The Advanced Sedation Dentistry Practice

In office IV/moderate sedation is NOT for everyone of course.

Aside from those who just are not bothered by dental treatment there are patients with medical/health issues that should not have IV sedation. Patient's with ASA status III should only be seen in a hospital setting. Patients that cannot get an escort; patient's that cannot walk up a flight of stairs.
