- 1. ADVANCED LOCAL ANESTHETIC TECHNIQUES
For some patients, getting a tooth or section of teeth numb can be extremely difficult. Dentist anesthesiologists are sometimes called upon to use advanced techniques to help establish profound numbness in these difficult situations.
- 2. ANXIOLYTIC SEDATION
Patients who are only mildly anxious frequently benefit from the use of anxiolytic sedative techniques to help cope with dental stresses.
- 3. MODERATE (CONSCIOUS) SEDATION
Those patients that are moderately anxious, but still desire to remain awake for the dental care choose moderate sedation techniques to help insulate themselves from dental stress.
- 4. DEEP SEDATION/GENERAL ANESTHESIA
When large amounts of invasive dental care, pre-cooperative age or special needs prevent patients from sitting comfortably for care, deep sedation and/or general anesthesia is used to help cope with these stresses. This, in turn, allows the patient to sleep soundly throughout the entire procedure, void of all sounds, odors or pain.
