  • Treatment of specific patients using intravenous sedation (conscious sedation): It is a very safe procedure, without the need of general anesthesia administration, in which specific medicines are used to cause drug-induced depression of consciousness. The patient remains in this state for the entire duration of the surgical procedure without feeling any pain. At completion the patient has no memory of the procedure. It is performed by specialized anesthesiologists in a hospital environment but without the need for hospitalization at Henry Dunant Hospital Center. It is recommended for people who cannot be subjected to local anesthesia, such as:
  • people with mobility or mental health problems
  • patients under specific treatment who are not allowed to be subjected to any kind of stress
  • patients with disabilities
  • patients with strong vomiting reflex (hyperactive gag reflex)
  • people with dental phobia – fear of the dentist or the maxillofacial surgeon
  • people who react to any intervention in their mouth
