Sedation and General Anesthesia

What is Dental Treatment with Sedation?

Sedation therapy is a dental treatment method that reduces anxiety or discomfort related to dental procedures and makes dental treatment more comfortable. Before the sedation treatment, sometimes oral drugs and sometimes anesthetic drugs given by injection make the patient go into a semi-sleep state.

What is Dental Treatment with General Anesthesia?

General anesthesia can be preferred for pediatric or adult patients who have dentist phobia, who cannot provide treatment comfort, and in many surgical operations where local anesthesia will be insufficient.

What is the Difference Between Sedation and General Anesthesia?

There are similarities as well as differences between dental treatment with sedation and general anesthesia.

In dental treatment with sedation,

  • Patients are half asleep.
  • The patient is not completely unconscious.
  • He can hear sounds coming from outside.
  • Aches, pains and pain that may occur during dental treatment are prevented.
  • The patient can breathe on his own.

In dental treatment with general anesthesia,

  • The patient is in full sleep.
  • The patient is completely unconscious.
  • He cannot hear outside sounds.
  • Aches, pains and pain that may occur during dental treatment are prevented.
