  Generally, dental treatment in pediatric patients can be done by using non pharmacological behaviour management techniques without any drugs. Various behaviour management techniques are available comprising of : non pharmacological behavioural techniques, conscious sedation and general anaesthesia. General anaesthesia is utilized for pediatric dental patients to provide complete and efficient dental care when conventional techniques cannot be applied or not effective. Pediatric dentists need to recognize the requirement of dental treatment under general anesthesia and to work with an anesthesia team to provide optimal comprehensive dental care. Hence, the purpose of this review it to provide a brief insight on the use of general anaesthesia in pediatric dentistry.
