Solutions for a Comfortable Oral Surgery Procedure

At Southwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we understand that undergoing oral surgery can be a daunting experience. That's why we offer a range of anesthesia methods to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation:

IV sedation, also known as "twilight" sedation, is a popular choice for patients undergoing oral surgery. Administered through a vein, this form of sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and drowsiness, allowing you to remain comfortable and unaware of the procedure. Despite being asleep, you can still respond to verbal commands and stimuli. Our highly trained team will monitor your vital signs closely throughout the surgery to ensure the optimal level of sedation and your safety.
Nitrous Oxide - Southwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas):

Nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as "laughing gas," is another option for sedation during oral surgery. This colorless and odorless gas is inhaled through a mask, providing a gentle and calming effect. Unlike IV sedation, nitrous oxide allows you to remain fully awake and aware during the procedure while reducing anxiety and discomfort. Once the mask is removed, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly, allowing you to resume your normal activities without any lingering sedative effects.
Before your surgery, our experienced team will discuss each sedation method with you in detail, including any potential side effects or risks associated with them. Your comfort and well-being are our top priorities, and we are committed to providing you with the highest quality care throughout your oral surgery journey.
