IF HAVE GREAT FEAR OF PAIN AND NEEDLES
Under general anesthesia, you are completely asleep during the treatment or operation.
Our anesthesiologist will have a pre-sedation consultation with you prior to the actual OR appointment. He will go over all your health aspects, to learn about any pre-existing conditions that must be taken into account. He is going to walk you through the entire steps of the general anesthesia, including how for example, you should continue taking your medication. It is important that you do not eat anything for 6 hours prior to anesthesia and do not drink anything for two hours prior to anesthesia to minimize any risks (please stick to tea or still water only).
Not infrequently, patients have fears of dental treatment in general, of pain or needles. In any case, we do not expect patients to come to an operation calmly and relaxed. So, naturally we will try to make sure that you feel safe and secure in our rooms. Contributing to this is our personal, long-term experience, our state of the art equipment and the use of well-tolerated and pleasant anesthetics.
It is our goal that you already experience the sleep phase as pleasant. This alone is a good prerequisite for a pleasant relaxed sleep phase until the anesthesia wares off, with rapidly regaining of orientation – regardless of the patient’s age. We use only short-acting substances, which are administered evenly throughout the entire duration of the operation.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact our anesthesia team.
