General Anesthesia in Dubai
Reasons for General Anesthesia
General anesthesia for adults
Experience dentistry that’s stress-free
This type of sedation is ideal for those needing more invasive and complicated treatments. It is also a good option for people with dental anxiety or phobia, and those with special needs.
Under this anesthesia, you won’t feel pain, as you’ll be asleep throughout the procedure. In fact, you are unlikely to remember any part of the dental treatment with this method. If you get jittery about dental treatments, dentistry under anesthesia can be a solution.There are high chances that general anesthesia will leave you feeling somewhat groggy for a considerable time afterwards and needs to be administered by a surgeon or anesthetist.
General anesthesia for kids
Safe and pain-free dental care for children
Many young children come to us with severe pain and need dental treatments, and our pediatric dentists do their best to make every visit as comfortable as possible. However, some children may need to have their dental treatment performed under general anesthesia to receive comprehensive dental care.
To keep your child safe and comfortable during a dental procedure, our dentists will recommend general anesthesia to perform dental treatments only if it is needed.
It is a safe state of controlled unconsciousness, your child will be put to sleep while our pediatric dentist performs the dental work. General anesthesia is done by a pediatric anesthesiologist, who is a doctor who specializes in anesthesia for children.
Your child will be given the medications that will make him or her sleep comfortably during the procedure and be unconscious, free from pain, and will be unaware of the treatment.

The cost of general anesthesia for a dental procedure will hinge on the time and complexity of the dental procedure. It will also be determined by the level of sedation and how many dental appointments are necessary. This price will not include the cost of the dental procedure itself, just that of the aneasthesia.
On the day of your dental procedure, your dental specialist will conduct a thorough check to make sure that you are healthy and ready for anesthesia. General anesthesia can be deployed in one of several ways — by IV, by breathing through a mask, or by an injection (much like a vaccine). Once asleep, an IV is placed and an endotracheal tube is inserted. The endotracheal tube works like a snorkel, allowing the patient to breathe and protecting the airway when the dental work is being done. Treatment under general anesthesia is conducted under the most rigorous safety protocols. The dental expert will monitor vital signs, including blood pressure, blood oxygen level, pulse and heart rate during the procedure.
General anesthesia is commonly used to perform dental treatment in patients with dental phobia, challenging behaviour, many of whom are children or patients with special needs.
The anesthetic drugs can stay in your system for up to 24 hours. It is advisable to avoid going to work or driving home until the drugs have left your body.
