Video: Tori - Exostosis Removal Surgery
Is it recommended that a patient be completely sedated when undergoing mantibular tori removal from inside lower jaw? ... Visitor from Honolulu
For most patients, yes. Oral sedation or IV sedation can make the treatment experience almost "forgettable" since the treatment time is often perceived as being only a few minutes.
Sedation also helps the jaw muscles to relax and can prevent the discomfort that is usually associated with having the jaws open for an extended period of time, especially
AFTER treatment has been completed.
Some patients do well with Oral Sedation while others prefer or are recommended to have IV Sedation (sleep dentistry).
