In case dental treatments cannot be performed under normal conditions due to the age of the patients or due to extensive destruction of the teeth, providing intubation anaesthesia (ITN) for the restoration of teeth is often the last option to help the affected patients. In many cases, children and patients with serious pre-existing conditions are primary recipients of this treatment option.
The Department of Conservative Dentistry offers dental treatment under intubation anaesthesia in specially equipped rooms. The dental treatments are carried out by assistant professors and dentists from the Department of Conservative Dentistry. An experienced team from the Department of Anaesthesiology and the Medical ICU at the University Hospital Tübingen looks after the patients during and after the treatment.
