Treatment under a general anesthetic is carried out in a hospital setting by the dentist Dr. Farshad and anesthesiologist Dr. Michael Chow. General anesthesia involves patients being ‘fully asleep’. Some possible side effects include nausea and a longer recovery time than other forms of sedation. Under general anesthesia, you don’t feel pain because you’re completely unconscious.
General anesthesia produces a more profound experience that usually leaves no memory of the actual procedure. It’s typically used for more intensive procedures like tooth extraction, dental implants, or other surgical procedures and the patient is unconscious during the process.
Benefits of General Anesthesia
General anesthesia is overall very safe; most people, even those with significant health conditions, are able to undergo general anesthesia itself without serious problems.
- You will be asleep during the procedure
- There is no time limit for how long general anesthesia can be administered

At Dynasty Tower Dental, almost exclusively in Toronto, we are specialized on administering dental treatments and oral surgery while the patient is under general anesthesia as the conditions are met on a high level in accordance with the RCDSO standards at our clinic. The patient can spend the time after the intervention, uniquely, in the comfort of the recovery room where she or he can even be with relatives.
