COMFORT DURING PROCEDURESAt Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, our team strives to meet your individual comfort needs to ensure your experience with us goes as smoothly as possible in a relaxed setting. In order to help you be as comfortable as possible, we offer several anesthesia options.
IV ANESTHESIAFor patients in good health who are undergoing complex procedures or are nervous and anxious about going through a procedure, IV anesthesia is a solution that can help ensure you have a great experience. Intravenous medications are given to induce sleep, making you comfortable and unaware of the procedure. Local anesthetic is given once you are asleep to ensure your comfort after the procedure. There is a period of recovery in our office after IV anesthesia and patients generally feel tired for 1-2 hours after sedation.
The doctors of Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants are uniquely qualified and accredited to administer IV anesthesia based on extensive training under the supervision of anesthesiologists as well as ongoing training. We utilize the highest level of patient monitoring for safety and have staff that are specially trained to assist with anesthesia.
NITROUS OXIDENitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a safe and effective mild sedative agent that will help you relax during your procedure. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. Local anesthetic will also be given to keep you comfortable during and after the procedure. The effect of nitrous oxide wears off soon after the mask is removed, which allows people to drive home without an escort. Talk to us about whether nitrous oxide would be a good option for you at your next appointment.
LOCAL ANESTHESIALocal anesthesia is used to numb your mouth for all procedures. This limits any sensations you may feel during your procedure and for several hours after the procedure.
