Sedation & Anesthesia

Effective Options to Relax During Treatment

If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from dental anxiety, COAFS offers a full range of general anesthesia and sedation options that will help you experience a more comfortable and anxiety-free procedure. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are certified by the National Dental Board of Anesthesia and can provide patients with techniques ranging from mild anesthesia for more routine procedures to general anesthesia for more complex treatments.

What Are the Benefits of Anesthesia and Sedation?

Some form of sedation may be preferred in order to alleviate anxiety and minimize any potential discomfort as much as possible. In more invasive surgical procedures, sedation techniques or general anesthesia may be necessary to perform the treatment. In either case, anesthesia techniques offer patients numerous benefits. The treatment process can be experienced in a more comfortable way, stress and anxiety can be reduced or even eliminated, and oral health can be restored.

Our practice offers the full scope of options. During your initial consultation, we will review your medical history and talk about the ideal plan for your needs.
