Berks Oral Surgery + Dental Implant Center understands that the idea of oral surgery is enough to make a patient feel uneasy. Fortunately, we can make your treatment time surprisingly comfortable with the aid of anesthesia. Our team members have had extensive hospital training in all aspects of anesthesia administration as well as emergency care.

Whether you decide to have your procedure performed with local anesthesia to numb the area or a stronger form of sedation and anesthesia to remain unaware during treatment, we have the means to perform even complex surgery in the oral and maxillofacial surgery office with virtually no discomfort. Patients frequently describe the anesthesia experience as pleasant and have no recollection of the surgical procedure.

Our Training And Experience With Anesthesia

Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons have completed rotations on medical anesthesiology, during which they learn to evaluate patients for anesthesia, deliver the anesthetic, and monitor patients after it is administered. They also maintain unrestricted anesthesia permits in our state, hold certifications from the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology, and follow all guidelines set by the state of Pennsylvania regarding how anesthesia is administered.

In addition to this, they are certified in advanced cardiac life support and pediatric life support. When we administer anesthesia, our patients are placed on monitoring equipment comparable to technology used in a hospital setting.

During your initial consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss the type of procedure you require, your medical history, and your degree of anxiety. The choice of anesthesia is a personal decision, something that should be made after discussion with your doctor.
