Hospital Dentistry / General Anesthesia
Children who have severe anxiety, are too young to cooperate, have extensive dental needs or have certain medical conditions may be candidates for their dental treatment to be completed under general anesthesia. With this form of sedation, the child is completely asleep or unconscious. This is the same type of sedation used for common procedures such as having tonsils removed or ear tubes being placed. This is performed in a hospital or outpatient setting only.
