Control freak. It’s a term that has negative implications, but when we consider the type of people who are accustomed to being in control of things – at work, at home, socially – we quickly realize that the term describes a group of intelligent, successful individuals. Oftentimes, these leaders hold respected positions in their professional field and in their community. People who excel at being in control are necessary for our society to function well. We need strong, reliable leaders.
However, these same leaders may feel out of control, and thus scared and uncomfortable, at the dentist’s office. As a sedation dentist, Dr. DeFinnis wants you to know, you can retain complete control in his Back Mountain, PA dentist office.
You Plan Your Dental Treatment
Dr. DeFinnis can show you x-rays, digital images, videos, illustrations, and models as he explains his findings regarding your oral health. He will encourage you to ask questions about treatment options, weigh your options, and consider all aspects of your treatment plan. When you understand your situation, you can make informed decisions for treatment. Dr. DeFinnis respects his patients and will never do anything outside your treatment plan without your prior consent. Once you have determined the best course of treatment, you have the option of being sedated during your clinical visits.
You Plan Your Sedation
Would you like to be medicated during your procedure? With IV sedation, Dr. DeFinnis can ease your mind and body, then perform the agreed upon treatments that you chose. You’ll be mentally and physically prepared before dental sedation and before treatment begins. And even while you’re under IV sedation, you won’t be “under.” Most people who opt for IV sedation (twilight sedation) don’t remember the sights and sounds during their dental treatment, but rest assured, you’ll retain the ability to express your thoughts and respond to Dr. DeFinnis throughout your visit. You’ll be in the driver’s seat!
