General Anesthesia

What is General Anesthesia?

Anesthesia is a great option for dental procedures that are more involved and take more time. At Thornton Kids Dentistry, we offer anesthesia to ensure your child’s dental appointment will be as seamless and stress-free as possible. When your child undergoes anesthesia, the anesthesia will be administered by an anesthesiologist, and it will ensure they are fully asleep for their entire dental procedure. Whether your child suffers from severe dental anxiety or they just need a little extra help to calm down for a long treatment, we’ll work with you to determine if anesthesia is the best option.

Benefits of Anesthesia Over Sedation Dentistry

  • Anesthesia provides a deeper, more long-lasting sleep
  • Patients will not feel or remember anything done while under anesthesia
  • Anesthesia ensures the patient cannot move during the procedure if they’re prone to anxious reflexes
