Modern dental surgery achieves the better results through the combination of regional anaesthesia with conscious sedation techniques. Major dental surgery can be performed safely and comfortably if the dental equipe is skilled in performing conscious sedation and specific nerve blocks using long lasting local anaesthetics. More often zygomatic implants are positioned under general anaesthesia, a safe technique, but unsuitable for the dental office. We report our personal experience regarding two patients scheduled for bilateral zygomatic implants performed under regional anaesthesia and conscious sedation. Peri-operative complications were not observed and both patients resulted utterly satisfied.

Abstract

Modern dental surgery achieves the better results through the combination of regional anaesthesia with conscious sedation techniques. Major dental surgery can be performed safely and comfortably if the dental equipe is skilled in performing conscious sedation and specific nerve blocks using long lasting local anaesthetics. More often zygomatic implants are positioned under general anaesthesia, a safe technique, but unsuitable for the dental office. We report our personal experience regarding two patients scheduled for bilateral zygomatic implants performed under regional anaesthesia and conscious sedation. Peri-operative complications were not observed and both patients resulted utterly satisfied.
