General Anesthesia

Dental treatment can be provided while your child is given a general anesthetic administered by an anesthesiologist. Outpatient general anesthesia is appropriate for children who are extremely apprehensive or have extensive dental needs. Treatment is performed in a hospital operating room while your child is completely asleep. An anesthetic gas is given to your child through a breathing tube to keep them asleep during the procedure. All of your child’s dental treatment needs can be completed in one visit. Before recommending outpatient general anesthesia, Dr. Soper and Dr. Capozza will discuss with you the risks and benefits of this approach.

 

Nitrous Oxide

Some children are given nitrous oxide (commonly called “laughing gas”) to help them relax for dental treatment. This blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide, is given through a small breathing mask placed over the child’s nose. The gas is mild, easily taken, and quickly eliminated from the body. Nitrous oxide gives most children a relaxed, comfortable feeling. While inhaling nitrous oxide, your child remains fully conscious and keeps all natural reflexes. This technique is a very safe, effective way to treat a mildly anxious child.

 

Outpatient General Anesthesia
Dental treatment can be provided while your child is given a general anesthetic by a physician (anesthesiologist). Outpatient general anesthesia is appropriate for children who are extremely apprehensive or have extensive dental needs. Treatment is performed in a hospital operating room while your child is completely asleep. An anesthetic gas is given to your child through a breathing tube that will keep them asleep during the procedure. Before recommending outpatient general anesthesia, Dr. Soper or Dr. Capozza will discuss with you the risks and benefits of this approach.

 

In-Office Sedation

If IV sedation/general anesthesia is recommended for your child’s dental treatment, it will be performed by licensed pediatric anesthesiologist Dr. Viola Devany. She will administer and monitor the sedation medication during the dental treatment. IV sedation/general anesthesia will enable your child to be asleep during the dental treatment.
