Anaesthesia is an artificial total sleep in which all senses are completely switched off. The anaesthetist controls the depth of anaesthesia and constantly monitors the vital functions of heartbeat, breathing and blood pressure. The indication for a full anaesthesia is very narrowly defined.
The majority of patients treated under full anesthesia are children. For very young children who are unwilling to undergo treatment, it is often the only way to achieve caries-free oral health. It is also used for adult patients with a strong dental phobia.
The anaesthesia treatment is performed in cooperation and in the presence of an experienced specialist in anaesthesia.
