Our Approach to Anesthesia

When it comes to anesthesia, our primary concern is your comfort and safety. Our team understands that each patient is unique, and we strive to create a personalized experience that addresses your concerns and ensures your peace of mind. We want you to feel like part of our family, and your well-being is our top priority.

If you have any concerns regarding the type of anesthesia for your oral surgery procedure, please discuss them with your doctor during your consultation. We are here to answer your questions and provide the support you need.

Types of Anesthesia

Local Anesthetic

The patient remains conscious; a local anesthetic (e.g., lidocaine) is administered in the area where the surgery is to be performed.

Local anesthetic is typically used in simple oral surgery procedures, minor soft tissue procedures, and tooth extractions.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation with Local Anesthetic

A mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen is administered through a nasal breathing apparatus; the patient remains conscious in a relaxed condition.

We might recommend nitrous oxide for simple or complex oral surgery procedures, including wisdom teeth removal and dental implant placement.

Intravenous Sedation (“Twilight Sedation”)

At ASA Dental Implants & Oral Surgery, we offer intravenous sedation, also known as “Twilight Sedation,” to enhance your comfort during dental treatment. This option helps you stay relaxed and calm, making it easier to tolerate and, in some cases, not remember uncomfortable procedures.

Advantages of IV Sedation

  • Administered and monitored by our experienced doctor.
  • Cost-effective compared to treatment in an operating room.
  • Allows you to be comfortable, calm, and relaxed, drifting in and out of sleep.

How IV Sedation is Administered

A thin needle is introduced into a vein in your arm or hand. Medication is administered through an intravenous tube, helping you relax and feel comfortable. Our goal is to use as little medication as possible to complete your treatment safely.
