Anesthesia

The more you know, the less you have to be anxious about.

Whether your procedure requires local or intravenous anesthesia, modern technology makes it possible to perform complex surgeries in the office of your oral and maxillofacial surgeon, with little to no discomfort.
Through extensive training, oral & maxillofacial surgeons are well-prepared to identify, diagnose and assess the source of pain and anxiety within the scope of their discipline. They are also equipped to administer local anesthesia, all forms of sedation and general anesthesia, as well as experience in airway management, endotracheal intubation, establishing and maintaining intravenous lines, and managing complications and emergencies that may arise during the administration of anesthesia.
Your oral & maxillofacial surgeon will review with you the type of anesthetic to be used, as well as the way you’re likely to feel during and after the operation. Be sure to discuss any concerns you may have. Local anesthesia, nitrous oxide-oxygen, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia may be used. Following surgery, you may be prescribed a medication for any discomfort you may have.
