Our Select Anesthesia Options
Administered intravenously, this type of sedation puts you in a sleep-like state, though you will remain awake during your procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.
Used for the most complex or extensive dental procedures such as full mouth dental implant placement, general anesthesia is a combination of medications that renders you completely unconscious. Only specially trained practitioners like our oral surgeon can provide this level of anesthesia.
The Risks of Dental Anxiety
If you’re afraid of dental visits, you may decide to skip them and ignore dental symptoms that should receive attention. The associated risks are considerable, since small dental health issues that go unchecked can eventually turn into big ones. In these instances, the result can be a far more serious condition than you would’ve had if you’d pursued treatment earlier. This can lead to additional systemic complications, more pain, and more treatments. With all our soothing anesthesia options in San Clemente, CA, this need never happen to you. Reach out and learn more about how our specialized and comprehensive anesthesia options and non-opioid Exparel for postoperative pain control can safely offer the comfort and confidence you need for a healthy smile and a healthy life.
