Treatment under modern general anesthesia

General anesthesia

Treatment under modern general anesthesia is much more safer than a treatment with a simple injection anesthesia, because the medicamentation dose and the patient health status are always monitored by professional anesthesiologist team (best in Latvia) in the real time.

 

We use the uniqe methodes of dental treatments for deciduous teeth:

  • deciduous teeth root canal treatment
  • deciduous front teeth restoration
  • space maintainer placement if tooth was lost
  • metal crowns and individual ceramic crowns placement
  • deciduous front teeth prosthetics

We struggle to safe every possible child’s tooth unlike many others dental surgeries, because we realize all the possible consequences:

  • incorrect jaws growth
  • the malocclusion
  • speech development problems
  • psychological problems
 
 
In what cases should children be treated under general anesthesia

   1. Age up to 3 years.

Given the early age, many children can not sit still in the chair while being treated, therefore it is difficult to establish a psychological contact with the child and give an effective treatment.

   2. Large amount of damaged teeth.

Even children with positive attitude towards the dentist can run out of patience while they're being treated.

Often after the first successful visits, the positive attitude disappears and the child can refuse treatment.

   3. Children with special needs.

Children with special needs or allergic reactions to traditional anesthesia or with neurological diseases.

   4. Child's fear of treatment leading to a panics attack.

 

The most common source of fear in a child appears after a prior negative treatment experience.

Worst case scenario is to hold the child in the chair against his own will and do the treatment, which our team will not do.

Usually, negative memories like these can stick with the child forever. There are known cases when children can start to develop a stutter because of "treatments" like these.

We are against violent treatments, such as described above.

 

Of course, our doctors will always try to establish positive connection with the child, therefore we have our special "Zobu fejas" school running in our clinic. 

But there are cases when we simply can not deal without the presence of anesthesia.

 

How to sign up for treatment under general anesthesia

To schedule time, date and treatment under general anesthesia you will need a consultation with an anesthetist and dentist who will examine the child.

The consultation is very important not only for the child, but their parents, since it is possible to get very important answers about anesthesia and the planned treatment from certified professionals.

What you need to take to the consultation:

   2. An allowance from family doctor.

  The price for anesthetics is €€ 220. Every next hour is €€ 100.

Preparing for anesthesia
   1. Prevention of colds.
 
If the child has a runny nose, cough or temperature, then the narcosis will be canceled.
Therefore a week before treatment, we recommend isolating the child from contact with other children in the children's garden, school, etc., especially during the autumn-spring period.
 
   2. Do not eat or drink for 4 hours before anesthesia.
 
It is necessary to strictly monitor that the child would not be able to eat even the smallest candy, biscuits left in their pockets, clothes, etc. It is very important!
The child should clean his/her teeth four hours before anesthesia.
 
   3. Girls are not advised to have their nails polished and no rigid hair buckles should also be used.
