it is ESSENTIAL to discuss your daughter's condition with the anesthetist prior to the procedure.
This is a very rare condition but it is serious.
Dental risks for te procedure will depend on the severity of the impactions, position of teeth etc- but these must have been disucussed with you by your dentist.
