Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are licensed to provide anesthesia in their offices. Blue Ridge Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery provides oral sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), IV sedation and general anesthesia at our office. We use the most modern monitoring equipment and put patient safety and comfort as our primary goal during any procedure. We have a highly skilled nursing staff to assist our doctors with each sedation to ensure that you receive the highest level of care.
During your initial consultation, you will have an opportunity to discuss what type of anesthesia you want for your procedure. As with any procedure, any form of anesthesia has risks and they will be discussed with you at your first appointment.
Please remember that is you are scheduled for IV or general anesthesia, do not eat or drink anything for at least 6 hours prior to your procedure. Please refer to the link on Pre/Post Operation Instructions on our home page for more information.
