Patient comfort is key during any oral surgery. At Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, we know each patient may desire different options when it comes to sedation during oral surgery. Sedation levels can be adjusted based on the patient’s needs. Our oral surgeons are trained and board-certified to administer general anesthesia and IV sedation to provide the utmost comfort during oral surgery. To learn more about your oral surgery sedation options, contact our Montgomery practice today.

Types of Sedation Treatments 

Some patients require minimal sedation during surgery, while others may wish to be completely unconsciousness. This may be due to the type of surgery being performed or dental anxiety, but whatever the case, there is a sedation option that is right for each patient's needs.

Choosing the Right Sedation Method

Choosing the best sedation option for your needs is best determined between you and your oral surgeon. General anesthesia and IV sedation are not recommended for people with certain health issues, like heart conditions and uncontrolled diabetes, and can interfere with certain medications. Before undergoing any form of sedation for oral surgery, especially general anesthesia and IV sedation, it is important to discuss your medical history with your oral surgeon to reduce the risk of complications.

Schedule a Consultation

With sedation treatments, oral surgery doesn't have to be painful or uncomfortable. In fact, general anesthesia and IV sedation can allow you to sleep right through surgery for pain-free treatment. To find out which sedation option is right for you or to discuss your concerns, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with our oral surgeon team at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates. We look forward to hearing from you.
