In cases where patients have special medical concerns, IV or oral sedation may not be the right option. In such circumstances, general anaesthesia can be administered. At Lundy's Lane Dental Office, our dentist Dr. Rashid has hospital privileges at the Niagara Falls General Hospital. We’ll assess you in our office. Patients who qualify are scheduled through our office. If you believe you or your family member in Niagara Falls requires general anaesthesia during a dental procedure, contact us today.

General anesthesia is determined depending on the case and may be recommended for patients who:
Experience high anxiety during surgeries
Have a low tolerance of pain
Are allergic to local anaesthesia
Require complex dental procedures
Have difficulty keeping their mouth open for too long
Have strong involuntary gag reflex
Have a mental or physical disability because of which they are unable to remain calm
