    HARTSDALE, NY, June 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There are a number of reasons why you might need oral surgery. Wisdom teeth extractions and dental implants in Hartsdale are just two examples. Whether the treatment is necessary or purely cosmetic, you will mostly likely need to get anesthesia in Hartsdale. However, if you've never had surgery before you might be wondering how anesthesia works. While there are several forms of anesthesia, Hartsdale Oral Surgeon, Dr. Paul Patella, will figure out the proper anesthesia to fit your dental needs.

"When oral surgery is recommended, it's not surprising that patients get a bit nervous. The idea of anesthesia can be a bit unnerving; however, we do what we can to talk our patients through the entire procedure so there are no surprises," says Dr. Patella, who offers dental anesthesia in Hartsdale. "There are several types of anesthesia, and we always share these options with all of our patients so they can be part of the decision-making process when it comes to their treatment plan."

Many people hear oral surgery and immediately think the experience will be painful and uncomfortable. On the contrary! Patients don't have to deal with any discomfort associated with oral surgery because anesthesia is administered prior to the procedure. "Depending on the procedure, we might just administer a local anesthetic or the patient might need IV sedation or even general," says Dr. Patella, who offers anesthesia in Hartsdale. "Either way, we make sure the patient is comfortable during the entire procedure."

Anesthesia comes in several forms, from local anesthesia and nitrous oxide (better known as "laughing gas") to IV sedation and general anesthesia. If you're having oral surgery in Hartsdale, Dr. Patella will help you decide which anesthesia is right for you and your medical needs. Dental anesthesia has become so common that it's has been utilized for some unique medical situations. When there are patients who have severe dental phobias, we can offer them mild sedation to make their visit easier. Just having this option makes our anxious patients more relaxed," says Dr. Patella.

While the primary focus is the surgical experience and successful outcome, Dr. Patella, who offers dental implants in Hartsdale, states that, "Post-treatment care is also a high priority. We sit down with all of our patients and inform them of not only what to expect during surgery but after as well. We make recommendations and advise them of things to avoid, like smoking or drinking alcohol. We also give them specific instructions for post surgical care." Following your dentist's advice after anesthesia will make your next oral surgery in Hartsdale smooth and easy.
