Dental treatment while sleeping

In 2021, anesthesiologists are working at the Lumi-Dent dental clinics in Kyiv in the ObolonSolomenka and Poznyaky districts, who can provide the extraction or treatment of teeth under general anesthesia (under sedation) in one visit and at a low cost.

You will not feel pain from manipulations and be afraid when treating teeth under anesthesia in Lumi-Dent clinics.

More precisely, the child or adult organism is in a state of drug-induced sleep – it is general sedation in dentistry.

Extraction and treatment of teeth under general anesthesia for children and adults

The service of general sedation in adult and pediatric dentistry is popular among the patients, such as both adults and children have a great fear of any procedure at the dentist.

Under general sedation in dentistry, the following procedures can be performed:

  • removal of temporary and permanent teeth, including third molars;
  • implantation;
  • prosthetics;
  • all other directions of dental care are also possible under general anesthesia.

Quite a few visitors of our dentistry have a discomfort before dental treatment. This fear was generated by Soviet medicine, when anesthetics were weak, there was still no complete sedation in dentistry, and the approach of dentists was not client-oriented.

Having experienced serious pain several times at a doctor's appointment, of course, there is no great desire to return the discomfort.

Therefore, many people deliberately do not go to the doctor when a problem occurs, they clog pain with pills in the hope that "it will go away by itself." However, this position is quite a serious misconception that leads to an aggravation of the problem, an increase in the cost of dental services, and often to the extraction of teeth, and subsequently to an expensive dental implantation.

Fortunately, today you can forever stop being afraid of visiting a dentist with the help of general sedation in the Lumi-Dent dental clinics (Kyiv).

Is anybody here who does not dream to cure all teeth at once, especially to do it under general anesthesia? Fall asleep in one visit and wake up completely cured after intravenous sedation.

Dental treatment in a medical sleep can be safely performed not only for adults, but also for a child.

Who needs general sedation in dentistry?

Who chooses sleep removal or dental treatment under general dental anesthesia: 

  • Those who have a great fear of any visit to the dentist – they do not feel anything in a medical sleep;
  • People who are allergic to local anesthetics - drugs for general medical sleep practically do not give allergic reactions;
  • Those who want to pull out or cure everything at once, with maximum comfort for themselves, especially if there is a long work ahead, more than 2 hours. It is quite difficult to cure all the problems in one visit without dental anesthesia, since it is difficult to keep your mouth open for a long time. In dentistry, when treating in medication sleep, a special fixator performs this work.
  • Quite often, our clients prefer to be treated in medication sleep when installing veneers, implants, total prosthetics or treating multiple caries in one visit.
  • Removal of third molars under anesthesia - medical sleep allows the patient not to suffer for a long time, because sometimes this operation takes an hour or more, and all the time the patient has to keep his mouth as wide open as possible, because it is often extremely difficult to get to the tooth. It is much easier for the surgeon to remove third molars under general anesthesia, since the patient lies quietly in his sleep, and does not interfere with the doctor performing extremely difficult and responsible removal, often with cutting out a section of the jawbone with a piezotome, and then suturing the hard-to-reach area. Removing a wisdom tooth in a medical sleep is an extremely popular procedure among our patients.
  • General sedation is especially relevant in pediatric dentistry when treating children. Most of them are very afraid to open their mouths to the doctor, and even more to give them to do something there.

Treatment of children in medication sleep

In the Lumi-Dent dental clinics in Kyiv, there is a special team of anesthesiologists licensed in pediatric anesthesiology.

Dental treatment for children under anesthesia is safe, moreover, the child will not develop a lifelong fear of visiting the dentist, - explains anesthesiologist Rіaba Natalіia Serhiivna.

The cost of treating temporary teeth under general anesthesia for children sequence higher than for adults. This is due to a higher price for children's drugs, equipment for treating children in medication sleep, and payment for the work of pediatric dentistry specialists.

When treating a child under sedation, the doctor uses slightly different sedatives. Droppers may not be used so as not to scare the child with injections. The child either inhales the drug through a mask, or receives a verified dose of anesthetic intravenously through a catheter and falls asleep, and upon completion of dental treatment (after 10-15 minutes), the pediatric anesthesiologist removes him from general sedation.

Pediatric dentistry with sedation is the best method to treat and pull out a child's teeth.

Which children are suitable for general anesthesia?

Treatment of teeth under anesthesia for children is recommended in the following cases:

  • the child's character is non-contact;
  • there is a negative experience of visiting the dentist (it was painful, very unpleasant, the consultation lasted a long time, and the child developed fear, or there is a reluctance to visit a dentist);
  • a lot of pediatric dentistry procedures (when there is no time, but it is necessary to remove or treat several temporary teeth at once. It is more convenient, easier and faster for a child to pull out and treat temporary teeth under anesthesia than to do it under local anesthesia).

At what age a child can be treated under anesthesia?

The treatment of children under anesthesia has its own contraindications. The age of a child under 1 year in pediatric dentistry with anesthesia is the first of them, upon reaching the minimum age, the doctor can already work with children under dental sedation, if the latter are completely healthy.

