Sedation

Are You Nervous About Having Oral Surgery?

Nobody gets excited about having oral surgery.

Patients tell us every day how “nervous” or “anxious” they are about their surgery.

They tell us about their “heart racing” and “sweaty palms.”

Some patients have a difficult time sitting in our exam chair.

If this describes you, and you are anxious about having oral surgery, you are not alone.

Would You Like To Be Asleep For Your Surgery?

The first thing many of our patients ask is “can I be asleep for my surgery?”

In most cases, the answer is “yes.”

During your consultation, Dr. Kirk will evaluate your health history and medication list.

Sometimes, health conditions may prevent a patient from being sedated in the office.

If you cannot be sedated in the office, your surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis at the hospital.

Dr. Kirk will give you the options available to you at the time of your consultation.

We Understand

Our team understands your apprehension, and we work very hard to make your visits as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
