JARA-GALVEZ, Roxana; HOLA-JACOB, Sandra  y  HASSI-THUMALA, José. Dental care under intravenous sedation in children hospitalized with chronic respiratory diseases. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.1, pp.94-96. ISSN 2452-5596.

The Josefina Martínez Hospital specializes in the care of children with chronic respiratory diseases. There, we implemented a model of dental care under intravenous sedation and cardiorespiratory monitoring, with the participation of a multidisciplinary team.


Describe dental care in hospitalized patients with chronic respiratory diseases. Identify the most prevalent oral diseases and the treatments performed.

Materials and Methodology:

The study was conducted including dental care under intravenous sedation, between 2014 and 2016, considering 18 hospitalized patients. All received sedation and analgesia with Midazolam-Ketamine with continuous non-invasive monitoring during the procedure.


A high prevalence of gingivitis, dentomaxillary abnormalities and eruption disorders was found. Caries lesion had a low prevalence. The treatments performed were: prophylaxis, scaling, application of chlorhexidine and / or fluoride varnish, extractions, surgical exposure of teeth and restorations.


It is important to show our experience, since we have made timely, efficient and low cost treatments, improving the oral health of children. In addition, they were attended without requiring the transfer to other health centers, which allowed to meet the emergencies and the comprehensive dental care of the patients.
