There are occasions when a patient’s dental health circumstances, medical history, age or level of anxiety warrants treatment be completed in a hospital operating room environment utilizing general anesthesia administered by an anesthesiologist. During the treatment an anesthesiologist monitors the patient’s vital statistics while the dentist completes the dental procedures. While there are risks associated with having dental treatment completed under a general anesthetic, most often, all recommended dental treatment can be completed in one visit, which can be extremely helpful for the persons that need this type of treatment.
