Pain Management During Oral Surgery
At Northern Nevada Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we open our doors to patients who seek to improve their oral health and regain confidence in their smiles. As a patient, you can expect to be involved in your treatment every step of the way. This includes the choice of anesthesia or sedation during your procedure, which we will discuss during your first visit to help select the right option for you.
Types of Anesthesia
There are three main types of anesthesia that we use at our practice:
Board-Certified Anesthesia Expert
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons must undergo a residency program following their dental degree. Dr. Galea attended the University of Louisville for his residency, and he earned his medical degree there. He gained hands-on experience caring for patients in a surgical setting, including how to safely administer all forms of anesthesia and sedation. Aside from anesthesiologists, oral surgeons are the only surgical experts qualified to administer anesthesia outside of a hospital facility.
When you come to Northern Nevada Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery for care, you can feel confident that Dr. Galea and Dr. Curtis have undergone extensive dental and medical training, as well as became board-certified, to provide the highest level of care to their patients.
