Anesthesia Options

Licensed and Trained to Administer All Forms of Sedation

Worry-Free, Calming Sedation Dentistry

For many of our patients undergoing a more complex oral surgery or periodontal procedure, general anesthesia or IV sedation is recommended. We know that receiving dental care can cause trepidation in some patients, so we offer calming sedation to help make your experiences with us as comfortable and painless as possible.

Dr. Reza Bolourian is a board-certified oral surgeon and medical doctor and has completed a 7-year hospital-based medical residency program, where he received the most extensive and highest attainable level of hands-on training in anesthesiology. He is licensed and trained to evaluate patients, deliver the appropriate levels of anesthetic, monitor its administration during surgery, and provide adequate follow-up care. This is all accomplished in our state-of-the-art office, which is equipped with a surgical suite equivalent to a hospital surgical facility. Dr. Bolourian is fully qualified to provide sedation dentistry and he will lead all aspects of your care in our office, including your initial consultation, treatment planning, surgery, and recovery.

Our Sedation Dentistry Options

Much of our care deals with complex surgery or traumatic injury care that require higher levels of sedation dentistry during procedures. However, some patients may not need comprehensive care and are simply unable to undergo treatment due to the severity of their dental phobia. Our team takes dental anxiety seriously and prioritizes creating an atmosphere of safety and comfort in our office, while providing education on your condition and walking you through every step of your treatment.

Local Anesthetic

Used to numb specific areas of the mouth for treatment, local anesthetic is used mainly for routine procedures, and can be combined with other sedation options.

IV Conscious Sedation

Patients who experience moderate to extreme anxiety can benefit from this option, which is administered intravenously and used when multiple treatments are necessary.


For more complex surgeries, general anesthesia is used to suppress all awareness and sensations of pain. Patients are in a state of total unconsciousness during treatment. Dr. Bolourian is uniquely qualified to administer general anesthesia and is trained to deliver the safest and most appropriate level of anesthesia for your needs.
