Why do I need to be sedated?Is I.V. conscious sedation safe?
I.V. conscious sedation is considered the safest of all forms of anesthesia. The patient is able to snooze through the procedure while maintaining his protective reflexes. Blood pressure, heart rhythm, and pulse are monitored throughout the procedure. Drs. Nunnally, Freeman, Owens, and Dorsey are certified in I.V. conscious sedation and have received extensive training in sedation and advanced cardiac life support.
Would you like me to send cone beam (CBCT) scans?
When beginning the process of having Nunnally, Freeman & Owens evaluate your dental needs, please send us a digital 2-D panoramic x-ray. The panoramic x-ray gives us a much quicker and much more simple image to evaluate and it greatly speeds the process of providing you with a treatment plan.
We will take a cone beam (CBCT) upon your arrival at our office. Cone beams taken elsewhere often do not open in our computer system and can result in an unnecessary expense and radiation exposure.
