General Anesthesia

General Anesthesia

Sometimes a child needs to be unconscious in order for the dentist to safely complete needed dental treatment. General anesthesia puts a child into a deep sleep. He or she is unable to feel pain or to move around. This is the same kind of sleep a child would have for removal of tonsils or placement of ear tubes. General anesthesia is done in a facility where anaesthetist will be doing the anesthesia while paediatric dentist will be performing the treatment. Your child will go home the same day. More information about general anesthesia will be given if general anesthesia is chosen as treatment option.
