Some patients may require general anesthesia performed in a hospital setting due to pre-existing health problems or the need of an extensive or complex dental surgery. Hospital sedation provides an alternative for those who cannot maintain or receive traditional dental care.
Hospital sedation is performed in a hospital setting under the guidance of an experienced anesthesiologist. Hospital based dentistry may be considered for very young patients, children with special needs, those with extreme dental phobia, or those who require extensive dental restoration that may otherwise require multiple appointments.
Each individual is unique, and the need for hospital based dentistry will be evaluated on an individual basis. Our office can answer any questions you may have about hospital based dentistry or other treatment options.
