Extraction of teeth under general anesthesia
The extraction of teeth under general anesthesia is accompanied by a complete disconnection of consciousness. Anesthesia is used only by specially equipped dental clinics. Anesthesia can give serious complications, so if you just want to feel nothing, think carefully. Anesthesia is not recommended for the treatment of caries - there certainly can be treated with local anesthesia. The exception is when the patient is allergic to all local anesthetics, which is very rare. Pregnant women also can not be given general anesthesia, as well as patients with cardiovascular pathology.
In addition, the tube through which the patient distracts, clutters the oral cavity.
But if you need to remove several teeth, it is general anesthesia that can save you time and reduce stress levels. If you need to remove a lot of teeth at once - removing the teeth under general anesthesia for you.
General anesthesia is suitable for patients with intellectual disabilities and organic brain lesions.

Wisdom tooth extraction under anesthesia
Removing the wisdom tooth under anesthesia will save you from fear. If you need to remove four wisdom teeth at once, you can choose general anesthesia. Removal of a wisdom tooth under anesthesia is shown in complex cases, for example, when it lies in the jaw horizontally or not cut, and it must be extracted from the jaw in parts.
You need to follow such rules if you decide to remove the tooth under general anesthesia:
- 24 hours prior to removal, alcohol should be discarded.
- The clinic needs to come hungry, do not eat anything 4 hours before surgery and do not drink.
- After removing the tooth under anesthesia, you need to go to bed.
- You need to come to the clinic with a person who will take you home after the operation. Of course, in an hour you can walk down the street, but your attention will be scattered. On this day you can not drive.
Before the operation, each patient is made an electrocardiogram, the pressure is measured.
After general anesthesia, consciousness returns to you smoothly and slowly, for half an hour. The feeling of fatigue remains until the end of the day, so you will not be able to go to work on that day. Some clinics use not mask anesthesia, but sedation, or hypnotics. During sedation, consciousness is clouded, but persists. When you wake up, you do not remember anything - no pain and crackling of the extracted tooth.
