As part of their training, oral and maxillofacial surgeons spend a minimum of four months administering anesthesia to hospital patients. In addition, the majority of their training involves providing outpatient general anesthesia and sedation to oral surgery patients. Our practice utilizes the same standard of care and employs the same monitoring procedures during anesthesia as are used in hospital operating rooms. Our doctors feel very comfortable in providing various types of anesthesia depending on your preferences and the difficulty of your surgery. Your doctor will discuss these options with you at your pre-surgical consultation appointment and will be glad to answer any questions that you may have.
