Anaesthesia

What type of anaesthetic should I have?

Wisdom teeth and implant procedures may be performed using local anaesthetic (LA) injections, LA injections and intravenous (IV) sedation or a general anaesthetic (GA).

After discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each method with your dentist, the choice depends on the number and difficulty of your procedure, any existing medical problems, and your own preference.

Most procedures can be done with comfort by using either IV sedation and LA or GA and LA.

Both procedures can be performed at South Perth Surgicentre by Dr Mohan Rajalingam.
