Federal Court prohibits use of drug anesthesia by dentists

A Federal Court decision changed a procedure considered risky and generally carried out in dental offices. This change refers to anesthesia that uses controlled medications, in which the patient remains unconscious throughout the procedure.

Furthermore, he stated that he is willing to improve techniques with the aim of ensuring patient safety. And, he has not yet commented on the process.
