    I do mostly GA because that was a big part of my training. If IV sedation is working well for you, then that is fine. I will do sedation, rather than GA for an older patient or one with many medical problems. But, for a healthy patient under 60, GA is my standard level of anesthesia.
    I used to use panoramic for 3rd molars and only got a CBCT if teeth were close to the mandibular nerve, sinus, or unusually rotated. I realized that most patients ended up getting both, for those indications I just mentioned. So, I changed my routine for CBCT to be the standard radiograph for all impacted teeth.
