In conjunction with an anesthesiologist, we also offer general anesthesia if necessary. General Anesthesia is a treatment with certain medicines that will put your child into a deep sleep so they do not feel pain during surgery. When they receive these medicines, they will not be aware of what is happening around them and will have no memory of the procedure. This type of dentistry is best for patients with severe dental anxiety, children that are too small for conscious sedation in our office, or children with a large amount of dental treatment needed. So that both you and your child are comfortable, the anesthesiologist will meet with you prior to this type of sedation and answer any questions you may have.
