As an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Peak has undergone intensive anesthesiology training, spending more than a year administering anesthesia as part of a required hospital residency. He has also maintained certification in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), and anesthesia administration. With these qualifications, Dr. Peak is committed to providing each of our patients with safe and compassionate surgical care.

Based upon rigid quality standards, our team offers sedation and anesthesia services that are designed to keep you comfortable, and we adhere to strict continuing education guidelines to keep you safe.

According to your health, preferences, and your anticipated surgical procedure, we offer the following sedation and anesthesia services:

Local Anesthetic: Local anesthetics such as lidocaine can be administered directly to the proposed surgical location. Local anesthetics will numb the teeth and the soft tissues, and can be used in conjunction with other forms of anesthesia for a more comfortable surgical experience. An area that has been numbed with local anesthetics may remain so for several hours after surgery.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation: Nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as laughing gas) and oxygen are administered through a soft nose mask. Soon after these gases are inhaled, you can expect to feel increasingly relaxed while remaining fully conscious. Nitrous oxide produces a gentle sedative and pain- relieving effect in a manner that is safe and well-tolerated by patients of all ages.

IV Anesthesia: Both light sedation and deep sedation can be achieved through the use of IV anesthesia. When medications are delivered intravenously, the sedative effect is fast-acting, and patients will have no memory of the surgical procedure. The level of sedation can be easily controlled by Dr. Peak to ensure that each patient remains in a relaxed and peaceful state throughout the procedure.

Planning For Sedation Dentistry and Anesthesia

The sedatives and anesthetics that are right for you will depend upon the discussion that takes place between you and Dr. Peak. The state of your health, your level of tolerance for dental treatment, and the type of oral surgery that has been planned will all help to determine the most appropriate course of action.

Ultimately, we pledge to provide you with an exceptionally safe and pleasant surgical experience. To explore your sedative and anesthetic alternatives, please call to schedule a consultation today.
