Our job is to help you

to find the perfect level of anesthesia for you

Minimal Sedation

Patients respond normally to verbal commands.  Although cognitive function and coordination may be mildly impaired, breathing is unaffected

Moderate

Sedation

Patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or with light stimulation.  This is also referred to as “Conscious Sedation.”

Deep 

Sedation

Patients cannot be easily aroused but respond to painful stimulation.  The ability to breathe may be impaired and require assistance. 

General

Anesthesia

Patients cannot be aroused, even by painful stimulation.  The ability to independently breathe is often impaired and require assistance.

The level of anesthesia is determined by various factors including the patient's level of anxiety, medical history, and the nature of the planned procedure.

Our goal is to achieve the most comfortable, personalized, and safe anesthetic experience for our patients on their procedure day. 

Please contact us to discuss how we can help you!

Anesthesia for children

Every child walks into the dental office with different past experiences and emotions, which is why our approach to each child is unique.  Anesthesia allows us to protect the child’s mental wellness and complete quality dentistry in a controlled setting. 

With few exceptions, most children will fall asleep by simply breathing through a mask, which means no needles until they are fully asleep.

Anesthesia for special needs

Dental anesthesia plays an important role in assisting special needs patients to get dental treatments in a comfortable and safe environment. For many of these patients, even sitting in a dental chair can be very challenging.

 

With help from the parent and/or caregiver, we provide the best and safest way to start, maintain, and recover from anesthesia.

Nausea and Pain

We've got you covered

Nausea

Anti-nausea medication will be given to reduce the chance of post-op nausea and vomiting

Pain

IV Pain medication is available to minimize immediate post-op discomfort

What to expect on your surgery day

01. Arrival

The patient will be asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the procedure time. Along with performing a physical exam, we will answer any last minute questions.

 

For safety, the surgery will be cancelled if the patient has violated NPO guidelines or did not bring an escort. A parent or legal guardian must be present for minors.

02. Sleep

A mask is often used for pediatric patients to painlessly administer inhalation anesthetics. For certain pediatric patients and most adults, intravenous or intramuscular method of administration will be used. 

03. Surgery

We will be by the patient's side throughout the entire procedure, monitoring vital signs and ensuring comfort.

04. Recovery

Recovery time can vary from patient to patient. Once the anesthesiologist deems it is safe, the patient will be discharged and will spend the rest of the day at home.

 

The patient should be able to participate in normal daily activities the following day.

 

Do not hesitate to call us if there are any questions regarding post-anesthesia care.

Recover with a

boost of Vitamin C

After the procedure, you have the option to receive IV Fluid with a mixture of essential vitamins and electrolytes that can boost your recovery and immune system.
