Sedation Options

We understand that oral surgery can be stressful for some patients. That’s why we offer a variety of sedation options to ensure your comfort and safety throughout your procedure.

At Southwest Oral Surgery, we believe in personalized care. During your consultation, our experienced oral surgeons will discuss your individual needs and preferences to determine the most suitable sedation option for you.

We offer local Anesthesia, the most common form of sedation, numbing the specific area of your surgery. Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) to help you relax and feel lightheaded while remaining awake during the procedure.

We also offer medication to take beforehand to help reduce anxiety or we may recommend IV Sedation. This method involves administering a sedative through an intravenous line, inducing a deeper state of relaxation where you may not fully remember the procedure.

Our oral surgeons are highly trained and experienced in administering various sedation techniques, ensuring your safety and well-being throughout the entire process.

After your surgery, we will closely monitor you until the effects of the sedation wear off. Depending on the chosen method, you may require assistance driving home. Our team will provide clear instructions and answer any questions you may have.
