What Kind of Dental Work Can Be Done Under Sedation?


Most dental procedures can be performed safely under sedation such as fillings, crowns, root canals, deep cleanings, extractions etc. The more important limiting factor is the amount of work that needs to be accomplished as the type of sedation will determine how much work can be completed. For example, more extensive work can be performed acceptably and much safer under IV sedation versus oral sedation or laughing gas. The type of sedation prescribed to the patient is based on medical history of the patient, level of anxiety and the amount of dental work needed!
