Unparalleled Skills

Dr. Glosenger received extensive, hands-on training in the safe administration of anesthesia at Ohio State, which is considered one of the top anesthesia training locations in the country. Here, he trained to perform both pediatric and adult anesthesia in both hospital and clinical settings. He gained knowledge about the safe administration of general anesthesia and IV sedation. Dr. Glosenger’s expertise in anesthesia allows him to safely administer a wide variety of anesthesia options to each patient, depending on their specific needs and surgical requirements.

Your Anesthesia Options

Some people avoid dental care because they suffer from dental phobias, a strong gag reflex, or have had a traumatic dental experience in the past. Our team understands these anxieties, and we are here to provide comfort and care every step of the way. During your consultation, Dr. Glosenger will discuss your options for anesthesia.

Your choice of anesthesia will depend on your anxiety level and the extent of your surgical procedure. Dr. Glosenger will explain your options clearly and help you select the right choice for your needs and comfort. Our office offers:

  • Local Anesthesia. Lidocaine is a numbing agent that is administered directly to the surgical site. It can be combined with other anesthesia options for more extensive surgeries.
  • Nitrous Oxide. More commonly known as laughing gas, this option is inhaled through a mask and will leave you feeling in a relaxed but conscious state. It also serves as a mild pain reliever.
  • IV Sedation. Intravenous (IV) sedation causes you to be in a relaxed state. It relieves pain and anxiety and usually causes you not to remember the experience.
  • General Anesthesia. This form of anesthesia is administered intravenously and will render you unconscious. You will sleep comfortably during your procedure and wake up when it is over.

Dr. Glosenger has received extensive training in the safe administration of these forms of anesthesia. When you visit our office for your oral surgery needs, you are in excellent hands with our doctor and his highly skilled staff. If you have questions about anesthesia or would like to learn about which type of anesthesia is right for your procedure, please contact our office.
