Sedation

At PM Oral Surgery, we offer a number of sedation options to ease patient apprehension about surgical procedures, including local anaesthetic with or without intravenous (IV) sedation and general anaesthetic.

Local anaesthetic

Local anaesthetic is administered when the patient is completely conscious and awake throughout a procedure. Local anaesthetic is injected into the area where the surgery is to be performed. Commonly, minor soft tissue procedures and simple tooth extractions may be carried out by local anaesthetic.

IV sedation

Intravenous sedation (IV sedation) is the administration of medication through the intravenous line. It allows the patient to fall sleep before a procedure, being continuously monitored throughout. Commonly, IV sedation may be used for more involved procedures such as wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant surgery. Learn more about IV sedation by downloading our service flyer here.

General anaesthetic

General anaesthetic is administered for extensive oral surgical procedures, such as TMJ surgery and reconstructions and may be necessary for patients with pre-existing medical conditions, such as heart or lung disease. PM Oral Surgery admits their patients to Strathfield Private Hospital and Sydney Private Hospital in Ashfield.
