More About Anesthesia
General anesthesia may be necessary for more complex surgical cases, such as facial trauma surgery or corrective jaw surgery. Usually, this type of sedation is performed in a hospital setting. The effects of IV sedation and general anesthesia often results in a patient remaining sedated (drowsy) for 12–24 hours following the procedure.
All oral and maxillofacial surgeons are required to complete extensive hands-on surgical training to obtain their credentials and must earn the highest level of licensure possible for dental practitioners, making them the most qualified candidates to perform anesthesia in an office setting. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, such as Drs. Bryan and Goodson, have obtained first-hand experience administering operating room anesthesia during their required hospital residency as well as their training in surgical facilities.
You can rest assured knowing that your surgeon is trained and highly qualified to administer the correct sedation for your oral surgery procedure and monitor you throughout treatment.
