Your procedure will be performed in one of our state-of-the-art treatment suites, which are held to the highest standards. Please view the videos and read the information on this page to learn more about anesthesia and oral surgery.

Our oral surgeon, Dr. Jason Straw, has been extensively trained to administer anesthesia and offers many anesthetic options to ensure that you are as comfortable and anxiety-free during your procedure as possible. These include:

  • Local Anesthesia — an anesthetic applied directly to the area of removal
  • Nitrous Oxide — also known as laughing gas, an anesthetic option used in congruence with other anesthetic options to calm anxiety during the procedure
  • Sedation Anesthesia — administered through an intravenous (IV) line that allows you to sleep during the procedure
  • General Anesthesia — an anesthetic delivered to allow a deep sleep during the procedure

Again, when it comes to anesthesia, our first priority at Orange County Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center is the patient’s comfort and safety. If you have any concerns regarding the type of anesthesia that will be administered during your oral surgery procedure, please do not hesitate to discuss your concerns with Dr. Straw at the time of your consultation.
