Question:

My grandson 5 years old has a few holes in the teeth, but may not like to get the mask on so he can get nitrous oxide. He sits nicely up in the chair but when the mask is approaching he becomes very upset. Why can't they give him something soothing before he must have the mask on ?? I have heard other dentists do. Dentists talk about hypnosis ??? What can you do so the boy no get total fear of dentists. ??

Answer:

Dear Susanne

There are many options to treat a child who is afraid. There are also several opportunities to give the child something calming before dental treatment. The cases are completely impossible to treat in the dentist's chair, can be referred to dental treatment in general anesthesia, but there is a lot to for this to happen. I think you should take a talk with the dentists who treat your grandchild to hear what options they have and why they possibly. do not make use of them.

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.

With kind regards

The anesthetic against dental phobia

Question:

I suffer from dental phobia
much would hear whether I could get general anesthesia.

Majbrit

Answer:

Dear Majbrit

It is the absolute last resort when you choose to put a patient in the general anesthesia. There are other forms of treatment of dental phobia, blah. hypnosis, acupuncture or premedication with a sedative before each treatment. There are certain dental clinics around the country that offer general anesthesia. Of course it would be best for you in the future to be treated by a private dentist without a general anesthesia, so try and talk with your dentist about what it is you're so afraid of.

A similar question is previously answered here in the letterbox, and there you can see a short list of some dentists who offer general anesthesia.
