Dallas Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery


The surgeons at Dallas Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery offer a wide range of anesthesia options, including local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and general anesthesia.


At your surgical consultation, our doctors will review your medical history and consider the procedures you’re having performed to determine the optimal method of anesthesia/sedation. In most cases, IV sedation is recommended.

Dental Implant procedures, while involving minimal post-operative pain, usually involve multiple pieces of equipment and absolute stillness during the procedure. This is best accomplished with sedation during placements of implants.

IV sedation involves the use of sedating medication delivered directly into the bloodstream. Patients enter a state of mental and physical relaxation, without being “under” as with general anesthesia. IV sedation is safe and effective. It alleviates anxiety and promotes complete comfort. Additionally, treatment and recovery time tends to be shorter using IV sedation than with other methods.
