The nature of our treatments often invokes fear in our patients, but many times our patients are also anxious about having to receive anesthesia for their surgery. We’re aware that our patients feel this way and take purposeful steps to create a calm and safe place at our office. Our staff, oral surgeons, and certified nurse anesthetist are here to give our patients the best possible surgical experience, whether adults, teens, or children. We offer nitrous oxide and IV sedation at our Peabody, MA surgical facility and our AAASF-accredited operating rooms are equipped to provide general anesthesia. “As a company, we feel it is imperative that our employees take an active role and interest in continuing education. Also, several of our employees are DAANCE certified. Additionally, we have employees that have privileges to work in the local hospitals where our doctors operate. (DAANCE: The Dental Anesthesia Assistant National Certification Examination)”. No matter your level of anxiety or the type of surgery you need, we have the training and anesthesia services to ensure your comfort and safety during treatment.
Pain free, stress free sedation options
Our Anesthesia Options
Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is an odorless gas you breathe in through your nose during treatment. Though you are awake, you are relaxed and calm.
IV sedation is administered intravenously and is often referred to as “twilight sleep”. You’ll likely not remember the procedure, though you are responsive during treatment.
General anesthesia is medically induced unconsciousness that will leave you with no memory of the procedure. Our nurse anesthetist will monitor all your vitals during and after your procedure.
Customized Anesthesia Services
Our anesthesia services are customized based on the nature of your treatment and your personal level of anxiety about the treatment. Many of our patients, once educated on their condition and their treatment options, feel less fearful about undergoing surgery and receiving anesthesia. Each case is unique, however, and we’ll recommend which anesthesia option is best for your situation. No matter what treatment you need, we’re here to help the experience go smoothly, provide a comfortable recovery, and help you return to optimal oral and maxillofacial health.
