General anaesthesia requires specialist equipment and highly trained staff, including a consultant anaesthetist and therefore, can only be delivered at certain sites. This is usually at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
We undertake removal of teeth (but usually not orthodontic extractions) in some children who are usually very young and are unable to tolerate their dental extractions with normal methods.
We also carry out fillings, extractions and preventative treatment, such as sealant, scaling and polishing in adult and child patients who have complex needs and are eligible for treatment under general anaesthesia.
