Anesthesia

Our doctors receive special training, including at least four years of hospital-based residency and medical anesthesiology in the area of General and IV Sedation Anesthesia, and as Oral Surgeons are part of the only specialty recognized by the ADA who are able to administer IV Sedation Anesthesia in the office setting. Additionally, our facility and staff are reviewed by the Indiana Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons on a regular basis. Many people who have dental insurance with benefits for anesthetic options still avoid dental care because of their anxiety and fear about anesthesia.
At Edison Lakes Oral Surgery, we offer a wide variety of safe and conventional anesthetic options to fit each patients’ condition. These options include Local Anesthesia, Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen (laughing gas), Oral Conscious Sedation, IV Sedation (twilight), and General Anesthesia. Our trained customer service staff will discuss your anesthetic options with you when you call to make your appointment. Your doctor will make every effort to provide you with the anesthetic option of your choice, however, given your individual medical status, there may be anesthetic options unavailable to you.

While under anesthesia, our doctors and staff will closely monitor your vital signs. Our office maintains up-to-date monitoring equipment that will observe all aspects of your vital signs including blood pressure, pulse oximetry, heart rate, ECG, temperature, and end-tidal CO2 breathing monitoring. Emergency medications and equipment are available in the event they are needed. Our goal is to provide our patients with the most comfortable and safely-provided care possible.

Edison Lakes Oral Surgery provides anesthetic options for special needs patients or those who are physically and/or mentally challenged. Please make our staff aware of any special conditions when making the appointment, and we are happy to provide a way to accomplish oral surgery in a patient-specific manner.
