Pediatric General Anesthesia Dentistry

The choice to have dental treatment for your child under general anesthesia involves many factors and is decided by you and your dentist together after a thorough exam.  The general anesthesia used when completing dental treatment for your child is the same as that used in procedures like ear tube placement or tonsil removal.  We are here to safely and effectively deliver professional, compassionate general anesthesia dentistry care your child needs.

How to Prepare for General Anesthesia

Be Patient

Expect your visit to take between 2-5 hours.

Do Not Eat

Patients must not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your procedure. If your child does not come fasting, we WILL NOT be able to treat them due to safety concerns.

Bring a Change of Clothes

Bring an extra set of clothes for your child, just in case of an accident!

Be Flexible

We often don’t know exact treatment needs until a child is sedated, which means it isn’t possible to know exactly how long each procedure will take. As such, your child may be seen sooner or later than expected.

This is a Surgery Center

We will not rush the care of another child, just as we would never rush the care of yours!

Come Healthy

If your child is sick on the day of the procedure or has congestion in the lungs or throat, their treatment will need to be rescheduled.

Do Not Brush

Do not brush your child’s teeth the morning of the procedure.

Bring Toys or Games

Bring toys or games to keep your child, and any other children, entertained while waiting for the completion of the procedure.
