Home Surgical Instructions What to Expect

Before you undergo any procedure at our office, you’ll have a comprehensive consultation appointment with your surgeon.  This provides valuable one-on-one time for your surgeon to evaluate your x-rays, perform a comprehensive examination, review your referring doctor’s treatment plan, and consider all possible solutions to your condition.

It also provides time for the two of you to discuss concerns, questions, and pre- and post-surgery instructions.  Topics discussed include your sedation preferences, what to expect throughout your treatment, anticipated surgical results, and any other topics of concern.

We want your treatment at MOSAIC Maxillofacial Surgical Arts & Implant Centers to be as comfortable and straightforward as possible.  Below are brief highlights of the services we provide.  Please review them, and be sure to write down any questions you have so that we may address them during your consultation appointment.


Minimize Discomfort and Anxiety

MOSAIC offers our patients the option of intravenous sedation, also referred to as IV sedation or IV anesthesia.  IV sedation helps you to be as comfortable as possible throughout your procedure.  It significantly reduces the pain and anxiety associated with your procedure.

Mitchell, Mehta, Young & Landrian have received extensive training in the evaluation of patients and administration of anesthetics.  During residency training time is spent with the medical anesthesiology and general surgery services.  Drs.
