ABSTRACT
Under this thesis, 235 patients with dental problems treated under general anesthesia at the Pediatric Dentistry Clinic of Yonsei Dental College were surveyed and their age distribution, reasons for taking general anesthesia, duration of anesthesia, duration of dental procedure, dental treatment peformed and complications were analyzed. A questionnaire survey was also conducted to analyze degrees of anxiety and satisfaction among their parents according to the parents' age, educational background and experience of general anesthesia, as well as the patients' age and past dental history. Following are the results. 1. When the patients were treated under general anesthesia, the degree of anxiety of their mothers was higher than that of their fathers. It appeared that the higher the parents' educational background was, the less their anxiety. 2. The higher the parents' educational level was, the higher the degree of satisfaction after treatment under general anesthesia. 95 cases (87.2%) responded that they would accept such treatment again, if needed. From the result, dental treatment under general anesthesia causes anxiety for parent but the parent's satisfaction level was high. And that was the way gives good quality of dental service to unmanagable patients.
