Queensway Dental Clinic, in conjunction with the University Hospital of North Tees, now offers adult patients a private General Anaesthesia (GA) service for their dental treatment.
Until now, the hospital general anaesthesia service was an NHS service that could only be accessed by children, by adults with special needs or by adults requiring complex oral surgery.
This new general anaesthesia service for dental treatment, run by Queensway Dental Clinic in conjunction with the University Hospital of North Tees, is only available on a private basis to severely phobic adults that are otherwise healthy, but may not have attended check-ups or have had dental issues tended to for many years.
Typical treatment that can be carried out under general anaesthetic includes essential routine dental care i.e. fillings and extractions, dental implant placement and its associated surgery or oral surgery procedures such as the removal of wisdom teeth and difficult extractions.
Dental treatment under general anaesthesia isn’t suitable for everyone. It is only to be used as a last resort when other anxiety control methods for dental treatment, such as conscious sedation have been deemed inappropriate by a dentist.

Patient suitability will be determined by a dentist at an assessment visit at Queensway Dental Clinic.
If you would like to discuss your dental concerns with Dr Paul Averley to be considered for dental treatment with general anaesthesia, please call 01642 554 667.
