ABSTRACT
General anesthesia has been researched and developed in dentistry as on type of management technique to sedate patients who may be uncontrollable or require medical consideration. There has been continuous research into this area, but analysis of large set of patients over a sustained period of time is lacking. Thus, this study analyzes the records of patients who received general anesthesia at the Yonsei University Dental Hospital Department of Pediatric and Clinic for the Disabled. 1. Patient's age ranged from 1 to 66, with under 5 being the largest group with 410 members(38.5%). The study included more men than women, with 695 male members(65.3%). 2. Type of dental procedure performed were as follows(per person) : 5.6 Dental restoration; 2.3 Endodontic treatment of deciduous and primary teeth; 2.5 preformed crowning; and 1.6 extractions. Procedures took an average of 100 minutes. 3. 1022 patients(95.9%) received dental care under general anesthesia once and 43 patients(4.1%) received dental care under general anesthesia two or more times. Dentistry under general anesthesia has the many benefit. However, without appropriate post-treatment care, it is difficult to maintain good oral health. Therefore, it is important to improve the efficiency and safety of general anesthesia through future research.
