Unnecessary: All that is really necessary is local anesthesia. Nitrous oxide\oxygen analgesia is a nice adjunct to use for apprehensive patients. This should be discussed with the surgeon prior to the procedure. Iv sedation adds cost and possible complications but if you and your dentist feel you need it, by all means consider it.
