Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor administers local anesthesia?

The doctor performing the surgery, either dentists, ophthalmologists or another surgeon will administer the local anesthetic.

2. How does a topical anesthetic work?

A topical anesthetic lessens the chance of inflammation or infection at the site.

3. Does inhalation sedation produce any side effects?

No; when administered properly inhalation sedation does not produce any side. The euphoric effect of the inhalation will wear off pretty much immediately after the gas supply is turned off.

4. What is twilight sedation?

Twilight sedation is also called sleep dentistry or IV sedation and uses an intravenously delivered sedative to induce a deeply relaxed, but still conscious, state.
