Anaesthesia – sleep through the pain
If several little teeth are diseased, depending on the individual case, one of the best and most gentle methods of thorough and lasting treatment is to take care of everything in one go under anaesthesia. This is because complete dental restoration would be more stressful for the child than general anaesthesia. Our paediatric dental practice is perfectly equipped for paediatric dental treatments under anaesthesia. An experienced anaesthetist closely monitors your child throughout the treatment and until your child is ready to go home. While he or she sleeps peacefully through the unpleasant parts.
If we recommend your child is treated under anaesthesia, we will quietly discuss all the details of the treatment with you beforehand. It is important that your child does not eat anything before the appointment. Once the anaesthetic is administered, it only takes a few minutes for your child to fall into a deep sleep. Parents remain with their child up until this point and may return to their child’s side straight after the procedure. This means you are right there when your child wakes up after a 1 to 2-hour nap in a cosy little bed in a private room.
When we are working with anaesthesia, we on principle treat all our patient’s teeth to restore them to good dental health. So that this remains the case and no other treatments are needed, we recommend regular check-ups and prophylaxis appointments.
