General Anesthesia

While techniques of procedural sedation manage more than 95% of patients, there remains a small group of patients who require anesthesia that renders them unconscious. This is performed in the same-day surgery unit of a local hospital. We maintain a hospital affiliation to treat those patients that require general anesthesia.

General anesthesia usually starts off with an injection in the hand or arm. It’s typically more common to use general anesthesia in procedures such as: 

General Anesthesia in Voorhees South Jersey

General anesthesia is usually only used if extensive dental work is needed and when other forms of sedation or pain control are not sufficient to conquer fear. Our anesthesiologist is board certified. He completed his residency and fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania and has extensive experience in private practice and academic anesthesia. We do not use a nurse anesthesiologist. Your safety is always Advanced Oral Specialty Group’s primary concern.
