General Anaesthesia

If your child is unable to tolerate conscious sedation or had extensive dental treatment needs, we may recommend General Anesthesia. A highly trained and experienced anesthesiologist administers general anaesthesia and monitors your child in a pediatric surgical theatre.

The risks of NO treatment include tooth pain, infection, swelling, the spread of new decay, damage to their developing adult teeth and possible life-threatening hospitalization from a dental infection.

This is a routinely performed procedure for children requiring extensive dental treatment.
