Is it possible to do IV sedation (twilight) instead of general anesthesia (unconscious) for impacted wisdom teeth?

In brief: Yes

Most oral surgeons i know do use IV sedation instead of general anesthesia for impacted wisdom teeth.
Which is the best way to go depends on how many teeth they are removing, how difficult they expect the procedure to be, and your personal preference. Speak to your oral surgeon about which option is best for you.
