General anesthesia and is usually offered to children who are incompatible with the other methods. When administered, your child will not be awake during the procedure. General anesthesia is only administered at outpatient surgery centers or hospitals and only used when the benefits are greater than any risk your child may face undergoing the sedation. It is important to make your dentist aware of any illnesses or changes in health history prior to this appointment.
After their appointment, if they are drowsy and want to sleep, ensure you lay them on their side with their chin up. Please keep your child hydrated by giving them something to drink every hour or so. We will provide you with a list of instructions to follow after your child’s appointment.
