The number of children with caries requiring general anesthesia to achieve comprehensive dental care and the demand for dentist anesthesiologists to provide ambulatory anesthesia for these patients is increasing. In 2010, the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry was developed. This Web-based database allows providers of ambulatory anesthesia to track patient demographics and various outcomes of procedures. This presentation reviews a secondary analysis of data collected in the registry over a 4-year period, 2010–2014. Of the 7041 cases reviewed, no cases resulted in serious complications, including death, anaphylaxis, aspiration, cardiovascular adverse events, or neurologic adverse events. Of the 7041 cases reviewed, 196 (3.0%) resulted in a predischarge or postdischarge adverse event. The predischarge adverse event occurring with the highest frequency was laryngospasm, occurring in 35 cases (0.50%). The postdischarge adverse event occurring with the highest frequency was nausea, reported by 99 patients (5.0%) for the 1991 patients reached for follow-up by the dentist anesthesiologist following their procedure. This analysis provides strong clinical outcomes data to support the safety of office-based anesthesia as performed by dentist anesthesiologists in the treatment of pediatric dental patients. Example of a typical patient procedure will be presented for discussion.

Orofacial disfunctions affect speech, breathing, swallowing, posture and the tooth holding apparatus. The orofacial system is anatomically and neurophysiologically intense and highly complex networked in permanent interaction with other body systems and often gives an idea of the complexity. As a sensomotor unit it is in constant interaction with a variety of other parts of the body. An unphysiological posture can severely disturb the performance of the mouth area. Symptoms of a general posture weakness in the orthopaedic sense, which the orthodontist can recognize by the child's open mouth, strain his teeth development and promote infections due to lack of nasal breathing. Respiratory problems caused by hyperplastic tonsils or adenoid can lead to sleep disturbances and also speech or voice disturbances. Such disfunctions are not only the result, but also be the cause of tooth malpositions. Grabowski emphasizes the interactions between the orofacial area and the entire body tooth malpositions and are often the visible image of multi-layered dysfunctions. Many diseases originate from the mouth. There are many interconnections and are susceptible to disturb the balance between tooth position, jaw development, total body tension, mouth closure and tongue function and speech. Multicausal interactions show up the close connection between breathing, swallowing, speech (dis-) functions, whole body posture, trunk musculature, fascia and tongue function should be emphasized and spotlights to a major challenge for all doctors, dentists and therapists involved in the care. The everyday work shows that monocausal and locally starting therapy leads to unsatisfactory results. In order to achieve stable results in this field, interdisciplinary systemic access in diagnostics and therapy is a prerequisite. Speech and voice disorders with the participation of the orofacial system and corresponding malfunction occur in any stage of one’s life.
