Anaesthesia means loss of sensation. Tooth extraction and wisdom teeth removal surgery may be carried out using local or general anaesthesia. the procedures can also be done with or without help of sedation.
Local Anaesthesia is a nerve block and numbs the part of the body where the procedure is to be performed. It is done in the clinic and you are awake and free of pain. It is advisable to have a normal meal before wisdom teeth removal surgery under local anaesthetic.
General Anaesthesia is performed at Hospitals equipped with the safest and latest dental and medical technology for tooth extraction and wisdom teeth removal surgery. General anaesthesia is generally considered as being put to sleep. However this is not true. Rather the anaesthetist puts the patient in a state of carefully controlled unconsciousness for the duration of the oral surgery or wisdom teeth removal. This is achieved and mantained by drugs with a mix of gases. While you remain unaware of what is happening around you, the Anaesthetist monitors your condition closely and constantly adjusts the level of anaesthesia during the oral surgery or tooth extraction.
IV Sedation is usually performed in the clinic and patients are usually sedated by the anaethetist in the dental chair. IV sedation or so caled sleep dentistry induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. Drugs used for IV sedation produce partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first in administered until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to go very quickly and you will not remembered much of what happened. Most of patients remember nothing at all. So it may, indeed, appear as if you were “asleep” during the procedure.
Penthrox Sedation is an alternative to General Anaesthesia and IV sedation and can provide pain and anxiety relief during tooth extraction and wisdom teeth removal surgery. Penthrox is a combination of an inhaler device and a pharmaceutical agent that has extremely safe record and has been used in Australia for over 30 years by healthcare professionals. Penthrox will provide you with pain relief while at the same time making you feel relaxed and more comfortable during the procedure.
