Types of Wisdom Tooth Removal Anesthesia

Why Do I Need Wisdom Teeth Removal?

In some cases, a wisdom tooth grows in normally and the extraction procedure, if deemed necessary, is fairly straightforward. However, in many cases, the wisdom teeth do not fully develop, remain impacted in the soft tissue or bone and require extraction so they do not cause other serious problems like infection, damage to the neighboring teeth or chronic pain. The complexity of the procedure depends on the condition of your wisdom teeth—specifically where they are in relation to the soft tissue, bone, neighboring teeth and sinus.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

If you’re concerned about wisdom teeth extraction pain, it may help to understand the type of anesthesia used for wisdom teeth removal. The Wisdom Teeth Guys use Intravenous (IV) Sedation.

The surgical team will closely monitor your medication, breathing, temperature and blood pressure. You generally will have no  or little memory of the procedure. A licensed anesthesia professional, generally a CRNA (certified nurse anesthetist), will administer your anesthesia.

Our doctors and anesthesia professionals will do everything they can do to keep you pain-free during and after treatment.
