Very often dentists must confront the fact that many patients are afraid of dental procedures. Work at the clinic “Smile Studio” is aimed at providing clients with maximum comfort which is why we offer our patients an opportunity to treat teeth in sleep. In other words this state is called sedation.
WHAT IMPLIES DENTAL TREATMENT IN SLEEP IN THE DENTISTRY “SMILE STUDIO”?
On patient’s request in case of fear or discomfort before the dental treatment we invite an anesthesiologist to our clinic. He brings the patient into the state of sedation. This state is caused by delivering from fear, pain and all anxieties, which person can experience during the treatment. The patient is conscious and, if necessary, can follow doctor’s instructions during the procedure. The state of surface sedation guarantees absence of fear and pain. Lying in the dentist’s chair with memory-effect, the patient feels most comfortable.
WHAT MANIPULATIONS DOES SURFACE SEATION REQUIRE?
Not every dental procedure requires bringing patients into this state. Treatment in sleep is practiced by the following manipulations:
- Large work volume of therapeutic or orthopedic treatment. In the state of sedation it is absolutely possible to carry out complete mouth debridement and to fill all teeth damaged by dental caries, to elaborate and to fill root canals in several teeth in one go.
- Extraction of wisdom teeth. For one single visit to the dentist, who will use piezosurgical device and other extra equipment for sedation, you can have all 4 wisdom teeth extracted.
- Total implantation. If there are more than 3 implants to be fixed at one time, then specialists of the clinic “Smile Studio” can offer to carry out implantation in sleep. In this case the patient experiences no stress which directly affects the quality of postoperative local healing.
Before the treatment in sleep patients need to consult with an anesthesiologist. He will render a number of recommendations that need to be performed by the patient the day before the procedure.
DENTAL TREATMENT IN SLEEP IS NOT A VARIETY OF CLASSICAL ANESTHESIA
