Will I Be Put to Sleep for Oral Surgery?

Sunrise Dental does its utmost to ensure a pleasant and easy experience for its patients. Anesthesia can be used if deemed necessary for the procedure by our experienced dentists. Depending on the nature of the procedure, local sedation or general anesthesia can be used to help operation along smoothly.

What are the Different Types of Anesthesia?

  • Local Anesthesia: Local anesthesia refers to a series of injections around the area to be operated on. You may feel a light sting from the needle and then pressure, but you should not experience pain.
  • Sedation Anesthesia: Sedation anesthesia is administered intravenously (IV) and works to place you in a state of suppressed consciousness. You will have limited memory of operation and experience no pain.  Local anesthesia is used in conjunction with sedation anesthesia to numb the local area.
  • General Anesthesia: General anesthesia is administered via IV or by inhalation. You will lose complete consciousness and have no memory of the procedure.

What Kind of Care Will I Go Through After Oral Surgery?

Standard care for all patients post-surgery will involve a series of checkups determined by our doctors in order to confirm that everything is healing properly and no infections have occurred. Medication can be prescribed to deal with any lingering pain from the procedure. Patients will experience mild discomfort, bleeding, and swelling to affected areas immediately after the procedure. Pain medication will be prescribed to keep you comfortable until the pain fades as you heal.
