What is General Anaesthesia?
During General anaesthesia you are placed into a drug-induced state where you will not respond to any stimuli, including pain.

Who Is Suitable For This Service?
General Anaesthesia is a preferred option for patients that experience any of the following issues:
- Dental Fear or anxiety
- Fear of needles or drills
- Bad dental experiences in the past
- Have a strong gag reflex
- They need multiple and / or lengthy procedures
General Anaesthesia Fee Is Claimable From Medicare
As all General Anaesthesia procedures are carried out only by fully qualified consultant anaesthetists, a significant portion of the fee is claimable under Medicare!
Why under General Anaesthesia
We only administer General Anaesthesia, because at all times:
- The patient’s airway is fully protected
- Oxygen is continuously supplied to the patient’s lungs via a ventilator
- The patient is hemodynamically monitored
- It can be carried out safely for a long duration (allowing the dentist to perform multiple procedures in one session)
- The patient is comfortable, pain free and unaware of the dental procedure
