What are the different types of dental anesthesia?

At Carrefour Dentaire of Montreal, we practice 2 types of dental anesthesia:

  • Local anesthesia is the anesthesia most commonly used by dentists. It numbs the area that needs to undergo surgery or dental surgery. For your comfort, our dentists will apply an anesthetic gel to your gums before proceeding to the local anesthesia.
  • Conscious sedation is administered intravenously only by certified dentists and must be paired with local anesthesia. You will remain conscious during dental treatments but you will lose the notion of duration and difficulty. You will be totally soothed.

How to prepare for treatments under general anesthesia or conscious sedation?

Before conscious sedation treatments, you are asked to show up on an empty stomach, that is to say not having eaten or drinking 8 hours before the procedure. A person will have to drive you back after the surgery. We recommend that you do not plan any activities following your anesthesia. In some cases, this indication will be extended overnight. Depending on the care provided, we may recommend a particular diet. In all cases, this information will be given to you during the preliminary interview with our maxillofacial surgeon.
