Sedation Dentistry

In most cases we treat children’s teeth at Dubnova’s Clinic “STOMATOLOGiYA” in Kiev quickly and almost painlessly, because anatomical characteristics of baby teeth, where pulp is not so sensitive, favour it. As do our specialists’ professionalism, benevolence, and knowledge of children’s psychology. They have been working with children of various ages for many years. However, in some cases, a dentist might recommend to treat children’s teeth under sedation. Our Clinic has equipment that makes sedation treatment of children’s teeth possible. In his interview, Oleg L. Kovnatskiy, Pediatric Dentist for Dubnova’s Clinic “STOMATOLOGiYA”, answers parents’ questions about sedation treatment of children’s teeth (in medical sleep):

Когда медикаментозный сон может быть рекомендован детям?

  • What is sedation (medical sleep)?
  • When might sedation (medical sleep) be recommended to children?
  • Can sedation (medical sleep) harm a child?
  • How safe is sedation (medical sleep) for children?
  • What medical examinations need to be done, before a child can have treatment under sedation (in medical sleep)?
  • Is any preparation for a child necessary for sedation (sleep) dental treatment?
  • What is the procedure for sedation (sleep) dental treatment?
  • How long can you go without a visit to a dentist after such treatment?

Безопасен медикаментозный сон для ребенка?

medson 1 300x259 - Sedation DentistryЗа безопасность ребенка в условиях медикаментозного сна у нас в клинике отвечает анестезиологическая бригада. Например, наша клиника – единственная стоматологическая клиника в Украине, где используется самая современная наркозная станция, которая дает возможность мониторинга всех жизненно важных функций организма. Мы можем быстро и должным образом реагировать на любые изменения состояния пациента, чтобы лечение было максимально безопасным и эффективным. Также у нас есть BIS-мониторинг, который определяет глубину седации и ребенок будет иметь лишь поверхностный сон, что делает невозможным осложнения в плане передозировки препаратов.

Мы называем эту процедуру лечением «во сне», или глубокой седацией, тем самым подчеркивая его отличие от традиционного медицинского наркоза. Препараты севофлуран или пропофол, которые мы используем, относятся к так называемым гипнотикам – они погружают ребенка в сон. Это самые безопасные препараты для седации, которые существуют на сегодняшний день в мире. Они нетоксичны, не накапливаются в организме, не вызывают привыкания и аллергических реакций, не противопоказаны пациентам, страдающим такими заболеваниями, как эпилепсия, ДЦП, пороки сердца, поражения печени и почек. В нашей клинике лечатся дети с 9-10 месяцев и более. Поэтому мы можем использовать как севофлуран, так и пропофол для эффективного и безопасного проведения стоматологического лечения.

Как нужно готовить ребенка к лечению в состоянии медикаментозного сна?

Прежде всего детский врач-анестезиолог определяет общее состояние здоровья. После сбора информации назначается общий анализ крови с необходимыми уточнениями. Анестезиолог изучает эти анализы, осматривает ребенка и дает рекомендации по подготовке. Если у анестезиолога есть замечания, он может назначить дополнительные обследования.

Как происходит стоматологическое лечение в условиях медикаментозного сна?

Если противопоказаний нет, то родителей с ребенком приглашают в кабинет, где маленький пациент смотрит мультики, а в это время вводятся препараты и ребенок засыпает. После этого малыш переносится в стоматологическое кресло и проводится необходимое лечение. Средняя продолжительность лечения в “медикаментозном сне” – 2-3 часа, после чего ребенок просыпается, как правило, в хорошем настроении.

Каждый день мы проводим 3-4 лечения в медикаментозном сне, у нас работает 4 опытных анестезиолога и очень четко отработано протокол лечения в седации. Я, как детский стоматолог и отец четверых детей, хочу заверить родителей, что однократное недолговременное лечения в условиях медикаментозного сна поможет решить стоматологические проблемы с зубами, которые уже беспокоят ребенка или могут начать беспокоить привести к значительным осложнениям и даже к необходимости экстренной госпитализации. Пользуйтесь опытом современной стоматологии, чтобы ваш ребенок имел здоровые зубки и не испытывала страха и боли при лечении.
