We want you to feel safe and comfortable at our office. Knowing that most of the services we offer can induce anxiety and fear, we offer a wide range of anesthesia options to ensure you’re receiving the best one for your needs. Our team is comprised of experienced oral surgeons and a nurse anesthetist, all of whom have advanced certification in anesthesia and are experts in safe, effective administration. We’re also trained in pediatric anesthesia as well as adult anesthesia and have AAAASF-accredited operating rooms capable of providing general anesthesia. It is scary and stressful to need oral and maxillofacial surgery, but we do all we can to help you feel calm, relaxed, and pain-free while you’re under our care. If you’re nervous about surgery, we invite you to talk with our team so we can address all your concerns and help you feel confident receiving treatment from us.

Our Anesthesia Options
Nitrous oxide, or more commonly “laughing gas”, is an odorless gas breathed through a mask worn over your nose. You’ll feel calm and relaxed, though you are awake to respond to our team. Once the mask is removed, the effects will wear off and you’ll be free to drive yourself home.
IV sedation is administered intravenously and provides the highest level of conscious sedation for more anxious patients. You’ll be able to communicate with us during your procedure, but you will most likely not remember any of it once the effects wear off. You’ll need someone to drive you home and you may feel drowsy for a while.
General anesthesia is medically induced unconsciousness and is generally administered in hospital settings. Our advanced anesthesia training as oral surgeons, in addition to having a certified nurse anesthetist on staff, allows us to provide this level of anesthesia in our Lynn, MA surgical facility. We’ll monitor your vitals constantly during your procedure to ensure the highest level of safety.
