Answer:

Dear user,

To use fluorbehandling to different kinds of treatments. It is always an evaluative case when it is necessary or not. There is not dangerous side effects of a fluorbehandling. If you swallow a lot of fluoride, it can cause stomach upset, but it is no problem at the dentist. If you are pregnant, but not have too high fluorkoncentrationer as it can go out of the fetal teeth.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

What is general anesthesia?

Question:

What is general anesthesia?

Allan

Answer:

Dear Allan,

The word anesthesia has its origin from the Greek word narkosis, which means stunning. The professional word for narcosis, Anesthesia, which is also derived from a Greek word, anaisthesia, which means “no sense”. Anesthesiology is the study of bedøvelsesmidlers use. And doctors who have undergone basic training and rotation, can then specialize in anesthesiology, which is a duration of 4½ years.

There are many kinds of stunning. You can stun the local, delbedøvelse, which is to say that the patient is in consciousness, and only a certain area of the body is numbed. This seeing most at the dentist, when the dentist only stun the part of the mouth.

Another option is so that you call for general anesthesia, or a helbedøvelse, which is to say that the patient is not conscious during the procedure. At a helbedøvelse get the patient injected sleeping pills into a vein, then the patient in the course of a very short time will fall asleep. A helbedøvelse can also be given through a mask for the face, where the patient is given a bedøvegas.

General anesthesia for dental treatment can be given to virtually all patients, excluded patients with some specific chronic ailments such as asthma, smokers lungs, bronchitis, metabolism disorders, heart disease as well as severe obesity.

There are often some risks and side effects of anesthesia and the most common side effects are nausea and vomiting. Therefore, the patient should always be fixed before the anesthesia. The substances you use today has, however, reduced the extent of nausea and vomiting considerably, so that this only happens in rare cases.

In rare cases, deaths associated with anaesthesia, but since the reason will most often be a combination of surgery, anesthesia and the patient's state of health. Statistically speaking, when one does not take into account the patient's health condition or procedure type, the total mortality up to six days after stunning approx. 1 out of 10,000. They do not have other diseases, and should not have made a major surgery, the risk is significantly smaller. The risks of an intervention by the dentist, for example, cannot be compared with the risks of an open heart surgery.

Hope you can use my answer.
