Our services are provided in an environment of optimum safety. We utilize modern monitoring equipment and our staff are well versed and experienced in anesthesia techniques.

When it comes to anesthesia, our first priority is the patient’s comfort and safety. If you have any concerns regarding the type of anesthesia that will be administered during your oral surgery procedure, please do not hesitate to discuss your concerns with your doctor at the time of your consultation.
Intravenous Sedation (“Twilight Sedation”)
Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation or Dental Intravenous Anesthesia or to some it is referred to as “Twilight Sedation” for their oral surgical treatment. Intravenous Sedation helps you to be comfortable and calm when undergoing oral surgical procedures. IV sedation is designed to better enable you to undergo your oral surgical procedures while you are very relaxed; it will enable you to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures. IV sedation will essentially help alleviate the anxiety associated with your treatment.
The goal of IV sedation is to use as little medication as possible to get the treatment completed. It is very safe, much safer than oral sedation.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous Oxide is a sweet smelling, non irritating, colorless gas which you can breathe. Nitrous oxide is safe; patients are able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions. The patient may experience mild amnesia and may fall asleep not remembering all of what happened during their appointment.
