If your car were dirty, in bad repair, and near falling apart, would you be embarrassed to let your mechanic work on it? If you had serious heart problems, would you be embarrassed to consult with a cardiologist?
A 2004 study showed that many people avoid dental care because of embarrassment over poor oral health. Did you experience a painful or traumatic dental procedure years ago, and you’ve not seen a dentist since? If so, your teeth have probably become less than perfect. You may suffer with gum disease, tooth decay, missing or loose teeth, and bad breath. Don’t let the state of your oral health today become a bigger hurdle than your bad dental experience. If you can put both aside just long enough to call me, Dr. Jamie DeFinnis, at 570.763.4360, I can help you. I want to help you!
As a sedation dentist, I provide medication to soothe people who feel scared, anxious, or stressed in a dentist’s office. With oral or intravenous (IV) sedation dentistry, your fears will be relieved, and you’ll remain comfortable throughout dental procedures. Most of my patients remember little or nothing about their visit the following day.
Don’t let your embarrassment or fear stand between you and good health. A healthy mouth will negatively affect your overall health and wellbeing, as well as your self-confidence. To talk with me about sedation dentistry, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 570.763.4360. My team and I understand your feelings and concerns, and we want to help you.
