Painless Oral Surgery At North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery


Most people think that oral surgery consists of many different types of procedures that all have one thing in common: pain. When you come in to have your oral surgery procedure, Dr. Frank will ensure that everything goes smoothly and painlessly because he is among the elite in the Chicago area for administering sedation for oral surgery. Numerous types of oral surgery require sedation to eliminate pain, and you will want a surgeon who knows the right kind and just the right amount to make you feel comfortable.

Depending on the person and the type of procedure that is being performed, we can offer different levels of sedation. Going to a practice that doesn’t offer different levels of sedation could make for an unpleasant, even painful, experience. Why risk more pain that you have to when you can be reassured of your comfort with Dr. Frank and North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?

Why We Are An Elite Sedation Dentistry Office

Oral and maxillofacial surgery involves using anesthesia or other medication to put you at ease during your procedure. This must be done carefully, and the doctor must have a confident grasp on the amount of anesthesia he or she is giving to a patient. Dr. Frank specializes in oral surgery, so he deals with anesthesia on a daily basis. Because Dr. Frank has received the necessary training in sedation during surgery, we offer all levels of sedation:

Oral sedation – May be an alternative option to local anesthesia. It is medication taken orally to put you into a relaxed state before operation.

Nitrous oxide – Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is used in tandem with local anesthesia as well as the sedation choices below. You will be completely relaxed and less aware of your surroundings, but you’ll remember your procedure.

IV sedation – A medicine given to you through IV into your arm or hand. This causes complete relaxation but will not render you unconscious. However, you will remember little to nothing about the procedure.

General anesthesia – General anesthesia is also given in the form of an IV. This medication results in the complete loss of consciousness, so you will not remember any of the surgery and will need more time for the sedation effects to wear off. General anesthesia is known for having an excellent safety record for an office procedure but can also be used within a hospital setting.

If you wish to improve your oral health through oral and maxillofacial surgery, you will be assured the utmost comfort to the point of complete relaxation. During your treatment in our comfortable office, our well-trained staff will ease you through whatever procedure you’re having done. If that isn’t enough to make you feel relaxed about your surgery, we have TVs, cookies, and other amenities to make your visit stress-free.
