European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,

Emotionally immature children are more likely to develop health problems, including dental
problems. Dental treatments require a good level of communication with the patient.
Therefore, in these patients, sedation and general anesthesia are an extremely humanistic
approach for comfortable and successful treatment. In such children, there is no standard
anesthetic approach due to varying clinical conditions. The aim of this study was to compare
general anesthesia and sedation during dental treatment of such children.
25 children with greater than 16 score on Rutters Child Behaviour Scale were treated under
general anesthesia or sedation. Demographic data, the American Society of Anesthesiologists
classification, Mallampati score, anesthesia duration, anesthesia type, anesthetic and
analgesic agents used, dental treatment performed, secondary diseases, and complications in
the perioperative period were recorded.
