In Office Sedation from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral Surgeon in Harrisonburg
At All Smiles Harrisonburg we know that dentistry can be difficult for our patients for a variety of reasons. Dr. Klamut may recommend a sedation option for his patient depending on the complexity of the procedure, or based on the anxiety level of his or her patient, or in the event that a patient is not able to become completely numb. We are proud to be able to offer multiple sedation options to accommodate all types of patients. These options include: Nitrous Oxide, better known as laughing gas, conscious sedation and general anesthesia. Dr. Klamut has been providing anesthesia to his oral surgery patients for thirty years, so you can have a variety of sedation options available to you.
Types of Sedation

Nitrous Oxide, better known as laughing gas, is a form of light anesthesia that is effective in adults and children. The American Dental Association recognizes Nitrous Oxide as a safe and effective way to manage pain and anxiety in dentistry. This type of anesthesia is administered through breathing a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask. Dr. Klamut may recommend this option of anesthesia if his or her patient has mild anxiety about the procedure.

Conscious Sedation is a moderate form of anesthesia that relaxes the patient but the patient does not fall completely asleep during the procedure. A patient who chooses conscious sedation may or may not remember the procedure after it is completed. Dr. Klamut offers the latest techniques in comfort options by using a paste to numb a patient’s arm before the IV placement, so that the IV placement will be felt minimally or possibly not felt at all.

General Anesthesia allows the patient to be unconscious during the entire procedure. The patient will not remember the procedure upon waking up which makes this a great sedation option for complex procedures, for nervous patients and for young children who are non-compliant without sedation. Dr. Klamut offers the latest techniques in comfort options by using a paste to numb a patient’s arm before the IV placement, so that the IV placement will be felt minimally or possibly not felt at all. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons recognizes general anesthesia, administered by oral and maxillofacial surgeons and their anesthesia teams, as an integral part of oral surgery practice for more than 50 years. The record of safety with this form of outpatient anesthesia supports the concept that the operator/anesthesia team is a safe, efficient, and cost-effective model for surgical and anesthesia care. These techniques are safe when used by oral and maxillofacial surgeons who have completed an accredited oral and maxillofacial residency program with formal training in anesthesiology, of which Dr. Klamut has completed and been accredited.
