Anesthesiology and Reanimation
In our anesthesiology clinic, dental treatments are made under general anesthesia and intravenous sedation. If a patient cannot be treated in the dental unit for any reason; service is given in our fully equipped operating room.
In which occasions dental treatment under general anesthesia and intravenous sedation is needed?
-Pediatric patients who cannot be treated in the dental unit.
-Patients who are over anxious about being treated in the dental unit.
-Patients who have excessive gag reflex
-Operations which will last so long that patients' mouth cannot be kept open during the process
-Neurologic diseases which prevents the patient from properly communicating such as Alzheimer and Dementia
-Disabled patients who have Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation etc.
Before the operation, detailed physical examination is given by anesthesiologist and necessary laboratory examinations are asked for. We have also added Covid-19 Ig G and Ig M tests because of the pandemic. These antibody tests give us the information whether the patient had had Covid-19 or not. Thus, our patients can be safely operated.
Firstly, the patients are taken to the preparation room accompanied by a relative or friend. Then, sedative medicine is given in sufficient dosage and proper technic approved by the anesthesiologist. After enough sedation is provided, the patients are taken to the operation room accompanied by health staff. General anesthesia or intravenous sedation is given. After the dental treatment, patients are woken and taken back to the preparation room. The patients rest here with a relative or friend until they are safely discharged. After necessary warnings, if the anesthesiologist decides it is safe, patients are discharged.
