General Anaesthesia and Sedation in Children's Dentistry
Why is general anaesthesia used for children?
The general anaesthesia is used for children in situations where the children do not manage to collaborate with the pediatric dentist because of the young age or the complications of the intervention require this total sedation to do the dental treatment.
How does general anaesthesia work?
In dentistry, there are two options:
- Local anaesthesia – infiltration administered as an injection in clinical situations such as extraction of the molar/dental milk without mobility, complication requiring removal/extraction of inflamed or infected pulp
- Topical anaesthesia – anaesthetic spray or gels administered before local anaesthesia in the form of infiltration
What is oral sedation?
This sedation technique involves inhalation of nitrogen peroxide by applying a nasal mask throughout the medical procedure while the child is relaxed and conscious.
Upon completion of the dental treatment, the patient recovers from the state of conscious sedation by inhaling oxygen.
Inhalation is recommended as an alternative to combat anxiety and dental analgesia in very anxious patients requiring emergency dental treatment.
