We can offer – in conjunction with our anesthesiologist team – the option of general anaesthesia as well, so that one can be getting put to sleep at the dentist to have a pleasant time during treatment, without even noticing what is happening. We are specialized in treatments conducted in general anaesthesia, therefore many tremulous patients choose us consciously as we have the best dentists for nervous patiens. We are ready to provide you with detailed information on this method.
We have been working for many years on an exclusive basis with the team of Dr. Béla Szabó, the head anaesthetist of the Military Hospital in Budapest who has a more than 30-year experience.
At Evergreen Dental, almost exclusively in Budapest, we are specialized on administering dental treatments and oral surgery while the patient is under general anaesthesia as the conditions are met on a high level in accordance with the European standards at our clinic. The patient can spend the time after the intervention, uniquely, in the comfort of the recovery room where she or he can even be with relatives.
Anaesthesia is provided by a highly trained team of specialists. The anaesthesia is provided with intravenous drugs. Along that the anaesthesiologist administers painkillers and sedatives. To achieve complete painlessness, the dentist applies local anaesthesia at the area of the procedure. The anesthesiology team is present during the whole operation and supervises the procedure during anaesthesia. After the dentist is done with the treatment, the anesthesiologist suspends the anaesthesia, which results in your awakening in a few minutes. A calm awakening after the procedure is guaranteed by the waking room, furnished for this purpose, where you can be together with your relatives. If you have any other questions regarding general anaesthesia, don’t hesitate to as the specialists at Evergreen Dental. We will answer all of your question!
Which dental treatments can be done in general anaesthesia?
Naturally, our dentists provide an all-round counseling, therefore you can decide together with your doctor during the planning phase of the treatment whether you wish to be treated under sedation.
After a treatment in general you will be able to recover in the waking room for as long as needed. Both the surgery and the waking room meet the requirements for hospitals allowing a comfortable and safe treatment and recovery.
Why is General anaesthesia better than sedation?
During sedation the patient remains awake and can be talked to, just will have no memories. Sedation is performed with gas through the mouth and that is its disadvantage in dentistry where the work is taking place in the mouth and therefore the tube has to be put in and taken out constantly.
During general anaesthesia the breathing channels remain free during the entire treatment.
What preparation is needed for general anaesthesia?
Previously a blood test and EKG measurements are needed by the domestic GP. Also an anamnesis curves has to be filled out at early stage to see whether they are any contraindications excluding the possibility of the treatment under general anaesthesia.
When can I leave the clinic after a general anaesthesia?
After the treatment the patient remains in the recovery room as long as needed in a calm ambience. We observe the patient permanently without disturbing and also family members or company have access. The recovery room is designed accordingly. When leaving the clinic our driver always takes the patient to the place of accommodation and makes sure that the patients arrives in the room safely.
When is it not possible to have a general anaesthesia?
The following factors exclude the possibility of a general anaesthesia:
- Significant heart or circulation problems
- Significant breath problems
- Enzyme illnesses
At illnesses influencing the general anaesthesia treatment we always contact your general doctor. In case of fever a general anaesthesia can’t take place.
What is the cost of general anaesthesia?
The total cost of general anaesthesia depends on the amount of hours needed for the treatment.
Each hour costs $328 at Evergreen Dental clinic.
The advantages of general anaesthesia
Much faster, more work can be done during one treatment (e.g. extractions, bone graft and implantation in one session)
Therefore the overall treatment time can be shortened as healing time only applies once
Very comfortable as the patient is sleeping during the treatment
It doesn’t hurt and the patient doesn’t remember anything therefore no post-traumatic problems can occur
