General Anaesthesia

For many patients, dental fear provokes a terrifying involuntary reaction of one's body that prevents them from getting the dental care they need. For these patients, a routine dental treatment can be quite traumatic. Dr. Tamminen and the staff at his office understand your concerns and wish to provide you with dental care in a safe, relaxed and comfortable environment.

The use of sedative and general anaesthetic drugs under a controlled environment can benefit many people, particularly:

  • patients with anxiety, fear or phobias about dental care
  • patients with anxiety, fear or phobias about only certain dental care: surgical endodontic, periodontal treatment
  • patients with physical, medical or emotional disabilities that compromise optimum dental care
  • patients with extensive treatment needs where fewer, longer appointments are more easily scheduled
  • patients who cannot control their gag reflex
  • patients who are resistant to or cannot tolerate local anaesthesia
