Show Summary Details


This chapter will concentrate on anaesthesia for procedures involving the gums and teeth including extraction (exodontia) and for the purpose of preservation or replacement of teeth. Removal of teeth for either caries or impaction is one of the commonest surgical procedures undertaken in the United Kingdom (UK). In the vast majority of cases the removal of teeth, and most other dental surgical procedures, can be carried out as day cases using local anaesthesia with or without sedation. However, general anaesthesia is still a frequent request from both surgeon and patient.
