  • Treatment under analgosedation

For analgosedation, an intravenous access is placed in the patient, and the strong sedative Dormicum is injected.
The drug causes the patient to become calm and sleepy and eliminates the fear of the impending operation.
The procedure also makes it possible to perform dental or oral surgery on anxious patients.
In addition, analgosedation helps patients with a strong gag reflex to eliminate that reflex.

Treatment under general anesthesia
The spectrum of dental therapy under general anesthesia includes surgical intervention, fillings in front and side teeth, root canal treatment and prosthetic treatment with individual crowns, bridges and removable solutions as well as periodontal treatment.
General anesthesia facilitates dental treatment of children, anxious patients and patients with physical or mental challenges. In addition to dental treatment, surgical interventions such as tooth extractions, root tip resections, surgical extractions of displaced teeth or periodontal treatment can be carried out under general anesthesia.
With anxious children, general anesthesia typically is used to fill decayed teeth, to insert milk tooth crowns, if required, and to remove teeth that cannot be conserved.
For adult patients who have a dental phobia, general anesthesia can be used for unpleasant treatments such as grinding teeth and taking impressions.
Physically or mentally challenged patients who suffer from strong abrasion are provided with general anesthesia when impressions of the teeth are made prior to the construction of prostheses.
