At Back Mountain Dental, Dr. James DeFinnis uses IV sedation to provide his patients with a comfortable, anxiety-free dental experience.
What is IV sedation?
IV sedation is a technique used by specially trained dentists to keep patients comfortably sedated throughout dental appointments. Unlike general anesthesia, which is also delivered intravenously, IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation in which the patient remains fully responsive.
Is IV sedation safe?
IV sedation is very safe and very effective. Dr. DeFinnis has completed advanced training specifically designed to increase the safety and effectiveness of the sedation and has been certified and licensed by the state. Your vital signs will be constantly monitored from moment Dr. DeFinnis begins to administer your sedation until you are completely conscious and ready to leave the office.
If you suffer from dental fear or phobia or experience anxiety when you even think about going to the dentist, Dr. DeFinnis encourages you to call Back Mountain Dental at (570) 763-4360 to schedule a consultation with him. At this appointment, Dr. DeFinnis will encourage you to candidly share your thoughts, concerns, and prior dental experiences so that he can determine the best treatment for your unique needs. Don’t let your fear of the dentist hold you back from getting the care you need and deserve.
