Safe & Different Anesthesia
The general anesthetic I've been providing patients with for over 35 is a time-tested, proven technique that is very different from that given in a hospital operating room.
It is specific for the comfortable and safe delivery of fine dental care. Unlike most hospital anesthetics and even some anaesthetics given by itinerate anesthetists in dental offices, you or your child will not have your breathing stopped or placement of a stiff breathing tube through your nose and vocal cords (a reason for sore throat in hoarseness). You will not be kept asleep by concerning anesthetic gas. You will be blissfully unaware and unconscious but not so deeply asleep you could have your appendix removed. Dentistry Asleep is a philosophy of giving just enough anesthetic for safety and effectiveness with a balance of medications deemed to be protective of the brain. More like natural night-time sleep.
While you or your child is asleep, I am extremely experienced in providing a very wide range of dental treatments for both adults and children which has many differences to dentistry provided on awake patients. Most patients are referred to me by other dentists confident in the dental care and anesthesia services. That is my specialty as a Certified Dental Anesthesiologist.
Having a general anesthetic, deep sedation or light sedation should be a pleasant experience overall. It should not be a form of unpleasant restraint and it should cause you no harm. Many very fearful patients come to actually looking forward to treatments because the experience is so pleasant.
No patient, adult or child, under my anesthetic care, over the many years of my practice, has ever needed to be hospitalized or been seriously harmed by the anesthetic in any way.
Recent concerns have been raised regarding the effects of usual anesthetics on the brain by drugs that are most commonly used by most anesthesiologists.
My anesthetic techniques are different in several ways to protect yours or your child's brain.
I avoid these suspected medications and use others that are considered protective of the brain. This is an uncommon approach today. It is a more expensive anesthetic to provide and requires experience in its provision. But it is how I have and would treat my own family members.
Safety and great outcomes are influenced by specialist training, knowledge and experience. There are many general dentists who offer 'sedation dentistry' or 'sleep dentistry' but are not specialists in the area. When it comes to anesthesia and sedation dentistry, you may rather want a certified specialist with extensive experience.
I am Certified Specialist of Dental Anesthesiology with over 35 years experience and the confidence of more than 500 doctors who refer and entrust their patients, their family members and even themselves to my care. Prominent physicians and dentists have put their trust for their own treatment or their family in my care. The wisdom of their choice may help you confidently decide as well.
