While many oral surgery procedures can be done with standard local anesthetic techniques, several procedures are better performed while our patients are sedated with general anesthetic. All of our surgeons are licensed in dentistry and medicine and have thousands of hours of anesthesia training. Additionally, our surgeons are all certified in advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, basic life support, and routinely provide general anesthesia in the outpatient setting. Through the combination of both local and general anesthetic techniques, we are able to provide our patients with a safe, comfortable, and convenient way to have their surgery.
The list to the right is an abridged list of the most common sedation and general anesthetic related topics managed by the highly trained, diverse group of specialists at HNSA. It is for patient information only and is not meant to be all-inclusive.
