This hospital does not provide routine restorative dental care, for adult patients, under sedation or general anaesthetic. A very small number of patients are treated, when staff training is required.
In addition, adults with significant special needs that prevent them from receiving dental treatment in any other way, are also treated.
We suggest you contact the patient’s Primary Care Trust for details of colleagues who do provide this treatment in the Primary Care setting.
The Oral Surgery clinics commonly use sedation and general anaesthetic to assist in the extraction of teeth and other surgical procedures. Should you feel this is appropriate for your patient, we suggest you refer your patient directly to your local Oral Surgery unit, with recent, high quality radiographs of the affected teeth.
