Whenever you come to our Houston, TX dental office for oral surgery, you may be worried about feeling unnecessary pain or discomfort during your procedure. Having to have any sort of surgery performed always brings up anxiousness, and the idea of being in any sort of pain can be terrifying. Luckily, Dr. Thomas Weil and Dr. Steve Koo are able to alleviate that fear by offering anesthesia to their patients.
There are a few forms of anesthesia that we offer our patients. The first is local anesthesia, which involves injecting the anesthesia into the oral tissue to numb the area that will be worked on. The second is IV sedation which means we inject the anesthesia into the vein. With this form of sedation, you will not experience any pain whatsoever, but will be conscious and responsive during the surgery. There is also general anesthesia, which is administered via IV, but the patient is unconscious during their dental work. This type of anesthesia, though, is reserved for healthy patients in our office setting.
With any sort of sedation, all of our patients will be monitored. Your blood pressure, heart, respiration, and blood oxygen levels are always paid attention to, as to make sure you have the safest oral surgery possible.
