Anesthesia & Sedation Options

At our practice, we prioritize patient comfort and safety during all dental and oral surgery procedures. Understanding that the thought of undergoing surgery can be daunting for many, we offer advanced anesthesia and sedation options in Martinez and Oakland, California, including general anesthesia and IV sedation, to ensure a pain-free and comfortable experience.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is used for complex and lengthy procedures, providing a state of unconsciousness and total lack of sensation:

  • Patients are completely asleep and will not feel any pain during the surgery.
  • Monitoring by a trained anesthesia professional throughout the procedure ensures safety.
  • Ideal for patients undergoing extensive surgical procedures or for those with severe anxiety related to dental surgery.

IV Sedation

IV sedation, or intravenous sedation, offers a moderate to deep level of sedation through medication administered directly into the bloodstream:

  • Patients remain relaxed and in a semi-conscious state, able to respond to verbal cues but typically remember little to nothing of the procedure.
  • The level of sedation is adjustable, allowing for a tailored sedation experience.
  • Recovery time is generally quicker compared to general anesthesia, with less post-operative grogginess.

Choosing the Right Option for You

  • Dr. Brandon Kang and our team will discuss your health history, the specifics of your procedure and your personal comfort level to determine the best sedation or anesthesia option.
  • Both options require a pre-operative consultation to review instructions and post-operative care plans to ensure a smooth recovery.
