My 10 year old autistic son has to have a general anaesthetic to remove 4 baby teeth which won't come out - he has a second row of bottom teeth like a shark! Am worried about the anaesthetic as he had one when he was two years old and when he came round he was thrashing and kicking and clearly disorientated. Also don't know how he'll stay still for the injection - had to sit on him for the dentist to even glimpse inside his mouth. We do use social stories with him which really help but has anyone else had to go through this and can offer any tips? Really appreciate advice! Thanks
