Is intravenous anesthesia safe?
YES. Intravenous anesthesia is safe if performed by a licensed professional. That is why Endodontic Specialists use the services of Anesthesilogist, diplomate of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology for all of our IV sedation patient needs.
They are responsible for the continuous anesthesia management, comfort, and care of the dental patient.
The anesthesiologists utilize the most up-to-date medicines, monitoring, and equipment in order to provide quality anesthesia care.
