As an oral and maxillofacial surgery specialty practice, it is often necessary for patients to receive some form of anesthesia during their treatments. Anesthesia and sedation help patients relax, block out sensations of pain, and sometimes put patients to sleep so they don’t even remember their surgeries. Our oral surgeons are trained and certified to offer advanced IV sedation to give patients the ultimate in gentle, pain- and anxiety-free procedures. IV sedation is often used for complex surgeries like those we perform at our office, but some patients with extreme dental fears or anxieties may opt to receive this sedation for treatments like tooth extractions, gum grafting or crown lengthening.
When receiving IV sedation, the sedatives are administered directly into your veins and bloodstream. This makes the sedation fast-acting and potent, putting patients into a relaxed, sleep-like state quickly. Our surgeons are certified to administer IV sedation, so you can expect safe, monitored treatment the entire time you receive care. Most patients remember little to nothing about their treatments or surgeries after undergoing IV sedation, “waking up” to a healthy new smile!
For procedures that do not require IV sedation, we also offer oral sedation pills and local anesthetic options. Oral sedation is a form of anesthesia that puts patients in a dream-like, relaxed state. Most patients are awake throughout their treatment, but do not remember much of it. Local anesthetic is often combined with oral and IV sedation to block sensations of pain or discomfort from the locations of the mouth where your treatment will take place. With our anesthesia options, there really is no reason to fear your treatments!
