Why Consider Anesthesia Services?
Our Select Anesthesia Options
This kind of sedation is taken orally, typically one hour before your visit. Many patients experience a decrease in dental anxiety and discomfort with the degree of effects depending on what medication is prescribed and at what dosage.
Often called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask prior to treatment. You’ll stay alert and awake but feel relaxed throughout your procedure. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed.
Administered intravenously, this type of sedation puts you in a sleep-like state, though you will remain awake during your procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.
Used for the most complex or extensive dental procedures such as full mouth dental implant placement, general anesthesia is a combination of medications that renders you completely unconscious. Only specially trained practitioners like our oral surgeons can provide this level of anesthesia.
