General anesthesia is a dental sedation option available at Summerlyn Dental Care. General anesthesia will be given to you in a form of a medication that will keep you on the verge of unconsciousness, or render you totally unconscious in a deep sleep during a dental procedure.
While under general anesthesia, you will not be easily awakened until the anesthesia wears off or is reversed with medication. This is beneficial during dentistry because while unconscious, you will not feel pain during any surgery or procedure. In addition, you will feel no anxiety.
General anesthesia for dentistry is not only used for complex dental treatment, but also recommended for those with acute dental anxiety. The experienced staff at Summerlyn Dental Care has completed special training to use general anesthesia for dentistry and will ensure your comfort during your appointment.
General anaesthesia is performed at Summerlyn Dental Care in Bradford under the expert supervision of Dr. Grant Lu MD, CCFP, FRCP(C) who has extensive training and experience as Medical Anaesthesiologist. He is ACLS (Advanced Life Support) and PALS (Paediatric Life Support) Certified.
