General Anesthesia

A dental office operating room setup for anesthesia.

This is the most predictable method for patients to truly sleep through their visit with maximum pain and anxiety control in order to obtain no memory, no feeling, no awareness, or recollection of the procedure. This method of anesthesia is typically utilized for patients requiring more challenging and lengthy procedures. With this method of anesthesia the patient is unaware of the procedure being performed, and is not in the so called half awake-half asleep stage.

A highly-experienced, hospital-trained, state-licensed, board-certified anesthesia care provider, dentist, physician, or certified registered nurse anesthetist will be providing the anesthesia care.
