ANESTHESIA


What is Deep Sedation/General Anesthesia?


During the state of deep sedation or general anesthesia, dental work can be completed with no sensation of pain, no awareness of the procedure, and no memory or recall of the procedure

Who would benefit from Deep Sedation/General Anesthesia?


-Children (paediatric patients age 2+) who are pre-cooperative/uncooperative/fearful {See Children Tab for More Info}
-Special needs patients including those with mental or physical disabilities
-Anxious adults who are fearful/phobic of the dentist in general or of specific procedures and who are avoiding care because of this fear.
-Patients who cannot “freeze” from local anaesthesia or have an allergy to local anaesthesia
-Patients with a severe gag reflex who cannot tolerate oral procedures


Safety and Monitoring


The safety of every patient undergoing anesthesia, for all ages, is our collective priority. From our highly qualified Doctor and specially trained clinical team, to our hospital grade equipment and our finely tuned protocols and quality medications, EVERY effort is made to ensure your experience at Vaughan Mills Sleep Dentistry is one of high level safety, care and treatment.

We use the standard monitors required for the administration of anesthesia and continuously monitor our patients’ vital signs and breathing quality throughout the procedure.

We practice Procedural Team Anaesthesia, which means that there are THREE people monitoring our patients while they are under anesthesia:

1) The Doctor/Anesthesiologist 2) Registered Nurse  3) Anesthesia-focussed Dental Assistant.

Dr. Waxman is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Basic Life Support-Health Care (BCLS-H).

Operating Room priorities at Vaughan Mills Sleep Dentistry are:

1. Patient safety 
2. Team communication and cross-checks
3. Delivery of high quality dental treatment

Once Anesthesia has been administered, DR. WAXMAN NEVER LEAVES THE PATIENT.
