Turkey Medicals – tell your doctor in Turkey about the medications you are using and the substances you are allergic to when you go to Antalya and Istanbul hospital dentist center, dental treatment. Never skip this vitally important behavior.

When elements such as anesthetic solutions used in dental treatments, fear before treatment, and the interaction of the drugs you use combine, you may experience many complications that will endanger your life. It will be useful for you to get acquainted with them, to take some measures.

What we have written may cause you fear, but we feel it our responsibility to inform you about these issues as well.

Although the complications we listed below have a one-percent, one-thousandth, one-thousandth, or one-hundred-thousandth incidence, it does not mean that you will not encounter them during treatment.

Syncope (Fainting)

It occurs for heart-related or non-cardiac reasons. Syncope is defined as temporary loss of consciousness due to insufficient cerebral blood flow, which develops due to a sudden decrease in cardiac output (pulse volume).

Fainting is a picture characterized by a decrease in functions such as breathing and circulation with sudden loss of consciousness.

Syncope is a short-term and reversible loss of consciousness. It is the most common complication after anesthesia applied in dentistry.

Since blood accumulates in the lower parts of the body, there is a shortage of circulating blood. The return of blood to the heart slows down, and anemia and loss of consciousness suddenly occur in the brain. The clinical symptoms of syncope are a feeling of heaviness in the head, darkening in the eyes, dizziness, pallor, chills and cold sweating.

The reasons for the appearance of fainting can be listed as follows:

Fear, excessive pain, stuffy environment, the opposite effect of adrenaline contained in anesthetic solutions used in dentistry, low blood pressure. Patients who are afraid should not wait too long in waiting rooms, especially where there is a crowded group of patients, so as not to encounter such situations.

The patient approach of physicians should be more friendly and positive. It is recommended that patients prefer physicians with whom they can express themselves well and get along. Patients should feel peaceful in the waiting rooms.

The fact that the air is clean and fragrant also makes the patient comfortable. Jul: We must eliminate the bloody surgical instruments left over from the previous treatment before the patient is treated. The environment should be sparkling, clean, airy and in the best way possible in accordance with hygiene requirements:

Every precaution should be taken to ensure that the patient does not feel the smell of the material, especially in dental clinics.

Late recognition of fainting and delays in taking the necessary measures can lead to irreversible disorders due to lack of oxygen, and cardiac arrest may occur due to prolonged lack of cardiac output. The dentist’s position next to the patient will both reassure the patient and provide the opportunity to intervene when there is a problem.

Lifting the patient’s feet above the level of the heart in case of fainting will help the patient to recover quickly.

Frequent Breathing and Tremors

It is the picture that arises from the strong and frequent inhalation of patients due to fear.

Due to the acceleration of breathing, the electrolyte balance in the blood is disturbed and tremors occur. The patient needs to be immediately calmed down and returned to normal breathing.

Temporary Drowsiness

It is a complication caused by the direct insertion of the needle into the nerve during dental treatment.

As a result, long-term loss of sensation and sensory disturbances may occur in the area affected by the nerve.

Although in most cases a turnaround is detected in the first months, this picture can last a long time and be permanent.

Mouth Jaw Fixation

It occurs after anesthesia to anesthetize the lower jaw; it is a restriction or complete locking of the patient’s mouth opening. This condition can usually occur after infection, blood coming out of vein and accumulating under the tissue, and injections into the chewing muscle.

The most infection

Infections that develop after anesthesia injection occur due to reasons such as the fact that the conditions are not sterile and the patient’s oral care is poor.

Inflammation of deep tissues leads to more serious complications.

Antiseptic mouthwash and cleaning of the area before injection reduces this risk.

Before starting dental treatment, tell your dentist about all the medications you use, the diseases you have. Don’t say, ‘I can’t have it’. Just because you weren’t allergic to a drug or anesthetic solution before doesn’t mean it won’t happen now. Remember, your life is more valuable than anything else. That’s why fasten your seat belt so that it can keep you safe in case of a complication that you will encounter.

Anaphylactic shock is life-threatening

Acute reactions with anesthetic solutions used in dental treatments occupy a very important place. This allergic reaction may be due to the anesthetic reaction that will provide anesthesia, as well as the vasoconstrictor contained in the anesthetic substances. After restlessness, severe cramping, sneezing, the face, lips and eyelids suddenly swell. There may be swelling in the tongue and throat that can cause life-threatening conditions. At the final stage of anaphylactic shock, respiratory failure, loss of consciousness and, finally, cardiac arrest, death occur. The patient is laid on the floor with his head to the side. The tongue is prevented from clogging the throat, the airway is kept open, the movable prostheses present in the mouth are removed, oxygen is supplied, and adrenaline therapy is started intravenously. Ill should be sent to the hospital soon.

In cardiac arrest, artificial respiration is performed

Cardiac arrest is a condition that can occur not only during dental treatment, but also anytime, anywhere. It can be encountered in the waiting room, during treatment, after treatment, when the patient returns to his home or work. We can list the symptoms of cardiac arrest as follows: absence of blood pressure and pulse, cessation of breathing, patient’s immobility, a gray ashy complexion, sweating, dilatation of the pupils.

In such cases, patient is laid flat on the floor, everything that squeezes the body is relaxed, artificial respiration is started at Antalya and Istanbul JCI hospital emergency department.
