When treatment is required for a serious dental condition, general anesthesia may be recommended to make the treatment process more safe and comfortable for children.
When a child with disabilities needs extensive dental treatment, general anesthesia is an accepted standard of care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services support this standard.
General Anesthesia is also an accepted standard of care for situations involving children who have limited comprehension or who are extremely uncooperative and require dental care that is technically difficult or sensitive to deliver.
We have highly trained board certified Pediatric dentistry providers here at American Dental Clinic & Advanced American Dental Center.
