General Anesthesia

If your child is scheduled for dental treatment under general anesthesia, you might be wondering how this will play out.


General anesthesia is a state of controlled unconsciousness and is the deepest form of sedation. During a general anesthetic, medicines are used to put your child to sleep so that they are unaware of surgery and do not move or feel pain throughout the procedure.

Avenue Pediatric Dentistry is happy to work closely with a qualified team of board-certified medical anesthesiologists. What this means is that any child we take to the operating room will be sedated by an experienced physician specifically trained to administer general anesthesia.

Dr. Perusini maintains privileges at the Alberta Surgical Centre and the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Cases are booked following a strict protocol which will be reviewed in detail at your child’s consultation.

If your child is scheduled to undergo dental treatment under general anesthesia and you have concerns, please do not hesitate to give our office a call so that we can answer your questions.

Safe, expert-led general anesthesia: partnering with certified anesthesiologists for a sound a positive experience.
