Dr. Sam Pollock and Dr. Jordan Dobmeier provide general anesthesia to help you receive the treatments you need without difficulty. Our dentists typically recommend general anesthesia for patients who have extreme difficulty in receiving dental treatment. General anesthesia is often an excellent choice for:
- Children who cannot relax or calm down in order to receive treatment safely
- Oral surgery or other procedures that are difficult to provide for patients who are awake
- Individuals who need extensive work completed in a single appointment
- Patients with disabilities or special needs that prevent them from understanding directions and safely receiving treatment
General anesthesia works by inducing sleep. It is typically administered via inhalation or through an injection into the hand or arm. Our dentists will also use a long-lasting local anesthetic as part of your procedure to ensure that you wake up feeling numb following your treatment and to enhance your comfort as the general anesthetic wears off.
Our team will also provide you to instructions about eating, drinking and various activities you can and cannot do both before and after your procedure in order to make your treatment as safe and effective as possible.
