Many people have phobia to go to the dentist due to the pain and discomfort during exposure in high-frequency noise from dental machine. This is more common in children, sensitive patients and patients who receive tooth implantation. In the past, the dentists can only ask the parents to force their children to receive the dental treatment. For adult patients, the dentist would ask them to tolerate the discomfort. In recent years, with the improvement of anesthesia and analgesia, dental sedation is much more comfortable through target controlled infusion pump (TCI pump) with diprivan. Despite the anesthetic procedures are already mature, dental sedation is not commonly accepted by general public due to high cost. In this study, we will evaluate whether we can expand the dental sedation market by reducing the cost for anesthesia treatment.
