Anesthesia for Dental Surgeries

Every day at MedDental Clinic, we see many patients with varying behaviors and dental needs. Many of them coming for their dental treatments are in extreme pain. Unfortunately, many dental-phobic patients avoid visiting dentists and rather endure the nuisance of pain. The primary concern regarding dental surgery is the associated pain due to which patients avoid the treatments. Hence, our dentists strive to make every appointment as calm and comfortable as possible. For patients who avoid dentists, we offer exceptional sedation dentistry techniques to assist them in getting calm, relaxed, and comfortable during their dental procedures. Anesthesia is one of the best ways we use invasive dental procedures to decrease pain as much as possible for dental surgeries like implants, tooth extraction, periodontal procedures, etc.

When is anesthesia used?

Anesthesia is usually required for:

  • Dental-phobic patients who require dental care treatment
  • Patients in need of extensive treatments
  • Young children who need necessary treatment

Types of Anesthesia Used at MedDental Clinic Dubai

Our specialist dentists will facilitate you in opting for the type of anesthesia that is most appropriate according to your treatment. Your dental issues, anxiety levels, history of allergies, and overall well-being will be evaluated before prescribing the sedation options. The anesthesia types available at MedDental Clinic are:

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is a conscious form of sedation administered by injection under the skin on a particular spot where an incision needs to be made. It is normally used in general dentistry procedures like filling where a minor area needs to be numbed.

Inhalation Sedation

When patients need more relaxation beyond local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is given to them, an inhaled anesthesia. The patient remains conscious during the treatment, but it is sufficient for suppressing pain.

Note: Our surgeons don’t recommend and use laughing gas on our patients, as the efficiency of this anesthesia is questionable. It is often unpredictable, and its effects vary from one adult patient to another.

Oral sedation in combination with local anesthesia

After injecting the local anesthesia, a patient is sometimes given oral sedative medication through the mouth to help them relax and calm down. It creates a drowsy and relaxed feeling. The drug dosage depends on the severity of the anxiety levels, which can have minimal to moderate sedation.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia leads the patient into an unconscious state. The patients go into a deep sleep through the medication so they can not feel the pain during the treatment. Besides, it enables dentists to perform complicated and lengthy procedures with accuracy and precision while the patients are unaware of the happenings. Our doctors can only use it when required for extensive treatments in our partner hospitals’ operation rooms, as the presence of an anesthesiologist is needed throughout the whole treatment.

Licensed and specifically trained specialist dentists

Not every dentist is certified to carry out dental procedures using general anesthesia. However, at MedDental Clinic Dubai, we have licensed surgeons and expert dentists specially trained to perform dental practices in clinical and hospital safelysettings.

Dr. Philippe Chanavaz is one of our consultants, oral and maxillofacial surgeons with exceptional skills in dental implantology. He performs fast and mini-invasive procedures like teeth extractions using local anesthesia.

Pr Pierre Bouletreau is one of our consultants, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, with exceptional skills in orthognathic/jaw surgeries and other particular face surgeries such as orbital decompression.

Dr. Asha Ponnappa is another specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon who performs teeth extractions and dental implantology using local anesthesia to relax the patients.

However, in more difficult or intricate cases, our surgeon, Dr. Philippe, offers conscious sedation or general anesthesia to relieve the patients’ fear and ehension and make them more comfortable. For such cases, we have collaborated with our Dubai Partners’ Hospitals, where the surgery is performed. Both hospitals are close to our clinic; hence, the patients will not have to go the extra mile for their treatments.
