A Look At Our Anesthetic Options

santa rosa sedationWe offer oral surgery to help rebuild smiles, repair trauma, and even replace missing teeth. We know that the concept of undergoing oral surgery can seem scary, but we take measures to help ensure each and every patient feels comfortable. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about dental anesthesia and sedation.

Our Expertise

We have training and extensive experience in the administration of dental anesthesia, and we always implement the latest technologies and medications. Your comfort and safety are always paramount! We can provide a calming solution for patients of all ages, from children to elderly patients. Our team members are also licensed and accredited, and always follow the strictest guidelines. We follow the same strict safety standards that doctors and nurses follow in hospital waiting rooms!

Dental Sedation Options

What calming agents do we offer our patients? For minor procedures, we can use nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. This is administered through a mask over a nose, and the gas helps people enter a calm and relaxed state. The effects wear off as soon as the procedure ends, so you can return to work or school or even drive yourself home. We also have oral sedation, given in pill or liquid form before the procedure begins. This helps people enter a much deeper state of calm, and with little to no memory of the procedure. The effects will wear off gradually, so a friend or family member will need to bring you home. Finally, we have IV sedation, the deepest form of calm available. This is administered through an IV and you will be monitored by a trained anesthesiologist the entire time. Again, a friend or family member will need to bring you home as the effects take time to wear off completely.

Oral Surgery

We could use these calming agents before we extract teeth, insert dental implants, or treat facial trauma. We also offer implant dentures and bridges, and could rebuild weakened portions of your smile with jawbone grafting and sinus lifts. We also correct the symmetry and balance of your jaw with correct surgery as well. We have a host of procedures that we can offer comfortably to restore the balance, health, function, and even the beauty of your smile. If you have any questions about how we restore smiles, then contact our team today to learn more.
