Dr. Yasmin Kottait,Pediatric Dentist at myPediaclinic (Voted Best Pediatric Clinic in Dubai) discusses the possibility of using General Anesthesia for dental health care, when dealing with non-cooperative children.
Many times, children who need dental work are not cooperative, too young, or have special needs. Should we leave these children without any dental work simply because they are not cooperative? Of course, not.
Fortunately, there are new advances in medicine that allows us to do all the needed dental work under general anesthesia. This allows us to do all the dental work one session versus 6 or 7 sessions using the traditional method.
Parents are often considered about the general anesthesia. General anesthesia is safe given the medical advancement. However, choosing the right doctor and hospital is crucial.
