Anesthesia

We recognize that even hearing the word “surgery” makes some people feel anxious. We want your procedure to be as pleasant as possible, and offer a full range of anesthesia for your comfort.

Dr. Engel has extensive training in all types of anesthesia and is certified by the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology. His training and experience, combined with state-of-the-art monitoring systems, ensures your safety.

Many patients require or choose a form of anesthesia such as nitrous oxide analgesia (laughing gas), oral sedation, intravenous conscious sedation, intravenous deep sedation or general anesthesia. The ability to provide our patients with safe, effective outpatient, office-based anesthesia has distinguished the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for decades. Our practice offers the most modern choices for anesthesia in a comfortable, safe environment. The anesthetics are administered by Dr. Engel   with the assistance of his experienced staff. Patient safety is our top priority.

The entire surgical staff at East Lyme Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, LLC are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in administration of IV sedation and surgery.  All personnel are CPR certified and Dr. Engel is a certified instructor in CPR and ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support).

The choice of anesthesia that meets your needs will be discussed in detail during your consultation visit. Please be sure to ask questions. We are committed to your comfort and well being.

After all, your health and peace of mind are always our primary concerns.
