GENERAL ANAESTHESIA

  • Does the thought of dental treatment make you anxious and afraid?
  • Do you have a strong gag-reflex and feel nausea during dental interventions?
  • Would you like to undergo multiple interventions in the course of one treatment session?
  • Are you worried that you wouldn’t be able to sit through the treatment without moving? (It is common with hyperactive children and adults.)
  • Would you like to shut out the outside world, not know about anything and remember nothing?

If either of the above statements is true for you, the solution is general anaesthesia during dental interventions.

BEFORE GENERAL ANAESTHESIA

  • General anaesthesia requires preliminary testing, which needs to be done before your travel, at home. If requested, we provide you detailed information.
  • Don’t eat anything for six hours before the general anaesthesia. And you shouldn’t drink anything three hours before.
  • Inform your specialist previously about all the regular medication you are taking.
  • On the day of the treatment, wear comfortable clothes, preferably a short-sleeved item on top. We ask women patients not to wear any nail polish on their left ring finger, as we put a censor clip here.
  • Make sure to come with a companion. If you don’t have anyone to accompany you, we provide a nurse to accompany you on agreement.
  • Before the treatment, our anaesthesiologist will examines you and answer all your questions.

THE PROCEDURE OF GENERAL ANAESTHESIA

  • You lie down comfortably in the dentist’s chair.
  • The anaesthesiologist puts in the I.V., and while holds an oxygen mask over your face, starts the anaesthesia.
  • You will fall in deep sleep and from now on you are not aware of the outside world and don’t feel anything.
  • After you fall asleep, the anaesthesiologist secures the airways through the nose.
  • When our anaesthesiologist is finished and finds everything normal, dental intervention begins, during which the anaesthesiologist team is present and checks the anaesthetic procedure.
  • By the end of the dental treatment, the narcotics are metabolised. The anaesthesiologist removes the respiratory tube, and with their supervision, you start regaining consciousness gradually.

AFTER GENERAL ANAESTHESIA

  • You won’t have any negative experiences after the treatment, you might feel tired, though.
  • The anaesthesiologist determines when you can leave the surgery.
  • You can only leave the surgery with a companion. Should you not have anybody to accompany you, our surgery will arrange for a nurse companion.
  • You cannot drive for 24 hours after the intervention. The aftermaths of anaesthesia may affect your reflexes and judgement during this interval.
  • Spend the rest of your day relaxing. Don’t do any strenuous activities and spend the night in a half-sitting position.
  • Stick to your specialist’s other instructions.
