General Anaesthesia

Information

Working with General AnaesthesiaGeneral anaesthesia is often a choice where complex paediatric dental care is required or a large amount of treatment is needed for a young or very anxious child.  Children who require multiple appointments can sometimes “burn out” or become uncooperative with future care. 

A general anaesthetic allows all treatment and xrays to be conducted under one appointment, where 4-5 appointments with local anaesthetic may be required in the dental surgery.

A general anaesthesia is performed by a trained specialist paediatric anaesthetist in a day surgical unit. The patient is intubated and 'asleep'.

All information and any questions, you may have, are answered prior to the treatment.
