Please inform the anaesthesiologist about the allergies, other diseases and conditions that you have, medications that you are using, especially blood thinners and clot prevention medications, loose teeth or periodontitis, as well as if anaesthesia had previously caused you any health damage.
Calming medications. Depending on your emotional state, the night before and/or shortly before the surgery, you will be given calming medications that will reduce unrest and anxiety, and cause sleepiness.
Depending on the specification of the surgery, at ORTO Klīnika we use:
