What Types of Outpatient Anesthesia Are Available to Me? 

Depending on the type of oral-facial or implant surgery you get, surgery is commonly performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation, and general anesthesia, and typically in a hospital, ambulatory surgical center, or in our facility. We will discuss your options during your initial consultation with us so you can learn about the numerous ways we can make your procedure as comfortable as possible for you. 

Determining Anesthetic Options 

Oral and facial surgeons carefully assess various factors to determine the most suitable anesthetic options for a patient. These considerations include:

  • Medical History: Reviewing the patient's medical history to identify any existing conditions, allergies, or medications that may impact anesthesia choices.
  • Procedure Complexity: Assessing the complexity and duration of the oral or facial surgery to determine the appropriate level of anesthesia, whether it be local anesthesia, conscious sedation, or general anesthesia.
  • Patient Preference: Taking into account the patient's comfort level, anxiety, and preferences regarding anesthesia options.
  • Health Status: Evaluating the patient's overall health and any pre-existing medical conditions that might influence the choice of anesthesia.
  • Age and Weight: Considering the patient's age and weight, as these factors can impact the dosage and effects of anesthesia.
  • Monitoring Capabilities: Ensuring that the surgical facility has the necessary equipment and personnel to monitor the patient's vital signs and respond promptly to any complications.
  • Postoperative Considerations: Anticipating postoperative recovery needs and planning anesthesia accordingly to minimize discomfort and ensure a smooth recovery process.

By carefully weighing these factors, oral and facial surgeons can tailor anesthetic options to meet the individual needs and safety of each patient, providing a personalized and effective approach to anesthesia administration during oral and facial surgeries.
