Anesthesia options provided at Save on Medical partner Clinics

Do you know that around 60% of adults experience anxiety and fear during their dental treatment?  What’s even worse is that anxiety can delay getting treatment done which can make your dental problems worse in the long run.

Save on Medical Tourism partner clinics have years of experience managing irrational fears related to anxiety due to dental procedures and are equipped to help you overcome this problem. Our focus is to look after our clients holistically and to ensure their needs are addressed and they are comfortable during  their dental procedure.

To control pain, our clinics offer various anesthesia options that can be implemented  during surgery and they can  include local anesthesia which is the most common option. Our dental specialist will talk to you about which option is best for you. Medications can be used alone or combined for better effect and this can be individualized for a safe and successful outcome.

The type of anesthetics used also depends on the age of the person, health condition, length of the procedure, and any negative reactions to anesthetics in the past. Anesthetics work in different ways depending on what’s used.

Local anesthesia  is used for simpler procedures like a cavity filling, which requires a shorter time to complete and is generally less complicated. This is the most common used type of  anesthesia in dental procedures. Most local anesthetics take effect quickly (within 10 minutes) and last 30 to 60 minutes.

The aim of sedation is to enable the patient to remain still during the procedure or help the patient to relax. There are different levels of sedation and you might be fully conscious and able to respond to commands, semiconscious, or barely conscious.

The medication might be given orally (tablet or liquid), inhaled via mask, given intramuscularly into your muscle (IM). Please note due to complications and risks associated with general anesthesia our clinics do not provide this option as part of their service offering.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriate qualified practitioner.
