At Portland Oral and Facial Surgery, your comfort and safety are our top priorities. We understand that dental procedures, particularly oral surgeries, can cause anxiety for many patients. Our team of highly trained oral surgeons is well-versed in a variety of sedation and anesthesia techniques, designed to provide a calm and pain-free experience during both simple and complex dental procedures.
Sedation and anesthesia are used to manage pain and anxiety during dental procedures. They range from mild sedation, where you remain awake but relaxed, to general anesthesia, where you are completely unconscious. The level and type of sedation or anesthesia used will depend on the nature of the procedure and your personal comfort level.
Oral surgeries, such as dental implants or wisdom tooth extraction, often require stronger forms of sedation or anesthesia due to their complexity. These might include:
Even for simpler dental procedures, such as fillings or crowns, sedation can help patients who experience dental anxiety or have a low pain threshold. Options for these procedures might include:
At Portland Oral and Facial Surgery, our skilled team will thoroughly discuss all available options and recommend the most suitable sedation or anesthesia method based on your needs and the specific procedure. Our goal is to ensure that your experience with us is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
