 What makes a treatment "experimental"?

What is the process for the FDA deeming a treatment to be standard (that is,
no longer experimental)?  Does it depend on the cure rate or the risk of the
procedure as compared to standard accepted procedures?   Some combination of
the two (low risk/high cure)?  Number of years procedure has been in use?
Total sample size of all trials?  

Thanks in advance,
