For dental procedures that are more involved, complex or extensive, our Lethbridge anesthesiologist uses general anesthesia, which is essentially a state of medically-induced unconsciousness.
What is General Anesthesia?
General anesthesia is a state of medically induced unconsciousness with loss of protective reflexes. Under general anesthesia, patients are completely unconscious and unable to feel any pain during medical or dental procedures.
If you undergo a procedure with general anesthesia, you'll be completely unaware of the details of your dental procedure, and you won't remember anything about the process afterwards.
General anesthesia is usually administered via intravenous drugs or inhaled gas.
