It’s common for a person to be anxious if they undergo a subsequent oral procedure. The use of anesthesia is also responsible for this anxiety. This is despite the fact that deaths from dental sedation are very, very rare.
Oral surgeons receive in-depth training under anesthesia and can determine which anesthesia options are best for you. They also have experience in the management of complications that may result from the administration of the same medication.
Modern anesthesia technology now allows a complex oral intervention with little or no discomfort. During surgery, one or more of the following means are used to control pain and anxiety: local anesthesia, which numbs the surgical area; Hilarious gas or nitric oxide to reduce analgesia; intravenous sedation for greater relaxation; and a general anesthetic that puts you in the twilight zone (you’re awake, but you can’t remember anything).
Anesthesia is a medication that reduces the patient’s attention, discomfort, and defensive physical responses during surgery. Now, everything depends on the type of anesthesia administered to the patient: local or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia in dentistry prevents you from sleeping during the operation, even if you do not feel pain. General anesthesia will put you to sleep, and you will not remember anything once the effect is over. General anesthesia provides surgeons with a controlled and more efficient operating environment, but this is sometimes a problem because the surgeon is unaware of the patient’s physical limitations (for example, the surgeon will not know how much the mouth can open).
Some patients may experience side effects after anesthesia. Local anesthesia has more pronounced side effects than general anesthesia. Feeling cold, chills, nausea or vomiting are common side effects. You should leave enough time to remain in the recovery room after the operation until your surgeon and your anesthesiologist release you.
