There are different types of anesthesia: Local Anesthesia, Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen and Intravenous Sedation. If you are going to have oral surgery, it is normal to have questions about anesthesia.

Please review the different types of anesthesia offered at Florida Oral Surgery, and kindly let us know which one you would prefer.
With local anesthesia you will remain conscious throughout the procedure, however the area of surgery will be numb.
With the nitrous oxide-oxygen, also known as "laughing gas", you will remain conscious throughout the procedure, and the N2O will help to keep you feeling relaxed and comfortable. You may feel fuzzy for a short time right after the procedure, however it will help to make your overall experience a positive one.
Intravenous sedation will put you in a safe, relaxed and comfortable state for your surgery. You will be in a controlled state of unconsciousness, so it will reduce your fear and anxiety tremendously.
Anesthesia and Sedation
Several medications are available to help create more relaxed, comfortable dental visits. Some drugs control pain, some help you relax, and others put you into a deep sleep during dental treatment.
