Has anyone had root canal under general anaesthetic?
If you did, where did you go?

It’s looking highly likely that I’ll need root canal but bc of my anxiety and sensory issues, there’s no way I can do it unless I’m fully unconscious and I know that a normal dentist usually isn’t qualified to use anaesthesia

Haven't had it done personally, but I think you normally have to go to hospital for this.

No you don’t. It’s your normal dentist and light anaesthetic (basically just numbing)
You only go to hospital if it’s a severe case

dentists can give sedation; OP says they need general anaesthetic
