Small children, those with extensive treatment plans or children with special needs may have their needed procedures completed as an outpatient surgery under general anesthesia.

Anesthesia is the administration of medication to provide sedation and prevent pain.  It also allows us to maintain stable vital signs and create optimum conditions to complete your child’s dental needs.

General anesthesia affects the whole body, produces unconsciousness and prevents any pain during surgery.  General anesthesia is produced by continuous administration of anesthetic medications through an IV, inhaled through a mask or breathing tube, or a combination of both.

Dr. Miller will discuss the advantages and risks associated with the recommended treatment for your child.  This will allow your family to choose the appropriate, most comfortable and safest way to complete your child’s dental needs.

Special needs children who are challenged physically or mentally are welcome.
