Our staff at A Smile 4 U are experienced and trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well-versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining you diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
How to Prepare for Sedation
You may not have anything to eat or drink (including water) for eight (8) hours prior to the appointment. No smoking at least 12 hours before surgery. Ideally, cut down or stop smoking as soon as possible prior to the day of surgery.
Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to erupt in the mouth. Occasionally, they contribute positively to one’s oral health, but in most cases wisdom teeth are misaligned and require removal.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dentists specializing in surgery of the mouth, face and jaws. After four years of dental school, surgeons receive four to seven years of hospital-based surgical and medical training, preparing them to do a wide range of procedures including all types of surgery of both the bones and soft tissues of the face, mouth and neck. We offer a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our Doctors can also diagnose facial pain, facial injuries and fractures.