Before the start of dental treatment for children in medication sleep, an interview with parents is mandatory, in order to ensure that the child does not have allergic reactions to any pharmaceutical drugs.

We take care of the safety of your child - general sedation in the Lumi-Dent dental clinics (Kyiv) is carried out only after a meticulous examination.

How the introduction of children into medical sleep is carried out?

  • After inserting the catheter (using a mask), the child falls asleep within 5-7 seconds. While the little patient is under sedation, he does not experience any unpleasant sensations.

  • So that when the drug is administered intravenously, the child also does not experience discomfort, mild anesthetics are often used before sedation at the area of the catheter fixation.

  • At the end of the procedure, children begin to wake up in 10-15 minutes. Full awakening after sleep is within an hour. At this time, the little ones do not experience any unpleasant sensations (nausea, headaches and dizziness).

The technology of dental treatment under anesthesia in 2020

The treatment under general sedation makes dental visits very comfortable. You can no longer worry about any unpleasant or painful sensations.

You should come to the dental clinic, lay down in a chair and fall asleep. When you wake up, everything has been already done. Nothing hurt and nothing hurts. You have not seen anything and do not remember anything. What is better and more comfortable for the patient?

  • pull out a child's teeth;
  • remove third molars under anesthesia;
  • extraction of teeth under anesthesia, for example, with periodontal disease;
  • anesthesia at the dentist will make dental implantation comfortable;
  • treat children and adults who have allergies to conventional injections;
  • anesthesia allows teeth to be inserted by the dentist;

Types of sedation in dental clinics (Kyiv)

The provision of dental care under sedation occurs in several degrees of conduct - superficial and deep.

  • With deep dental sedation in dentistry, the client is completely immersed in sleep and does not remember all the details of the treatment.
  • During superficial sedation, the patient is conscious, but he has no pain, fears and worries associated with the treatment.

Benefits of superficial dental anesthesia

  • The patient is in touch and reacts to the doctor's words, so the treatment is of a better quality - there is an opportunity to take control pictures, turn your head, rinse your mouth, and so on;
  • There is less toxic load on the body, since a much smaller amount of the drug is injected;
  • The risks associated with respiratory arrest and heart problems are significantly reduced.

There are no absolute contraindications to carrying out procedures under general sedation in dentistry, only serious mental and cardiovascular diseases are relative exceptions.

How does dental sedation work in one visit?

  • A person lies down on a chair, and an anesthesiologist inserts an ordinary IV catheter into a vein of the arm;
  • Using a manual method (syringe) or an automatic method (using a special device - an infusometer), the anesthesiologist begins to inject a special drug for general sedation;
  • Rapid and deep sleep occurs quickly, during which the visitor does not feel pain or other discomfort.

After treatment under general anesthesia for an hour, the patient is in our dental clinics in Kyiv under the supervision of an anesthesiologist. An hour after sedation, it is possible to carry out normal activities, work, drive a car.

An alternative to deep sedation in dentistry

Medical sleep is a safe procedure today, but there is an easier alternative in the form of painless local computer anesthesia.

All our dental clinics are equipped with this technology, and it is by right the most popular among the visitors of Lumi-Dent dental clinics.

How to treat the teeth for children under sedation?

Sedation for children is a real salvation for the youngest patients, a relief for their parents and a factor of comfortable work for the doctor.

As a rule, this is xenon mask sedation, which is recommended:

  • during the first visit to pediatric dentistry (prevention of dentophobia in adulthood);
  • before the upcoming complex treatment (it can be difficult for children of 4–6 years to sit in the dentist's chair even during 10 minutes, and even more so to sit motionless for 40–50 minutes);
  • when removing temporary teeth and other surgical procedures.

Numerous studies have confirmed that inhaled sedation for children is a completely safe method of support for treatment of any level of complexity.

Its use is possible literally from the first years of a child's life, if a qualified doctor of pediatric dentistry carries out the calculation of dosage and treatment, in principle.

What is the difference between sedation and anesthesia?

According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists, anesthesia and sedation are the stages of a drug-controlled change in the patient's conditions.

The last step in this chain of state transition is anesthesia, and the chain is the following:

  • minimal sedation - the introduction of sedatives in a small amount, combined with local anesthesia;
  • superficial sedation (treatment the bright-eyed patient);
  • over-sedation or deep sedation (partial consciousness or treatment while asleep);
  • general anesthesia.
What is sedation compared to anesthesia:
  • treatment in dentistry, in which a patient can remain bright-eyed (which is excluded under general anesthesia);
  • manipulation, which has practically no side effects (while from anesthesia sometimes it is necessary to withdraw up to a day);
  • impact on the body, which does not carry an additional load on the liver;
  • a procedure after which a person can immediately return to business (including driving).

A certified physician anesthesiologist does this job.

If we talk about dental treatment under inhalation anesthesia, in this case, a tube from another device is inserted into the patient's nose, through which he inhales a soothing gas.

What is sedation in dentistry?

Dental sedation is a method of medicinal action on a patient in dentistry with special drugs that inhibit the central nervous system and weaken its reactions to external and internal stimulus:
