Abstract

The cases of twenty-four patients who underwent genioplasties either under deep intravenous (IV) sedation in a dental office or under general anesthesia in a surgical center were reviewed. A cost comparison of this operation in these two environments showed that it was twice as expensive to have the same procedure done in an outpatient surgical suite under general anesthesia as it was in a private office under IV sedation.
