Anesthesia is an important part of any surgery and oral surgery is no exception. Your OMF specialist has had extensive training to evaluate and administer proper anesthesia for your situation. What does that mean?
It means that before your procedure your surgeon will identify, diagnose and assess the source of your pain, the level of your anxiety and will offer the appropriate anesthesia. Rest assured that your surgeon is fully qualified to administer local anesthesia, where the source of the pain is numbed, sedation, to calm you, or general anesthesia, if that is necessary.
OMF surgeons are trained in airway management, endotracheal intubation and the use of intravenous lines. Should the need arise your surgeon is skilled in managing complications or emergencies, though the safety record of anesthesia in oral and maxillofacial surgery is an enviable one.
