During your initial consultation, we will begin with a comprehensive medical history designed to help recommend the safest and most effective anesthesia for your operation. Your anesthesia plan will involve a local anesthetic (numbing shots), likely combined with IV sedation. IV sedation is a safe and effective way to minimize anxiety and give you a great experience during oral surgery procedures. Dr. Draper and Dr. Gibbins are licensed in dentistry and medicine, along with being certified to administer sedation medication. All staff members at Trinity Valley Oral Surgery are trained and certified in BLS (Basic Life Support) and have years of experience in assisting IV sedation procedures. If you have health issues, a medical clearance may be required by our surgeons before you are able to undergo anesthesia. Rest assured, you will always be in great hands with a staff that truly cares about you and your safety.
