Visiting the dentist without fear of pain
It is common to delay visits to the dentist, even for check-ups, for fear of suffering pain at the dentist’s office. We are aware of the uneasiness that this feeling can cause in patients. Paradoxically, the longer we delay a visit to the dentist for a possible pathology, the more likely we are to suffer pain because its severity will increase. Therefore, our dental sedation and anesthesia services in Barcelona and Ibiza have developed techniques together with our medical team to alleviate pain as much as possible in most of our treatments. We are experts in painless procedures and empathize with the patient’s needs at all times.
More than 20 years at your service with the best dental care and attention.
Not all dental clinics can provide patients with this dental sedation and anesthesia service. In our centers in Barcelona and Ibiza we have qualified personnel to perform these procedures and also the appropriate technology and means. We are pioneers in pain-free treatment in our respective geographic areas and have extensive experience in this regard. The most advisable thing to do is to get advice from our dentists and medical staff if you want to access painless treatments or if you are concerned about this part of going to the dentist. Sedation is particularly indicated in cases of:
- Odontophobia or fear of going to the dentist.
- Treatments with serious underlying diseases (heart disease, stroke, diabetes) or complex procedures.
- Patients with special care needs.
- In combined dental treatments.
- For feeling more comfortable or relaxed during interventions.
What are sedation or anesthesia treatments?
In order to determine the type of sedation or anesthesia to be used, it is necessary to take into account a series of factors. Not only the type of procedure, but also the characteristics and what the patient needs. That is the reason why we listen to our patients ‘ concerns and doubts carefully, and we propose possible solutions from this point. Occasionally, we may provide mild medication the night before the procedure to promote a better night’s rest.
Once at our facilities, the team of anesthesiologists will perform the sedation that best suits the patient’s needs. He or she will even be able to collaborate with the professionals during the process if necessary, with sedation being safe and effective to facilitate the treatment for both the patient and the surgeons. It should be remembered that our advanced technology plays a significant role in shortening most of the procedures. The steps to be followed have been carefully marked and selected so that doctors and dentists can proceed quickly, efficiently and minimally invasively, even in the most complex cases.
Conscious sedation offers greater convenience or comfort by eliminating pain (due to local anesthetic injections and manipulation) and unpleasant sensations (noises, odors, discomfort due to prolonged mouth opening and immobility, etc.). In addition, it shortens the perception of elapsed time and allows intravenous administration of drugs to reduce post-intervention discomfort.
Conscious sedation is also suitable for adolescents and children, allowing them to undergo the relevant process efficiently and smoothly without the visit to the dentist becoming traumatic.
When it comes to complex procedures, anesthesiologists are also in charge of properly advising the patient before, during and after the postoperative period. The objective is to effectively monitor how the patient is doing and also to alleviate any possible discomfort that may arise after the interventions. For our dental sedation and anesthesia area in Barcelona and Ibiza, we appoint the best medical professionals and auxiliary team, focused on recovering your oral health, but also to make you feel comfortable and cared for in our clinics.
