Anesthesia in Northern Virginia

Dr. LaBriola, Dr. Haron, Dr. Jackson, and Dr. Zadeh have each received extensive training and have years of experience in a wide variety of anesthetic techniques designed to make your surgical experience both safe and comfortable. Patients in good health may select techniques ranging from nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Patients having more complex procedures, such as multiple extractions or removal of impacted teeth, frequently prefer intravenous sedation and/or general anesthesia. Patients will be continuously monitored using the latest equipment, and our doctors are trained in basic and advanced life support. Patients requesting sedation/general anesthesia may not eat or drink for six hours prior to their appointment, and will need an escort present in the office to drive them home. When scheduling your appointment, please notify us of any medical problems or medications being used so that we can determine whether sedation/general anesthesia can be utilized.

What is local anesthetic?

An injection into the gum surrounding the tooth that numbs the surgical area, much like a routine anesthetic your dentist gives before a filling.

What is nitrous oxide-oxygen?

Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” this is designed to relax you for the procedure.

What is sedation?

For increased relaxation, you may be given a sedative (either in pill form or by IV).

What is general anesthesia?

In this approach, you are put to sleep completely during your surgical procedure. After a recovery period in our dedicated recovery area, you may go home. We require that an escort be present in the office to drive you home.

Will I need to take time off from work?

In most cases, it is necessary for patients to take off the day following surgery to recover. You should also avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours. Depending on the type of anesthetic used, you may be unable to drive for a period of time (12 hours for intravenous sedation and for 24 hours for general anesthetic).

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

Very professional and knowledgeable staff. I would 100% recommend this practice. The staff very thoroughly communicated with us, not only about the procedures, but also about the billing. I felt like my son was in the best hands for his wisdom teeth extraction. Thank you for making this a smooth process!

My son recently got his wisdom teeth extracted. Dr. Zaheh made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed. The procedure did not last long at all which led to a quick recovery. My son had absolutely no swelling which was unbelievable! He hardly experienced any pain either. He went out with friends a few days later and will recommend others to Dr. Zadeh!

Had not had a tooth pulled in about 50 years so really could not remember what to expect. Things went pretty smoothly I’m pleased to report. Was sorry to hear that BC/BS stopped covering tooth extractions in 2015! Glad to have the infected tooth out of my mouth…appreciate being taken by your practice on short notice.

Unfortunately we had to be seen for an emergency situation. Dr. Haron was very thorough with informing us of what was to be expected. He was spot on with what happened and what he told us to expect. His calm, gentle demeanor was quite settling for us.

I am very glad that I was recommended to this OMFS dental office for my wisdom teeth extractions. I had made the decision early that morning that I would opt out of sedation, so I was very nervous going in. The staff eased my nerves tremendously by educating me about the procedure and letting me know that it was only going to take 20-30 minutes –and they were right. Now it’s 2 days aft…

I have been a patient for many years. Whenever I have needed a tooth removed I have gone to them. My experience has been pain free during the procedure and very little pain or swelling after. I would highly recommend the doctors at Northern Virginia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates.

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Zadeh. I was very nervous because this was my first surgery ever. All of the staff was was great and explained every step including the sedation process and aftercare instructions. Before I took any medication, my pain was a 3/4 out of 10. This was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this practice.
