Types of Anesthesia

Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery offers several types of anesthesia.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia works by blocking the sensation of discomfort. It is administered locally to the site and is commonly used with nitrous oxide.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask and used to reduce or relieve feelings of anxiety for the patient. It is commonly known as laughing gas and can be used with local anesthesia.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation/General Anesthesia

Intravenous (IV) sedation allows the patient to enter a sleep-like state throughout the procedure. The patient is resting and comfortable throughout the procedure. Since one of the most common side effects of the medicine is amnesia, many patients do not remember their procedure.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is for patients who require surgery that is extensive or complicated. General anesthesia means that the patient is completely unconscious for the procedure.
