General Anesthesia for Dentistry
General Anesthesia and Conscious IV Sedation are available on-site at Advanced DDS. Our dentists are New York State licensed in conscious IV sedation. These unique services are used primarily on patients with dental phobia. However, there are a small percentage of people of whom sedation doesn’t work for, either because they have a very high tolerance to drugs used for IV sedation or they are uncooperative even when sedated. In these cases, general anesthesia is the best option for these patients.
