Types of anesthesia used for dental treatment/ dental implants

There are 3 types of anesthesia which can be used for dental/dental implant procedures:

Local Anesthesia:
This is the traditional method. The dentist gives an injection of a medicine called a ‘local anesthetic’ into the mouth which will numb the area where the treatment is being done. There is no effect on other parts of the body such as dizziness, or drowsiness. That  is why its called ‘local’.

Most procedures like fillings, root canal treatment, extractions, placement of dental implants can be done comfortably with local anesthesia 

Local Anesthesia plus sedation: When the patient is a bit anxious, or the treatment is going to take longer than 1 hour, your surgeon may opt for sedation along with local anesthesia. Sedation makes you drowsy, and you become less anxious, and the procedure can be completed comfortably.

Sedation can be with laughing gas or usually intravenous. Sedation may be administered by the operating surgeon in some cases, or an anaesthesiologist in most cases. The dental clinic needs to be fully equipped with emergency

 This is generally done in cases of wisdom teeth surgery, multiple dental implants or similar jaw surgery procedure.

General Anesthesia: General anesthesia is a type of anesthesia which is most commonly used for most surgical operations. The patient is unconscious during the procedure, and gains consciousness after the procedure is completed. General anesthesia is usually reserved for very long and complex procedures. This process cannot be done in the routine dental office, it needs to be done in a hospital. And it is administered by an anesthesiologist.

General anesthesia  is generally used in facial surgery, or in child patients, mentally retarded patients, or very anxious/ nervous patients.

Dr Madan’s final comments: Our multispecialty dental hospital has the proper infrastructure and facilities to comfortably and safely administer any of these types of anesthesia.
