Because oral surgery can be a stressful experience, we offer sedation through a variety of anesthetic options to our patients for a more comfortable experience. Choices include general anesthesia, intravenous (IV) sedation, nitrous-oxide sedation, and local anesthesia. Depending on your comfort level, your medical condition and the procedure's complexity, Dr. Huynh will help you determine the sedation method that’s optimal for you.

General Anesthesia is designed to enable you to sleep during a surgical procedure. It is a deep, comfortable level of anesthesia that keeps you unaware of the surgery.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation is considered a "twilight sleep". This method enables you to undergo a conventional surgical procedure in a comfortable and relaxed manner. IV sedation allows a feeling of well-being during the procedure.

Nitrous-Oxide, also known as "laughing gas" is a light anesthetic gas that creates a sense of euphoria. This method relaxes the patient and is most effective for patients who need just a little help to reduce their anxiety.

Local Anesthesia is often referred to as Novocaine or "numbing medication". Used to induce numbness, it allows for localized pain-free manipulation of the surgical area. It is often not adequate for patients with a high level of anxiety.

The highest level of patient safety is maintained at all times. Dr. Huynh has advanced training from an accredited oral surgery program in the administration of anesthesia, patient monitoring and emergency care.

NOTE: Patients undergoing sedation and general anesthesia must have an escort present on the day of treatment. Review pre-operative instructions for sedation
and general anesthesia.
