If you avoid dental care because of deep-rooted fear, anxiety, or stress about going to the dentist, Wilkes Barre sedation dentist Dr. James DeFinnis wants you to know that you have options to soothe your fears and ease your mind. At Back Mountain Dental, Dr. DeFinnis offers a number of sedation dentistry treatments that he hopes will help you overcome your fear of the dentist and receive the dental care you need and deserve in 2012.
Overcoming Your Fears with Intravenous Sedation
As an expert of sedation dentistry, Dr. DeFinnis uses intravenous (IV) sedation to keep his patients comfortably sedated throughout their entire appointment. Unlike general anesthesia and other, more intense sedation methods, IV sedation allows you to remain in a sleep-like state, in which you are comfortable throughout your procedure, but still awake and fully responsive.
Whether you have a strong gag reflex, need a lot of dental work completed in one appointment, have a low pain tolerance, or suffer from a fear of the sounds and smells of dental work, sedation dentistry can keep you calm and comfortable as you “sleep” your way to the smile of your dreams.
Dr. DeFinnis and the Back Mountain Dental team are extremely trained and experienced when it comes to administering sedation. Throughout your procedure, your vital signs and comfort will be monitored to ensure your safety. You’re in good hands at Back Mountain Dental.
Put Dental Phobia Behind You in 2012
Because of fear of the dentist and dental phobia, a large percentage of Americans don’t receive the dental care they need to maintain a healthy mouth and healthy body. Your oral health has a direct impact on your overall well-being, and if you’re depriving your mouth of general dental checkups and cleanings, it’s likely that your body is not in optimal health either.
This year, make it your New Year’s resolution to overcome your dental fear. We’re here to help you every step of the way. To reserve an appointment for early 2012, call Back Mountain Dental, located in Trucksville, Pennsylvania, at (570) 763-4360.
