Dentophobia, a panic-based fear of dental treatment, affects a wide range of Patients. In many cases it is caused by the fear of pain that may occur during and after the dental treatment. In our offices we put the Patients’ comfort as a priority, trying to make them familiar with the atmosphere and the treatment itself. Modern methods of dental anaesthesia are extremely helpful in this respect.
WHAT IS DENTAL ANAESTHESIA?
Dental anaesthesia consists of administering a substance to the patient which blocks the conduction of pain impulses. In the case of local anaesthetics, the impulses are blocked only in a selected area of the body, and the applied substance does not affect the Patient’s consciousness or brain functions. General anaesthesia, or narcosis, has a slightly different effect. It results in a temporary, reversible loss of consciousness. In a patient under anaesthesia, the functions of the central nervous system are inhibited, but the functioning of the centres responsible for the most important vital functions is maintained.
The forms of dental anaesthesia used in our offices are completely safe for the Patient.
TYPES OF DENTAL ANAESTHESIA USED
In our offices we treat without pain, thanks to the use of:
- general anaesthesia,
- computer anaesthesia,
- anaesthesia with laughing gas (nitrous oxide).
