General Anesthesia

Anesthesia—a state of sleep induced by medication—is an essential part of the comfort and ease we provide during our dental procedures. When all other options, such as oral and IV sedation and laughing gas, aren’t enough, General Anesthesia will provide a pain-free, anxiety-free, and even memory-free dental experience. Skilled and compassionate, Dr. Ali and our team use General Anesthesia to make the most frightening, anxiety-ridden dental experience peaceful and relaxing.

Who would benefit from General Anesthesia?

  • Patients with physical, developmental and psychiatric disabilities who have a difficult time sitting through a dental procedure
  • Patients who have difficulty getting numb with a local anesthetic
  • Patients with a local anesthetic allergy
  • Patients with a severe gag reflex
  • Patients who need to undergo extensive and uncomfortable dental treatment
  • Children unable to cooperate during their dental treatment

Safety and Anesthesia

Your safety is our top priority. Our anesthesiologist has an excellent safety record in anesthesia, as the training for anesthesia is very extensive, more so than for any health specialist.

General Anesthesia: What to Expect

Plan to fast—Do not consume food or drinks 8 hours prior to your procedure if you are having IV (Twilight) Sedation or General Anesthesia.

Bring a driver—You will need an adult to accompany you to your appointment and drive you home after IV Sedation or General Anesthesia if you are taking oral sedatives.

Comfort and care—We will make you comfortable before, during, and after your procedure, using the anesthesia plan that we discuss with you in advance.
