Treatment in a dream. Medical sleep. Sedation at the Sa-Nata clinic.

Treatment in a dream. Medical sleep. Sedation at the Sa-Nata clinic.

Modern dentistry never ceases to develop and amaze. We now live in a developed and technological world, so most of us understand that we should not be afraid of pain in many procedures. After all, there is a huge choice of methods of anesthesia, and modern dentistry is aimed at organizing maximum comfort for its patient. So the network of dental clinics “Sa-Nata” takes maximum care of its patient and our task is not only to provide a high and professional level of dental quality services, but also to create all conditions for maximum comfortable treatment and manipulation.

Patients are all individual and we would like the fear and fear of this or that procedure not to become an obstacle to the realization of the dream of a healthy and beautiful smile. It is very important for us that you leave the office of the Sa-Nata clinic with a smile and a great mood. The clinical situations of patients are very diverse and sometimes you have to resort to quite serious operations. In order not to injure the psyche and carry out the procedure comfortably, the Sa-Nata network of clinics provides such a service as treatment under sedation (treatment in a dream). There are also patients who are individually indicated for treatment with sedation and without it, treatment is impossible.

Dental treatment under sedation is a modern and safe method of treating a patient in a dream by intravenous injection of a special sedative drug, which allows for painless dental treatment or surgery, without anxiety and fear. The introduction of the patient into drug-induced sleep is carried out under the full control of the anesthetist and a special apparatus that controls the pulse, pressure and general condition of the patient in the process of staying in superficial sleep. This method is also applicable and safe for children.

Sedation in the clinic "Sa-Nata" is carried out intravenously with the use of the drug "Propofol". Propofol is a unique drug for effective and safe anesthesia and is suitable for procedures lasting more than 4 hours.

The principle of treatment under sedation is that the patient falls asleep, wakes up, and the treatment is already completed without anxiety, fear and pain. Intravenous sedation using Propofol has been tested by time and experience. More than 100 million operations have been performed with it, and for the development of the drug, John Glen received the Lasker Prize for the safest and most effective means for intravenous sedation.

  • Smooth introduction of the patient into quality sleep, identical to physiological sleep. Such a dream differs only in that the patient does not dream. But this is only a “plus”, because some dreams can cause anxiety and anxiety.
  • Comfortable and soft exit from the state of sleep. An adult patient or a child eventually wakes up after the procedure completely rested, in a good mood, without feeling any discomfort, nausea or headache. The patient wakes up on his own within 15 minutes after the end of the manipulation.
  • Rapid falling asleep. Sleep occurs within 30-40 seconds after the drug is administered intravenously to the patient.
  • Reliability and safety - does not cause allergic reactions (with the exception of allergies to chicken protein). Propofol can be used for pediatric sedation because it does not cause side effects. The patient's breathing during such drug sleep is independent and even. "Propofol" is a non-toxic drug and, most importantly, it is quickly excreted from the body. Also, the sedative drug does not affect the internal organs of a person.
  • The uniqueness and versatility of the drug. The basis of propofol is a fat emulsion that helps to bind and remove toxins from the body. Due to its special structure, it does not increase blood pressure and does not cause palpitations. Suitable for frequent use in dentistry and long medication sleep, while not adversely affecting the body in both adults and children. And the range of action of the drug allows you to select the dosage individually and clearly control the consciousness and depth of sedation of the patient.

What dental procedures can be performed under sedation?

What dental procedures can be performed under sedation?
  • Comprehensive treatment - when it is necessary to do several procedures at once in one visit with the participation of several specialists of different directions at once (for example, complex dental treatment + installation of implants).
  • Surgical procedures: extraction of teeth, implantation of several teeth at once, operations on the gums (plasty), flap operations, sinus lift and so on.
  • Dental manipulations, which in their duration take more than 2 hours.
  • Long-term treatment and operations for children: surgery, gum/tongue/lip surgery and so on. Sedation with a propofol is allowed to be carried out by children from the age of 3 years.

How does sedation take place - the introduction of the patient into a state of sleep?

  • Before starting treatment under sedation, the patient must undergo a full examination and preliminary consultation. The specialist conducts a detailed X-ray diagnostics, discusses all the points and nuances with the patient. Certain tests may be required on an individual basis.
  • The process takes place in a specially equipped dental office and under the full control of an individual specialist - an anesthesiologist. A special anesthetic monitoring is installed in the office to monitor the patient's vital functions, as well as a special BIS-monitoring device for the depth of sedation and maintaining the optimal dosage of the injected sedative - Propofol. This is necessary so that the state of superficial sleep is sufficient, but at the same time not excessive. The anesthesiologist selects the dose of a sedative for the patient based on his individual characteristics of the organism.
  • Administering an intravenous injection of a sedative to a patient. The patient fully falls asleep within 35-40 seconds after the injection. If the patient is a child who is very worried and afraid of injections, the injection site is anesthetized with a special gel before injection. In addition, children's specialists work for us, who skillfully and professionally distract the child in such a way that he does not even notice that the injection has already been given. Everything is very well thought out.
  • Dental treatment or surgery. During the procedures performed, the anesthesiologist controls the pulse, heartbeat of the patient and all other processes that show the general condition of the patient on the monitors of special equipment. In the process of manipulations, a whole team of specialists works in the office: for example, an implant surgeon, 1-2 assistants and an anesthesiologist.
  • Exit from medication sleep. After the dental procedure is over, the anesthetist stops the sedative. After that, the patient wakes up on his own within 10-15 minutes. If the patient is a child, the awakening time may be slightly longer. There are cases that after the cessation of the sedative, the drug-induced sleep of the child smoothly turns into normal sleep. In this case, the child should not be awakened, he is either left in the office under the supervision of a specialist, or moved to a recreation area under the supervision of his parents in order to wait for a natural and independent awakening.

Preparing for medical sleep:

  • 1-2 weeks before the procedure, you should refrain from crowded places so as not to get sick, as the patient must be healthy during the procedure.
