Anesthesia & Sedation
We offer the following anesthesia and sedation options to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during surgery. We will discuss these choices during your initial consultation and help you make the best selection based on your medical history and your personalized treatment plan.
With a range of minimal to moderate, oral sedation requires the patient to swallow one or more prescribed pills that induce relaxation. Most patients under oral sedation remain awake during their surgery, but they do not remember much or any of the procedure after the sedation wears off.
A patient under IV sedation is given sedation medication through a vein. This type of sedation works quickly and effectively. During your surgery, the doctor monitors your level of consciousness and can adjust the flow of medication. When the procedure is complete, IV sedation stops.
The deepest form of sedation, general anesthesia induces an unconscious state. Patients under general anesthesia are in a deep sleep and do not wake during surgery. A breathing tube may be necessary. Patients requiring extensive or complicated surgery are candidates for general anesthesia.
Consultations & Treatment Options
Before surgery, we will meet with you and review your dental records, 3D scans, and x-rays. During your consultation, we will go over treatment options and address your questions and concerns. The doctor will provide guidance and make recommendations based on your unique circumstances, your goals, and your desired outcome. Our team is skilled and always concerned about your well-being. We do everything possible to make sure you’re comfortable and that you know you’re in good hands.
