Is it possible to undergo dental treatment without feeling pain? Many people associate dental procedures with anxiety, discomfort, and long time spent in the dentist’s chair. However, thanks to the use of anesthesia, it doesn’t have to be this way. The application of anesthesia in a dental office significantly reduces the anxiety associated with treatment and eliminates the pain during the procedure. Our clinic offers the possibility of undergoing the procedure under general anesthesia, ensuring the patient full comfort and peace of mind throughout the entire process.
Narkosis, also known as general anesthesia, is a controlled and safe sedation of the patient during a medical procedure, under the supervision of a team of doctors. Its main goal is to provide the patient with a state of relaxation and ensure the smooth conduct of the planned treatment.
How does anesthesia work? A specifically tailored dose of a sedative temporarily interrupts the functioning of the nervous system. Anesthetics, special drugs administered to the patient, induce loss of consciousness, eliminate pain sensation, and cause muscle relaxation and stabilization of the circulatory system. This allows the dentist to perform even complex and time-consuming procedures while maintaining full control of the situation.
If the dental treatment process involves potential difficulties, it is worth considering the use of general anesthesia. This method is applied in fields such as conservative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, surgical treatment, and implantology. However, there are situations in which dental treatment under general anesthesia is particularly recommended. These include:
People who opt for dental treatment under general anesthesia are driven by various motivations, including fear of the procedure, the presence of an illness, or negative experiences related to dental visits. Through general anesthesia, they achieve:

How should one prepare for anesthesia? A crucial step in preparation is a consultation with the anesthesiologist. During this consultation, the doctor reviews the patient’s medical history, conducts an examination, and assesses whether the patient is suitable for undergoing the procedure under anesthesia. The anesthesiologist also provides information about the course of anesthesia and associated risks. The patient receives detailed guidelines regarding the tests they should undergo before the operation. Before a planned procedure, the patient should not eat for 6 hours, and drinking fluids should be stopped 2 hours before the planned start. It is important to avoid smoking directly before the operation.
In the case of anesthesia, inhalation sedation is possible. In such a case, the patient should not eat or drink for a minimum of 3 hours before the planned procedure. It is also advisable to arrange for a companion to assist the patient with simple tasks after waking up from anesthesia. On the day of the procedure, if the patient is on regular medication, they should take it at the usual time. If there are any doubts, the anesthesiologist can provide specific instructions regarding the medications being taken. It is also important to refrain from applying makeup before the surgery.
There are many different contraindications to undergoing dental treatment under anesthesia. Firstly, it’s important to mention cases where the patient is allergic to at least one component of the anesthesia used. Additionally, the presence of respiratory tract diseases can be a contraindication. Among other factors that preclude the use of anesthesia are diabetes, heart conditions, and kidney function problems. Therefore, before undergoing dental treatment under anesthesia, a thorough medical history and necessary diagnostic tests are required.
Introduction: The patient puts on a mask through which they receive oxygen. The anesthesiologist administers the appropriate amount of anesthetics, causing the patient to lose consciousness. As a result, the muscles relax, and pain sensation is inhibited.
Maintenance: During the dental procedure, the anesthesiologist monitors the patient’s condition and provides additional doses of sedative medications to keep them in a state of deep sleep. This period can last for several hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure.
Awakening: After the dental procedure is completed, the patient is gradually awakened and remains under supervision for about 2 hours until the effects of the sedatives completely wear off. During this time, the patient receives instructions regarding further oral care and information about the next dental appointment.
Dental procedures performed under general anesthesia are safe because they involve two groups of specialists: the dental team and the anesthesiology team. The dentist and qualified anesthesiology personnel are responsible for overseeing the anesthesia process, carefully controlling the dosage of sedative medications administered. The role of the anesthesiologist is particularly crucial throughout the entire procedure, providing constant control over the patient’s condition and ensuring their safety.
