Health Oral hygiene and dental care are essential to our body’s health. Your dentist wants to ensure you get the treatment you need without the anxiety you would normally feel during a visit. IV sedation and general anesthesia are safe, and comfortable ways to have your teeth cared for. With sedation dentistry, you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. In fact, you may not even remember most of your treatment! What is IV Sedation? Sedation dentistry is used to help put you at ease by virtually eliminating the pain associated with dental procedures. Intravenous (IV) sedation is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort. Some of the benefits of IV sedation include: *Extremely effective for moderate to severe anxiety *Quick acting *The level of sedation can be adjusted during the procedure *You can get all your dental work completed in one visit During IV sedation, an anti-anxiety drug is administered into your bloodstream to achieve a state of "deep conscious sedation." Although you are not actually asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation. You may not even remember much about your procedure after it is completed. Your appointment will seem like minutes, rather than hours. Throughout your procedure, your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure will be closely monitored. Patients generally recover quickly, although you may feel slightly groggy immediately afterwards. On the day of your procedure, you will need to have another adult with you to take you home, as you will be groggy from the sedation. What is General Anesthesia? Unlike local anesthesia that only numbs your mouth, general anesthesia puts you in a sleep-like state for dental procedures. Although the majority of dental procedures can be performed without its use, general anesthesia has been an important part of the world of dentistry since the 1840s. With that being said, general anesthesia that is used in dentistry is typically less invasive than its use in the rest of the medical world. Anesthetics can be topically applied, injected or swallowed. Dentists often apply topical anesthetics with a cotton swab to an area of the mouth where a procedure such as a restoration will be performed. The anesthetic numbs the affected area, and are also used to prepare an area for injection of an anesthetic. Novocaine and Lidocaine are the most common kind of injectable anesthetics. They are used to block the nerves from transmitting signals and are used for more major types of procedures, such as fillings and root canals. Anesthesia may be used to: *Relax you *Block pain *Make you sleepy or forgetful *Make you unconscious during surgery General anesthesia affects the brain as well as the entire body. You may get it intravenously or you may breathe it in. With general anesthesia, you are completely unaware and do not feel pain during the surgery. General anesthesia often causes you to forget the surgery and the time right after it. Local anesthesia is used to numb a small part of the body. You get a shot of anesthetic directly into the surgical area to block pain. Your dentist or anesthesiologist may also apply a numbing medicine to part of your mouth, to make the injection less painful. During your procedure you may stay awake, or you may get medicine to help you relax or sleep, such as sedation. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
