When are general anesthesia and sedation needed?

Since many practices of dentistry may cause pain, the anesthesia, which is roughly defined as absence of sensation, is an important aid. Under normal clinical conditions, a group of teeth or a site of chin can be anesthetized with local anesthesia to perform procedures without pain, such as filling a tooth, root canal therapy, and tooth extraction. However, this is not always enough because behaviors do not have an effect on the control of feelings such as fear and anxiety. Even if we don’t cause pain, we may force the capacity of a child and cause dental fear especially with increased number of visits. It is very important to keep the patient’s mouth open adequately, to comply with our commands and instructions, and not to give uncontrolled reactions in order to achieve a successful treatment as well as to protect the patient from getting injured by sharp instruments rotating at high speed. A child, who meets toothache and associated discomfort at a very small age but resists the treatment, can be a serious problem and source of distress to parents.

Is there a risk for a patient?

Is there a risk for a patient to be anesthetized and not to come out of anesthesia?

Any drugs administered to the body have side effects and risk of various grades. But, general anesthesia and especially unconscious sedation are safely administered by an anesthesiologist and reanimation specialist in a fully equipped operating room only after detailed evaluation of general condition and medical history of the patient. It is also very important for a patient to follow recommendations before and after the operation. Initially, the increased number of patients died due to general anesthesia is associated with administration of anesthesia by a general anesthesia technician not by a specialist. In addition, the advances in drugs and devices have now significantly reduced the risks.
