Many patients experience anxiety during their dental exams and procedures. These patients can be treated in a safe and comfortable manner employing either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Jahromi will provide safe and convenient anesthesia services in the comfort of your office. IV sedation and/or general anesthesia will provide total relaxation, erase memory of the procedure and allow even the most anxious patients to be treated successfully. As part of your dental team, Dr. Jahromi will conduct a complete review of the patient’s medical history, consulting with your patient’s physician if necessary.
I have been working with Dr. Jahromi for 12 years. I am thankful to have a truly amazing anesthesiologist who provides excellent general anesthesia services to my patients. She is truly the best anesthesiologist in the field and I highly recommend Dr. Jahromi for in-office sedation for pediatric and adult patients!

Thank you for your kindness and compassion, Dr. Jahromi. This is the first time that I have not had any nausea and pain after a dental surgery. Even my back pain is better today. I don’t know what you gave me but it was fantastic!

Many patients experience anxiety during dental procedures. Most dental procedures can be completed using local anesthesia, where the dentist injects the anesthetic directly into the tissue. However, for some patients, such as children, anxious adults, and patients with physical or developmental disabilities, local anesthetics may not be enough to maintain patient comfort and pain control. In these cases, IV sedation or general anesthesia may be recommended. This deeper sedation increases patient comfort and creates a more suitable working condition for your dentist so that he may be able to provide you with the best possible dental care.
Yes. Prior to your surgery, Dr. Jahromi will contact you to review your medical history and also answer any questions that you may have. Pre- surgical instructions will also be reviewed at this time.
In certain situations, Dr. Jahromi may contact your primary care physician to discuss medical issues that may be of particular importance to the delivery of safe and effective anesthesia. Blood tests, a chest X-ray or an EKG may be ordered to determine if you are a candidate for IV sedation or general anesthesia in the office setting or whether you would be better served having the procedure done in a hospital setting.
Dr. Jahromi uses hospital-grade monitors and anesthesia equipment to monitor your vital signs, which include your heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, SpO2 and temperature. She will utilize a wireless Bluetooth® pre-cordial stethoscope to listen to and monitor your breathing throughout the procedure and during the recovery period until you are awake and alert enough to be discharged to home.
Patients often feel sleepy and tired for several hours after the procedure and commonly rest through the remainder of the day. It is important to limit excessive or strenuous activity to allow your body to full recover. Children should avoid swimming, sports or playground activity for the remainder of the day. Some patients may also experience the following :
