During the early planning stages for your surgery, your dental surgeon will likewise create a plan for post-surgical pain management. Our surgeons here in Irvine have a great deal of experience and training and are committed to providing you with a positive experience.

Experts in Anesthesia and Sedation

Following dental school, oral and maxillofacial surgeons engage in several years of residency training alongside medical residents. During this time, they spend a full rotation working with a medical anesthesiology unit and become experts in evaluating patients to determine the best options, administering and monitoring anesthesia and sedation.

They are likewise trained in intravenous access and maintenance, airway intubation and maintenance, and emergency dental care in the unlikely event such care is needed.

Our patients often report that their surgery experience was comfortable and surprisingly pleasant.

One or more of the following may be used during surgery to ensure your comfort: local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia. Your surgeon will discuss options for sedation during your surgical consult and help you to choose the best options for your needs.

During surgery, you are carefully monitored by the surgeon and trained assistive personnel. We monitor your status using oxygen sensors, continuous electrocardiogram readings (ECG) and an automated blood pressure cuff. After surgery, the surgeon will provide you with a prescription to control pain during the healing process.
