General Anesthesia

For some children, treatment under general anesthesia in a hospital may be advised for completing their dental work. Medically speaking, anesthesia is an induced state of unconsciousness. In practical terms, the patient is asleep and unable to respond to touch or voices. It is most often recommended for young children with extensive treatment needs and/or special medical/developmental needs. Every parent should know that children face the same risk under general anesthesia for dental treatment as for any other surgical procedure. Only highly qualified anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists in a hospital setting provide the anesthesia services. Parent are always welcome ot ask the pediatric dentist any questions about benefits and risks of this treatment.

Candidates for Hospital dentistry include the following:

  • Children that have extensive dental needs
  • The medically compromised child
  • The mentally handicapped child
  • Children that have a strong gag reflex
  • Children that have had traumatic dental experiences
  • The very apprehensive child
  • Infants
