FOR YOUR DENTAL IMPLANTOLOGY, DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE PRESENCE OF THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST DURING YOUR ENTIRE INTERVENTION
When undergoing dental surgery, it is important to ensure the presence of certain professionals. We have already talked about the role played by maxillofacial surgeons, while in this article we will elaborate on the function and skills of anesthesiologists.
The role of the anesthesiologist is important for several reasons; let’s see why:
1. IN-DEPTH ANAMNESIS OF THE PATIENT
The anesthesiologist is the one who is responsible for identifying the most appropriate medication for the patient who is to undergo anesthesia surgery.
In this evaluation, several aspects become crucial, in particular: the patient’s age, the presence of any allergies, and any concomitant diseases. Considering these factors, the anesthesiologist prepares all the necessary arrangements to ensure a completely safe intervention. We come, now, to its functions during the surgery.
2. THE BEST ANESTHESIA FOR DENTAL SURGERIES IS CONSCIOUS SEDATION
Dental implant surgery can take place with various types of sedation; the best type for both the patient and doctors is that under conscious sedation.
Why is conscious sedation preferable to any other type of anesthesia?
Conscious sedation is a much less invasive technique than a procedure under general anesthesia; in fact, the medications used for this type of sedation allow the patient to feel comfortable throughout the procedure, making them feel a pleasant sense of well-being.
Side effects are practically zero as well, and compared with general anesthesia, sedation resolves within a short time, without causing any discomfort, and allowing the patient to be immediately self-sufficient and independent.
Finally, the postoperative pain, which is often related to rigid postures assumed under general anesthesia, is eliminated in this type of sedation: the patient is completely physically relaxed during the procedure, resulting in less postoperative pain.
How is this type of sedation performed?
Lying on the dental chair, the patient receives anesthesia and after a very short time will start to feel completely at ease, while remaining alert and awake throughout the entire procedure. Due to the feeling of well-being and relaxation experienced, not only physically but also, and most importantly, psychologically the memory of the surgery will be completely positive.
The different type of medications used also prevents the patient from the potential pain following surgery under general anesthesia (a side effect of medications).
THEREFORE, CAN WE SAY THAT CONSCIOUS SEDATION IS THE BEST SOLUTION ESPECIALLY IN PATIENTS WHO ARE AFRAID OF THE DENTIST OR AFRAID OF THE PAIN?
Yes, in light of these considerations we can say that this type of sedation is the most recommended especially in patients who are scared of the dentist or the procedure. Especially “dental-phobic” patients, who will indeed be able to cope “lightly” with the surgery, bringing a positive experience with no trauma! The patient will be able to leave the clinic immediately after the intervention in a normal psychophysical condition, identical to the one before medication.
