General Anesthesia

General Anesthesia in Dentistry, Ensuring Comfort and Optimal Care

General anesthesia in dentistry is a specialized approach that prioritizes patient comfort and safety during complex or invasive dental procedures. At Family Dental Group, we recognize the significance of providing a comfortable and anxiety-free experience for our patients. We’ll delve into the realm of general anesthesia, its benefits, applications, and address common questions through an FAQ section. Moreover, we ensure your access to optimal care by offering various financial assistance options.

What is General Anesthesia?

General anesthesia involves the administration of medications that induce a deep sleep-like state, rendering the patient completely unconscious and free from pain during a dental procedure. This approach is particularly valuable for patients with dental anxiety, extensive procedures, or complex surgeries.

The Advantages of General Anesthesia

  1. Enhanced Comfort: General anesthesia ensures that you remain comfortably unconscious throughout the procedure, eliminating any discomfort or awareness.
  2. Stress and Anxiety Reduction: For patients with dental phobia or anxiety, general anesthesia provides relief from the emotional distress associated with dental treatment.
  3. Pain-Free Experience: Dental procedures performed under general anesthesia are painless, as you’re unaware of the procedure’s progression.

Applications of General Anesthesia

  1. Complex Surgeries: General anesthesia is often utilized for complex oral surgeries, such as impacted wisdom teeth removal or reconstructive procedures.
  2. Young or Anxious Patients: Children or patients with severe anxiety may benefit from general anesthesia to ensure a stress-free experience.

The General Anesthesia Experience at Family Dental Group

  1. Consultation: The journey begins with a detailed consultation at Family Dental Group. Our experienced team will assess your medical history, discuss your dental needs, and determine if general anesthesia is suitable for your case.
  2. Anesthesia Administration: On the day of the procedure, a qualified anesthesiologist will administer the anesthesia to induce a deep sleep-like state.
  3. Monitored Care: Throughout the procedure, our team will closely monitor your vital signs and comfort levels to ensure your safety and well-being.

I recently got a mouthful of Crowns, done by Dr. Macy. She was incredible. She contacted me regularly (even on her days off!) to check on me. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Macy, Dr. Dusseau (our Dentist, who was on vacation) and Timmye (Assistant). My teeth look amazing. Thank you Family Dental!

This is the best dentist office I have ever been to! I used to be scared to go to the dentist because of previous terrible experiences – I feel comfortable at family dental!!
Shannon Brewer
Stunning, professional dental office that responded so quickly when an old filling fractured. They got me in right away and the process of getting that same-day crown was simply amazing. The dentist was fabulous, the assistants were incredible and the crown fit the first time it was put in. This is a happy place – the day I was there it was clear everyone was enjoying their work, enjoying the patients and enjoying each other. Incredibly positive and professional experience.!

Family Dental Group had been taking care of my teeth for a few years now and I tell everybody to go there. I not only feel cared for when I get my teeth cleaned but also empowered to continue caring for my own oral health. In my experience, they are honest in their recommendations and care; not always ambling for the upsell. The front desk employees are usually quite approachable.
