Dental implantology in one day has been proved as an effective and successful method with very high success rates; with general anesthesia, it is possible to concentrate most of the treatments in one day.
“It is possible to wake up to a new quality of life”.
A rapid treatment, minimal pain, shortening the treatment time from a year to only one day and it is possible to make all the implants also in one day.
The Basal Implantology Center offers dental treatments, including dental implantology under general anesthesia, with close supervision of the Center’s medical staff. Among the advantage of dental implantology under general anesthesia are:
Dental implantology under general anesthesia allows the patients to wake up to a new quality of life, with minimum pains and side effects.
Thanks to the treatment under general anesthesia, it is often possible to perform complex treatment and implantology of numerous implants in one day, a treatment that would otherwise require several stages up to its completion.
Dental treatments and implantology under anesthesia is also suitable in cases in which the patient suffers from dental care anxiety, professionally called “Dental Anxiety” or “Dental Fear”.
The order of the treatment procedure under general anesthesia is in most cases as follows:
- Our experts conduct a comprehensive and orderly examination of the patient.
- Our team of experts prepares a full treatment plan including the approval of the anesthesiologist, who is present throughout the surgery. Thus, the doctor can easily carry out the entire treatment without any interference.
- At the end of the treatment, the patient remains for a couple of hours at the recovery room, under close supervision of the medical staff.

The field of anesthesia in dentistry has developed significantly in recent years and there are currently various possible anesthesia methods. Selecting the anesthesia substance and its dosage is made according to several factors such as the type of treatment, the patient’s health condition, his/her age and level of anxiety.
Common types of anesthesia during dental implantology:
Injecting local anesthesia causes numbness only where the injection was given in the patient’s mouth and its close vicinity. The injection is given with a thin needle and is therefore not particularly painful. However, it is possible to reduce the pain even more by slow injection of the substance or by applying an anesthetic substance onto the spot prior to giving the injection. The injection’s effect is felt within a couple of minutes, and wears off completely a few hours after the treatment. Such local anesthesia is common during dental treatments, and is performed by the dentist himself/herself according to his/her discretion.
In this method anesthetic substances are given, causing sedation at varying levels depending on the drugs’ dosage. Prior to carrying out the sedation, a preliminary examination of the patient is performed in order to ensure that he/she are fit to undergo the treatment. An anesthesiologist, who underwent special training in the field, performs the sedation procedure, when in most cases there are two doctors and a nurse present in the room in case any complications occur and prompt treatment is required. In the course of the treatment and during the recovery phase, the patient’s condition is monitored in order to ensure normal oxygen levels and heartbeat.
Dental implantology under general anesthesia
Prior to general anesthesia, the patient enters deep sedation. The anesthetic substances cause change in the patient’s conscious state and relaxation of his/her body muscles, thus he/she does not feel anything during the treatment, feels no pain and does not react to external stimuli.
As in the case of sedation, an anesthesiologist performs the general anesthesia, following a preliminary diagnosis, and in the course of the treatment two doctors and a nurse are present in the treatment room. Furthermore, the patient’s condition is closely monitored during and after the treatment. The effects of the general anesthesia wear off several hours after the treatment.
In recent years, we are witnessing a trend of a more extensive use of general anesthesia than in the past, mainly during complex dental care, such as bone transplantation or a single-day dental implantology, i.e. a treatment in which a large number of teeth are implanted. In addition, dental implantology under general anesthesia is performed when the patient suffers great anxiety of dental care. Many patients fear dental care mainly because of the pain they anticipate would be involved in it. The use of anesthesia during dental care in general, including dental implantology, may help cope with the fear and the pains, which sometimes accompany the treatments. The option of dental implantology under general anesthesia allows many people suffering from dental anxiety to undergo the procedure instead of postponing it and experiencing deterioration in their health condition and their quality of life. Sometimes, the patient’s anxiety may hinder the doctor in managing the medical procedure properly and end it as quickly as possible, and in this respect, anesthesia can also help prevent such a situation.
Important to know
Each patient is entitled to ask the doctor for any dental care under anesthesia. The doctor must explain to the patients the advantages and the disadvantages, the possible risks and complications of the procedure.
The final decision whether to have the treatment under anesthesia is the patient’s, assuming that he/she has been examined and found fit to undergo the procedure. In complex treatments, the decision regarding the anesthesia method, the type of substance, the dosage etc. is the doctor’s decision, while considering the patient’s desire.
