Hospital Dentistry Under General Anesthesia
Sometimes the only safe way to provide dental care for infants, children, adolescents, or persons with special health care needs is in the hospital, under general anesthesia, and under the auspices of an anesthesiologist. We often treat patients who present special challenges related to age, behavior, medical status, developmental disabilities, intellectual limitations, or special needs. Dental decay, periodontal diseases, and other oral conditions, if left untreated, can lead to pain, infection, and loss of function. These undesirable outcomes can adversely affect learning, communication, nutrition, and other activities necessary for normal growth and development
To address these challenges and meet these treatment needs effectively, pediatric dentists have developed and employ a variety of management techniques, including accessing anesthesia services and the provision of dental care in the hospital setting with general anesthesia.
“Dr. Bracho and her assistant (Tamra) were hands down, amazing with my daughters appointment. They explained everything to her and made sure she was 100% comfortable the entire time. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a pediatric dentist!!”
