General Anesthesia

Ensure a comfortable and anxiety-free dental experience with our general anesthesia options. Suitable for extensive treatments or dental anxiety.

General anesthesia is an essential option at Select Dental Office for patients undergoing extensive dental procedures or those who experience high levels of dental anxiety. It allows for a completely pain-free and stress-free experience by inducing a state of unconsciousness where no pain is felt.

What is General Anesthesia?

General anesthesia is a form of deep sedation administered intravenously or through inhalation. It is used to render the patient unconscious during dental procedures, ensuring they do not experience any discomfort or anxiety. This type of anesthesia is typically recommended for:

  • Extensive dental surgeries.
  • Patients with severe anxiety related to dental procedures.
  • Patients who have difficulty staying still for prolonged periods.

Benefits of General Anesthesia in Dentistry

  • Complete Pain Relief: Ensures that patients feel no pain during procedures.
  • Anxiety Control: Alleviates anxiety, making it ideal for patients with dental phobia.
  • Efficiency: Allows dentists to work more efficiently without patient movement.
  • Comprehensive Treatment: Enables multiple procedures to be done in one visit, which is less time-consuming for patients.

The General Anesthesia Process

  1. Pre-Procedure Consultation: Includes a detailed review of the patient’s medical history and a discussion about the anesthesia process.
  2. Administration: Administered by a licensed anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist under close supervision.
  3. Monitoring: Throughout the procedure, the patient’s vital signs are continuously monitored to ensure safety.
  4. Recovery: After the procedure, patients spend time in the recovery area until they are fully awake and their vital signs are stable.

Preparing for General Anesthesia

  • Patients should not eat or drink for several hours before the procedure, as instructed by the dental team.
  • It’s important to arrange transportation as patients will not be able to drive immediately following the use of general anesthesia.
  • Follow all specific pre- and post-care instructions provided by your dentist to ensure a smooth experience and recovery.
