Oral and maxillofacial disorders require general anaesthesia for appropriate treatment. Therefore, anaesthesia and pain management are crucial areas of veterinary dentistry. An analgesic plan including a multimodal approach should be in place during the peri-operative period and for several days to a week after hospital discharge and it includes local anaesthetic techniques performed preoperatively. Patients must be comfortable and relaxed in order to provide comprehensive dental therapy. Although patients may be sedated deeply enough to tolerate local anesthetic blocks and dental procedures, sedation leaves the airway and lungs unguarded. An unguarded airway predisposes patients to aspiration pneumonia, both from regurgitation and from the water and debris associated with the procedure. Placement of an endotracheal tube is the safest way to protect the lungs. With an endotracheal tube in place, inhalant anesthesia is easily administered and becomes the best option for anesthetic maintenance in nearly every patient.
This module details an analgesic plan to ensure the patients are comfortable and relaxed throughout dental treatment.
