At Northwest Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, many of the surgical procedures prescribed require the use of IV anesthesia to sedate and relax, as well as relieve pain for our patients. The board-certified oral surgeons at Northwest Oral & Maxillofacial are uniquely qualified to administer anesthesia because of their extensive education, training and clinical experience.

When administered and monitored by an anesthesia team led by a well-trained and highly skilled surgeon, all levels of sedation, up to and including general anesthesia, may be safely, comfortably and predictably provided to patients undergoing an office-based dental surgical procedure. As with any surgery, however, it is essential that patients, as key members of their healthcare team, take an active role in their treatment choices and ask the following questions before selecting a dental specialist and office for their procedure.
We understand that dealing with the loss of one or more teeth can cause anxiety for our patients. Whether a tooth has been lost to injury, neglect, improper dental hygiene, dental caries or gum disease, it is important to replace the tooth (or teeth) in order to restore functionality and appearance. At Northwest Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, patients are typically referred to us by general dentists who have diagnosed a condition which requires a surgical treatment, usually an extraction of one or more diseased teeth. Once the tooth (or teeth) is surgically extracted, how will it be replaced? Without a doubt, the best replacement option is a dental implant.
