Many people avoid multiple annual dental visits by scheduling regular, six-month checkups and cleanings to keep their mouths healthy. However, if fear and stress have kept you from preventive dental care, your mouth may need restoration. As a Pennsylvania sedation dentist, I understand dental fear, phobia, stress, and anxiety. Whether you feel anxious just walking into a dentist’s office, you don’t like a dentist’s hands and tools in your mouth, or you’re scared of dental procedures, sedation dentistry can put your mind, and body, at ease.
I’m Dr. James DeFinnis, and I invite you to call or email me to talk about your concerns. I know they’re real. Together, you and I will find a way for you to enjoy comfortable and rewarding dental visits. Then, once your mouth returns to full health, we can put you on a regular recall schedule for preventive dentistry.
At checkups and cleanings, my team and I gently but thoroughly examine all parts of the mouth: teeth, gums, jaws, and other soft tissues. We look for early signs of problems. In many cases, changing how you brush and floss, using recommended homecare products, or changing a few habits can reduce your risk for serious oral health problems.
My hope is to help you achieve great oral health, then keep it for life.
Don’t worry. Let’s talk. Call 570-763-4360 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let’s talk about how we can change your mind about dentistry. Back Mountain Dental provides IV sedation and oral sedation for people in the Scranton and Wilkes-Barre area.
