  • I HAVE A COMPLEX MEDICAL HISTORY IS IT SAFE TO HAVE ANESTHESIA IN THE OFFICE?
    Anesthesia providers in office settings are specially trained and certified to provide safe and effective anesthesia for a variety of medical procedures. They will evaluate your medical history and work with your dentist to develop an anesthesia plan tailored to your individual needs.
  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IV ANESTHESIA AND GENERAL ANESTHESIA?
    IV anesthesia allows the patient to remain conscious but relaxed during a procedure while general anesthesia causes the patient to become completely unconscious and unaware of their surroundings.
  • THERE IS A CHANCE I AM PREGNANT CAN I STILL HAVE ANESTHESIA?
    If you suspect that you may be pregnant, it is important to inform your healthcare provider prior to any medical procedures that may require anesthesia. If you are in child-bearing years, you will have a urine pregnancy test completed the day of the procedure.
  • CAN I EAT OR DRINK?
    Our fasting guidelines align with current literature for best outcome. Please adhere to the following: 8 hours fasting for heavy meal (i.e. steak and potatoes) 6 hours fasting for light meal (i.e. toast) 4 hours fasting for formula fed babies 2 hours for breast-fed babies and clear liquid (i.e. water, apple juice) Absolutely no chewing gum, candies, chewing tobacco or anything else by mouth is acceptable as they all increase gastric juices and can be an aspiration risk under anesthesia.
  • WHAT DO YOU DO TO TREAT PAIN?
    During anesthesia, different medications and techniques can be used to provide pain relief, as the patient will be semi-conscious. The anesthesia provider will evaluate the individual's medical history, the type and duration of the procedure, and the patient's underlying health status to determine the best approach for pain control during anesthesia.
