General Anesthesia and Sedation

Sedation or general anesthesia can be used to perform dental treatments for children, mentally handicapped or patients with movement restriction, where local anesthesia alone is not sufficient or the level of fear and anxiety is very high and adequate communication cannot be achieved.

Sedation is a numbing procedure that is applied in small doses to create a mild sleep state while remaining conscious. The patient still obeys the commands in sedation. It can also be preferred in cases where general anesthesia may be inconvenient

General anesthesia is when the patient is fully anesthetized and put into a deep sleep phase. It remains in a state of general anesthesia until the procedure is completed by inserting a breathing tube through the mouth or nose.

    Dental treatments under conscious sedation

    With conscious sedation, the most comprehensive dental treatments can be completed more easily.

    Dental treatment may become impossible in people with dentist phobia, mentally disabled individuals and similar situations.
    In such cases, conscious sedation that puts it into a light sleep mode can be used by dentists.

    Dental treatments in fully equipped operating rooms under general anesthesia

    With the help of general anesthesia, your dental treatment is possible even in difficult situations.

    It is possible to perform dental treatments by switching to a deep sleep phase with general anesthesia in people with advanced phobia, in treatments that require intensive surgical procedures such as block bone grafts, and individuals with high gag and vomiting reflexes. General anesthesia is performed by specialist doctors.

    These are dental treatments performed on individuals who have entered a full sleep phase using the general anesthesia method.
