Anesthesia was invented by dentists in the earlier part of the 19th century, and, since then, sedation dentistry has become a critical part of many dental procedures. Today’s technology makes it possible to perform both simple and complex procedures in an office setting while maintaining maximum patient comfort and safety. As the surgical specialists of the profession, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are extensively trained in all aspects of anesthesia administration and sedation dentistry techniques. The ability to provide patients with safe and effective anesthesia has distinguished the specialty since its inception.
