[00:00:05.760] Sedation and general anesthesia. [00:00:08.920] Here we do offer sedation. We do not offer general anesthesia. [00:00:12.880] Sedation is like a state of a twilight sleep in which the patient is put. [00:00:19.120] It's the most comfortable state in which the patient could be [00:00:23.720] in order to undergo dental treatment without the anxiety. [00:00:28.840] Sedation is used in several scenarios. [00:00:32.000] When the patient has a lot of work that they want to get done at once, [00:00:37.600] we can use sedation, also with a certain type of procedure [00:00:40.440] that are a little bit more invasive, such as implants, dentistry or surgeries. [00:00:47.000] Not all dentists can provide sedation or general anesthesia. [00:00:51.960] You have to have a training, which I had back in 2020. [00:00:57.160] I had advanced training in sedation, [00:00:59.800] in IV oral conscious sedation and in IV sedation.
