As an oral surgery specialist, Dr. Craig Thiede is certified to provide multiple levels of sedation options in our Tustin, CA practice. Depending on your past experiences and the type of procedures you have planned, we can provide customized relaxation options for you to choose from, including IV sedation, general anesthesia, nitrous oxide, or local anesthetic. Not all dentists are trained or licensed to provide IV sedation or general anesthesia within their practice. But as a surgical expert, Dr. Thiede is able to offer safe and effective solutions to our patients with dental anxiety. With over three decades of experience in oral health, Dr. Thiede has had years to enhance the level of care and services available to our oral surgery patients. Because your comfort is extremely important to us, we make it possible for you to select the type of sedation dentistry that’s best for your concerns and lifestyle, whether it’s gentle laughing gas (nitrous oxide) or deeper general/IV sedation.
Local anesthetic is used in each case, to minimize any form of discomfort during your treatment, regardless of how simple or complex it may be.
Why Consider Sedation Dentistry?
Dr. Thiede provides trustworthy options that keep your safety and comfort in mind at all times. Whether you prefer to be relaxed but aware of what’s going on, or feel as if you’re sleeping throughout the entire process (general anesthesia or IV sedation) we can help you achieve the level of dental sedation that you’re looking for.
Because we are a specialty oral surgery clinic, we’re able to provide deeper levels of dental sedation options than what are available within a family or general practice setting. Our medical and IV sedation resources make it possible to provide such services to patients of a variety of ages and medical backgrounds, including young children.
