Lidocaine is commonly used for simple procedures. It’s a local anesthesia that prevents pain and is used in combination with other anesthetics.
When meeting with your surgeon, she may suggest general anesthesia for medical reasons or complexity of the considered maxillofacial surgery. The procedure will be done at CSSS de Hull.
Specialized in oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Théberge has the training and medical knowledge to safely administer intravenous sedation for your procedure and this, within the calm and comforting environment of her clinic. When an intravenous sedative is given, continuous monitoring is done throughout the whole procedure. This sedative will reduce your anxiety (anxiolysis) and make you unconscious. The administered medication is recognized in the medical field as being very safe. It is important to follow the instructions for an «asleep» surgical procedure.
It’s simple, your well-being and safety are our top priorities throughout every stage: from the initial information meeting to your complete recovery.
