A common problem for people who want dental implants is anesthesia. In this sense, there are several categories of patients, from those in good health, but afraid of pain, to those with health problems that are banned from certain types of anesthesia.
Regardless of your particular case, at the Dr. Nassar implantology clinic you can benefit from all the range of anesthetics associated with the dental implant.
TYPES OF ANESTHESIA
There are 4 types of anesthesia or procedures to calm the patient and painless insertion of the implant.
- The procedure is applied by a certified dentist or an accredited psychologist, during and in support of the painless dental implant.
- Medical hypnosis is all the more effective the more permissive the patient's "openness".
- In hypnosis it is necessary for the patient to cooperate and "let himself be led" by the doctor, so that he realizes that the pain is just a sensation that he can observe and control.
- The method can be used in conjunction with other types of anesthesia as an adjuvant.
Inhalation with hilar gas
- The procedure allows the patient to be sedated by inspiration of NO2 gas.
- NO2 or hilar gas is used as an anxiolytic and analgesic in surgery, gynecology and dentistry.
- The inert gas is administered through a mask, along with oxygen and is eliminated from the body exactly as it enters.
- NO2 anesthesia can be used in conjunction with other types of anesthesia as an adjuvant.
- The procedure allows the anesthesia of the area where the implant is inserted.
- It is performed by an injection in the gum, as in the usual procedures for treating teeth (eg: canal treatments).
- In about 2-3 minutes after injection, the patient has a completely numb area; does not feel pain during implant insertion.
- After about 20-30 minutes from insertion, the pain gradually returns but is stopped with painkillers.
- The procedure partially puts the patient to sleep; he is semi-conscious and sometimes even cooperative.
- It is performed by the anesthetist by an intravenous injection, applied to the arm.
- After inserting the implants, the patient regains full consciousness and can go home.
- A few hours after the implant, the pain begins to return, but is stopped by painkillers.
THE COST OF ANESTHESIA FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
- The cost of anesthesia for one or more dental implants through the methods of hypnosis, inhalation and local anesthesia is free and included in the final price of the operation.
- The cost of intravenous anesthesia is not included in the final price of the operation.
