Purpose: This retrospective study evaluated different dental treatment modalities operated under general-anesthesia (G. A) and compared the performed treatments in normal and special-needs children. Methods & Materials: Data was collected from Pediatric-Dentistry-Unit at King-Saud-Hospital. Patients less than 15 yearsold who were dental-treated under (G. A) from September, 2008 to December, 2013 were divided into 2-groups. The normal patients were assigned to group (π) and special-needs patients who had any mental, physical or medical-disability were assigned to group (?). Treatment-modalities such as teeth-restoration, pulp-therapy, stainless-steel crowns-capping, fissuresealant- application and extraction were statically-analyzed by t-test. Results: A total of 756-patients were treated under (G. A), 641-patients were included in group (π) and 115-patients were assigned to group (?). The major underlying problems in group (?) were diabetic (13%), renal-failure (3. 5%), and cardiac (6%), mental-retardation (38. 3%), autism (7. 8%), cerebral-palsy (20%), developmental-delays (2. 6%) and epilepsy (8. 7%). There were insignificant differences in ages, sex and total number of treated teeth in both groups, p>0. 001. (59%) of group (π) and (40. 9%) of group (?) were younger than 6-years their mean of extracted-teeth was significantly greater in group (?) and there was a significant increase of restored-teeth and sealant-procedures in group (π), there were also significant increase in using crowns and pulp-therapies in group (?), P<0. 05. However, (41%) of group (π) and (59. 1%) of group (?) were larger than 6-years showed a significant increase in teeth-extraction in group (?) but there were more crowns and pulp-therapies in group (π) but there were insignificant differences in restoration and sealant-procedures between groups, P>0. 05. Conclusion: G. A for special-needs and young-children was essential as well as safe and efficient. Also, performed treatment modalities were affected specially by mental, medical and physical-disability-conditions that needed simple procedure with minimal-complication.
