The sedation dampens the function of the central nervous system and turns off consciousness partially or completely.

Analgesic sedation is also known as twilight sleep, deep sleep, sleep anesthesia, partial anesthesia or small anesthesia. It is based on a combination of drugs Analgesics and sedatives (Painkillers and sedatives) that have a Venous catheter are fed.

Before inserting the venous catheter, the skin is coated with an anesthetic ointment so that the puncture is not felt at all.

An alternative to classic analgesic sedation is oral sedatives before treatment.

Sedation by general anesthesia

During treatment under general anesthesia at the dentist, the patient does not feel anything - he is busy and is under the supervision of an anesthetist artificially ventilated. The anesthetic is also here via one Venous catheter fed.

Can the elderly be sedated?

In principle, sedation is possible into old age. It is always necessary to weigh up in each individual case what the best solution is, given the general condition of the patient and the expected cardiovascular stress caused by the treatment and the sedation.

We often recommend awake sedation to older patients, as it is gentler and less risky than general anesthesia.

How does sedation work at the dentist?

Before each sedation, the dentist and the anesthetist will explain the process in detail and answer the patient's questions. In addition, they check the general health condition and ask about possible risk factors (medication intake, intolerance, previous illnesses, etc.).

On the day of the treatment itself, the procedure is as follows:
