Dental Treatment under general anesthetic is ideal when extensive dental treatment needs to be completed.

Treatment can be done in one simple appointment while you’re put to sleep. It’s ideal for adults who need multiple teeth extracted or filled, for children who need multiple teeth filled, or for any person suffering of dental phobia.

Of course the first point of call for dental phobia would be a variety of techniques including a lighter form of sedation such as achieved by happy gas, but for some, the idea of being put to sleep provides further reassurance. Under this form of treatment a general anaesthetic is administered by a specialist medical anesthetist.

How is General Anesthetic administered?

Dental Treatment under general anesthetic is usually started off with an injection in the hand or arm. It can be supplemented by a face mask but if a face mask is used you probably won’t remember it.

If post-op pain is expected, the normal practice is to inject a long acting local anesthetic during the GA, so that when you wake up everything is nice and numb for a good few hours afterwards, which should give you time to take some painkillers and allow them to kick in. It’s much better to prevent pain than it is to try to deal with it once it has started. However you are also welcome to use normal pain killers as may be needed after the placement of any regular filling once the anaesthetic wears off. In the case of extractions you may also be prescribed with antibiotics but this will depend on the level of difficulty of the extraction.

Treatment Under General Anesthetic

We treat all our general anesthetic patients at St.Andrews Hospital in Spring Hill and as such booking times for this procedure are longer. We recommend you contact us as early as possible if you’re looking to plan an appointment this way. Our regular appointments at St. Andrews are mostly organised for a Wednesday morning session. You should allow a half day for the procedure to allow for admission, treatment and recovery at the hospital.

We will always do a fortnightly review of all our patients after treatment with general anaesthetic at our Dental On Park premises.

Patients will be given an information booklet, as well as an admission booklet to fill out so that we can organise the appointment.

Payment for General Anaesthetic is expected upfront but can be organised via our Payment Plans.
