Dental implantology under general anesthesia

Dental implantology is a surgical procedure and like all other surgeries has to be performed under careful supervision of experts and surgeons. Each of the stages has to be monitored so that no complications arise during the process. Dental implants also require some form of anesthesia so that discomfort or pain is not a part of the procedure and the patient wakes up feeling happy and fresh. This can be local anesthesia or intravenous sedation during the surgery. You can opt for dental implantology under general anesthesia depending on your case, the duration of the surgery and your anxiety. You have to be comfortable during the procedure for it to be successful and, it is your decision to choose the form of anesthesia to be used. You can discuss in details the pros and cons of each of these with your surgeon.

If the dental implant surgery requires only about a few hours or only one or two implants are to be placed, local anesthesia can suffice in most cases. Here the part where the implant is about to take place is numbed so that you do not feel any pain during the procedure but, you will be aware and conscious of everything that’s happening around you. This is simpler than dental implantology under general anesthesia because its effects wear off quickly. Often for extractions and inconsequential implants local anesthesia is a better and more cost-effective option. However, if the surgery is a little more complicated, if quite a few teeth have to be replaced or fixed using implants, then a stronger sedative can be used. Your doctor or surgeon can guide you better in decision making.

You can choose conscious sedation or IV sedation during your surgical procedure which is stronger than local anesthesia. You will be aware of the proceedings but the sedation will numb your entire body so that you will be in a semi-conscious stage. Your medical history too is a deciding factor when it comes to choosing between local anesthesia and dental implantology under general anesthesia. The doctor will first carefully check your medical records and see whether there are any chances of complications. Also many patients suffer from anxiety disorder and therefore a stronger sedative can be better where they can relax during the surgery. Preplanning is the key here to avoid any undue event during the surgery.

If a case is risky or requires long hours, dental implantology under general anesthesia can be the preferred route. A specialized anesthetist will be responsible for regulating the anesthesia dose so that the surgery goes smoothly. Though modern anesthesia does not have much after-effects, nausea or headache are common because the sedative takes about a day to wear off completely. However, it is far from risky and if you choose experienced surgeon and good medical facility the chances of success with dental implants is ensured. During your consultation discuss all the points; ask questions about implants so that you are prepared for the surgery. Your mirror is waiting to smile at you.

Dental implantology in one day

Loss of teeth or teeth damage is not just a medical problem, many find it embarrassing and hesitate to smile or laugh in public. There are traditional dental solutions such as dentures or bridges but none of these are long lasting and require a lot of maintenance. A better alternative is dental implantology which is more popular today because the procedure has a high success rate, it is safe and can prove to be a permanent solution that can last you a lifetime. The entire procedure usually takes a few sittings spread over a couple of weeks and that depends on the number of teeth implants. However, medical science has advanced so much so that today dental implantology within one single day can be achieved with a little preplanning. Dental implants, though effective, used to be time consuming because the process involved tooth examination, scheduling appointments for implants and giving it a few months before restorative supports could be installed. Making the rounds of dentist’s chamber every other day can be a hassle and it also proved to be expensive. But now, dental implantology in one day proves to be a better option because only in one sitting healthy teeth will be yours and that too for the lifetime. Once you consult the doctor about dental implants, the specialist and the team would use advanced 3D CT scan and virtual software to design the implantology procedure. The accurate mapping of the implants and restoration before the scheduled session saves up on time.The highly sophisticated 3D imaging technology coupled with a technique called ‘all on four,’ makes it easy and convenient to replace lost tooth in no time. ‘All on four’ means the entire set of teeth can be placed in the jaw bone using only 4 implants and unlike dentures that are uncomfortable and limiting in scope, the implants are just like normal teeth. You can brush, floss and eat all you like without having to fear that it may come off. Dental implantology in one day sounds nothing less than a medical miracle. What used to take about a few months to almost a year can now be done in less than 4 hours. The bridges are placed on the 4 implants that are tactfully inserted within the jaw bone.The placement and setting of the dentures into the jaw bone is the real challenge and the success of implants depends on this but, trained dental implant specialists can do this with little chances of failure. An efficient dental implant team under one roof is a great advantage because unlike traditional implants that required you to visit the surgeon, the dental lab for CT scan, the dental implantology specialist and finally the prosthodontist, the more modern approach is all-encompassing and saves on both time and money. The team of specialists will be with you since the day of consultation to the day of the implant surgery and will assist you during post-surgery checkups to see that you are recovering well. Advancement in medical facility and increased expertise of the specialists have both made dental implantology in one day an easy possibility.

Dental Implantology in Tel Aviv

When looking for a professional, we naturally prefer the one who renders services close to our residence. However, this is not necessary the case in the field of medicine, including dentistry. Very often, when talking about complex treatment, the major consideration will not necessarily be the geographic vicinity, but the level of the clinic’s professionalism and its fields of expertise. For examples, there are cases, which require complex dental implantology, such as dental implantology for patients inflicted with lack of bone, or patients who have a thin bone, on which it is impossible to transplant directly dental implants. An additional example is performing dental implantology under general anesthesia, a procedure requiring the presence of an anesthesiologist in addition to the dentist carrying out the implantology itself.

It is important to know that complex dental care often require a qualification in the field of oral surgery, and not every dentist has this knowledge, the training and the experience that ensure the best results.

There is no dispute that such a situation may lead to a waste of time, financial costs and considerable distress for the patient.

The importance of the geographic vicinity in selecting a dentist will be lower also with people suffering fear of dental care of have dental anxiety.
