We have a range of anesthesia options to make you optimally comfortable, including local, inhalation, and full general anesthesia. With our expertise, patients can undergo surgery and not remember their procedure. Patients can also expect to recover from the affects of anesthesia quickly, usually in about 15 minutes.
We offer three basic types of anesthesia. Local anesthesia, which is
necessary for most surgical procedures in and about the mouth. We offer
inhalational anesthesia, typically nitrous oxide, and full general
anesthesia, which is inducing a sleep-like state. and inducing and
maintaining a sleep-like state so that the patient can sleep through
something that they would otherwise not want to be awake for.
For healthy patients, it is as safe as local anesthesia, sometimes more
safe, in that we eliminate the stimulus of pain from the procedure. The
added benefits are that the patient hears nothing, they feel nothing, and
they remember nothing.
Anesthesia generally facilitates the surgery process. We know the patient
is comfortable. We can work much more efficiently, and the procedure gets
done quicker and there tends to be less complications.
Patients with the anesthesia we provide recover in as little as five to ten
minutes. They sometimes take a little longer. We have a recovery room. They
can stay there until they're ready to go home.
