WHAT IS SEDATION AND GENERAL ANESTHESIA?
Certain complex procedures, anxious patients, and children require a more controlled and deeper level of sedation and anesthesia. The degree of anesthesia in such cases can vary between moderate-deep sedation and general anesthesia. Deep sedation reduces consciousness, pain and anxiety while maintaining the patient's ability to respond to commands. On the other hand, general anesthesia provides a temporary loss of consciousness which may be necessary in certain cases. Dr. Dashty is exceptionally well trained at providing all levels of anesthesia so that your dentist can fully focus on your oral surgical procedure. This allows for a safer, more predictable and comfortable experience for both the patient and the dentist.
IS IT SAFE?
Patient Safety is our ultimate goal. Dr. Dashty continually strives to provide his patients with an unparalleled level of safety. He has the most current, well maintained and organized anesthesia equipment in the industry. During his free time he reads extensively to maintain his knowledge of the most current advancements and treatment modalities in his field. You can rest assured that Dr. Dashty will provide you with a safe, controlled and hospital grade anesthetic experience in the comfort of your dentist's office.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING SURGERY?
Your anesthesiologist, Dr. Dashty, is responsible for your comfort and well-being and will continuously monitor you response to anesthesia and surgery. Monitoring devices will be attached, such as blood pressure cuff, an EKG, and pulse oximetry finger probe to monitor you oxygen level and several others for different parameters. Eyes and all pressure points will be protected, and the patient's body temperature is maintained within normal ranges at all times. For children, the mother and father can stay with their child until the child is comfortable and ready for his/her procedure.
