially limited.
