General Anesthesia

Depending on a child’s age, level of cooperation and dental condition, general anesthesia may be recommended to deliver treatment in a safe and comfortable manner. General anesthesia is recognized as a safe and effective way to treat children who have limited comprehension or those that are uncooperative and require dental care that is technically difficult to deliver. General anesthesia is not done in a pediatric office, it is done in a surgical center or a hospital by an anesthesiologist who specializes in treating children .
