IV Sedation Dentistry


IV Sedation Dentistry

There are many reasons why a lot of people despise going to the dentist. Some had traumatic experiences as children, others had to endure dental pains as adults, while many are simply fearful due to the unfair mindset established by the media or people around them. Whatever the reasons are, many are not getting the dental care they need as a result of the anxieties they have.
Through IV sedation dentistry, we at Back Mountain Dental provide a way for patients to receive the dental care they need despite their anxieties. A trained and experienced sedation dentist, Dr. James DeFinnis, DMD along with his reliable staff provide safe and effective treatments. Whether it’s extensive teeth cleaning or a major procedure like dental implants, our IV sedation method allows our patients to receive treatment in the most comfortable state possible.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

One of the biggest benefits of sedation dentistry is that it allows patients to receive majority, if not all, of the treatments they require in one appointment. Long and complex dental procedures that normally require multiple visits can be reduced to one or two, with no anxiety, pain, or even memory of the procedure. Not only is this beneficial for those who are fearful of visiting the dentist, but also to those with busy schedules and do not have the time to spare for multiple appointments.
Sedation dentistry is also beneficial in that it effectively minimizes any unexpected movements from patients. These movements are common and are usually just natural physical reactions to the dental procedure, but by having them minimized, the dentist is able to complete the treatment faster but with a smaller chance for error.
