During general anaesthesia the patient will be in a medically induced sleep-like state, unconscious and unable to feel pain in any part of the body. At Kliinik 32, the dental treatment room has an anaesthetic machine with an integrated monitoring device that is similar to the equipment used during general surgeries in large hospitals in Estonia. The patient will be cared for by the anaesthesiologist and nurse anaesthetist and following the operation, the patient can comfortably recover in the recovery room. General anaesthesia is suitable for the surgical treatment of more complicated cases. By request, general anaesthesia can also be administered to patients who dread dental procedures. Usually, we are able to lessen the fear and discomfort of the patients by using other methods of painless treatment.
General anaesthesia requires a very detailed account of the patient’s medical history. It is especially important that the patient does not have infectious diseases accompanied by fever or any other respiratory infections. The patient cannot eat or drink at least six hours prior to the procedure. Unless agreed otherwise, the patient can continue taking their daily prescribed drugs. The patient must find a friend or family member that will come pick them up after the procedure.
We offer treatment under general anaesthesia for patients above three years of age.
