I was referred to this Clinic by another oral surgeon to have a wisdom tooth extracted. Normally not a big baby, my last extraction was 45 years ago and it didn't go well. This morning the doctor saw me, additional x-rays were taken and we had a brief discussion of my options. OK -- the point of this review, surgery at 11:30am and he was done at 11:45am (15 minutes later). I used laughing gas, which (as a big baby) I consider a MUST HAVE for dental work, and by 5:30pm the same day I was going into my swimming pool and answering emails. Light pain killers (I don't like them), nearly no discomfort, I've even had something to eat. I'm no expert, but the equipment at the Clinic looks very good, the Clinic is very professional, costs were probably the higher end of Chiang Mai, but still a fraction of US or Europe. I don't make these decisions with money in mind, but this was an excellent and very professional experience all around. Day 2: Still a big 5 stars. Totally normal day, no discomfort at all.
I have received root canal treatment, crowns, fillings and cleaning from Dr. Catt at Protech Dents first in 2016 and again in May, 2019. This last time I traveled from Australia purely for the dental care, having such a positive experience the first time. She is without doubt the best dentist I have ever visited, regardless of the much cheaper cost involved, as apposed to Australia. A modern clinic with modern equipment, hygiene a priority, but more importantly a pain free and careful treatment by a caring doctor. Highly Recommended!!!

Anesthetics are a medication that causes temporary loss of sensation or awareness. They are used during tests and surgical operations to prevent patients from feeling pain and discomfort, keeping them comfortable and enabling a wide range of medical procedures to be performed.
There are several types of anesthetic, including:
Anesthetics are given by an anesthetist (doctors who have received specialist training in anesthesia) in a number of ways, including as a gas you breathe in, as an injection into a vein, or as an ointment, spray, or drops.
With local anesthetics, you should be able to leave the hospital on the same day. If your surgery involves a general anesthetic, you may need to stay in the hospital for a few days. In general, plan to stay in Thailand for at least 2 to 14 days.
Recovery time depends on your specific situation, the type of surgery you have, and the type of anesthetic used. The effects of local anesthetic usually wear off in a few hours. General anesthetics may affect your memory, reflexes, and concentration for a day or two. It is generally recommended that you take time off work for at least a week or two, but, again, it depends on the type of surgery you undergo.
Specific instruction will be given by your doctor, which may include food and activity restrictions. It is important to follow all of these instructions closely. Although the instruction will be tailored to your specific condition, you may be advised to avoid driving, drinking alcohol, or signing any legal documents for a few days.
Undergoing surgery and receiving anesthesia is safer today than ever before. Thanks to continuing advancement in equipment, medication, and training, serious problems are becoming rarer. However, this does not mean that there are zero risks. Although very rare, all types of medical procedures carry a potential risk, such as nerve damage and an allergic reaction to the anesthetic medication.
There are no alternatives to anesthetics. Without anesthetics, surgeries can be very painful and dangerous. Also, some surgeries would not be possible to be carried out without anesthetics.
