Morbidity and mortality (M&M) statistics have been used to determine the safety of pharmacosedation and general anesthesia for dental procedures.
Although relevant, these data often do not describe what actually caused the problems.
Descriptive data are needed to understand etiologic factors and to accurately set malpractice insurance rates, establish legislative regulations, and determine means of prevention.
The purpose of this study was to characterize the factors involved in causing M&M in a national data base of dental patients who received either pharmacosedation or general anesthesia.
