specialty-anesthesiaAs the surgical specialists of the dental profession, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are extensively trained in all aspects of anesthesia administration. The ability to provide patients with safe and effective anesthesia has distinguished the specialty since its inception. Today’s technology makes it possible to perform both simple and complex procedures in an office setting while maintaining maximum patient comfort and safety.

At ORA® Surgery and Implant Studio of Chicago Dr. Koos offers a full range of comfort levels with all office-based procedures for adults as well as children. At your consultation Dr. Koos will discuss the best anesthesia options for you depending on the complexity of your procedure and level of comfort required. Utilizing gentle medications that are well tolerated and quickly metabolized, allows for safe and comfortable procedures, with a quick and smooth recovery.

During your procedure, one or more of the following may be used to eliminate discomfort and anxiety: pre-appointment sedative medication, local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas),intravenous light sedation, and general anesthesia. Commonly, patients describe their feelings during procedures as comfortable and surprisingly pleasant.

  • Modern, clean and comfortable environment

    I was very pleased with my experience at ORA Oral Surgery. The office was very modern and clean. Dr. Koos explained the procedure to me as well as the risks and aftercare. The procedure itself was uneventful. The staff made me comfortable and Dr. Koos administered the anesthesia. When I woke up it was done. Dr. Koos called me at home that night to check up on me. I would recommend ORA to my friends for their dental needs.

  • Comfortable experience with easy recovery

    I had two molars extracted and it was the most comfortable experience I’ve ever had at a dentist/oral surgeon. The recovery was nearly none at all. I would definitely recommend ORA. Plus the Dr. called personally himself to check on me. He said if I had any questions to call him at anytime.

  • Pleasantly surprised by post-surgery follow up

    It was a pleasure to have straight forward information provided and constant follow up after my surgery. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Dr. Steven Koos late at night to make sure I was having a healthy recovery. And the cherry on top of the ice cream was how updated the office was. State of the art equipment that I had no doubt I was in good hands.

    Dr. Koos and his team ROCK! I remember the day I walked in to get a consultation done for the removal of all 4 of my wisdom teeth and how comfortable I felt when I first met him.

  • Absolute great experience!

    It was over before I knew it! Dr. Koos and his staff are so peaceful and the surgery/recovery area has an extremely calming aura. I am currently on day one after surgery and I have minimal pain & soreness, no swelling or excess bleeding. I will definitely be back for any of my future oral surgery needs!

  • Great Experience!

    I discovered ORA about 6 years ago when I had my wisdom teeth removed. I had such a great experience with Dr Koos and the team and immediately became a fan of ORA.

  • Earns my trust for comfort and care

    I had two implants, a sinus lift and one other procedure within the last year or so. I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Koos and his staff. I was well informed about my needs and next steps. And more importantly, all went well with very little discomfort. I’m usually a little skiddish when it comes to dental surgery and any associated pain. ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio earns my trust for comfort and care.
