Luzerne County, Pennsylvania (January 11, 2013) – Wilkes Barre and Scranton dentist Dr. James DeFinnisof Back Mountain Dental is offering intravenous (IV) sedation dentistry to all patients who are suffering from dental phobia and feeling anxious about dental visits and treatments. Interested individuals can rely on Dr. James DeFinnis for a safe and effective dental treatment through monitored anesthesia treatment.
IV sedation, which involves the injection of a sedative through the vein of a conscious patient throughout the entire treatment, is considered as a much safer technique compared to the conventional oral magic pill or twilight anesthetics. It also benefits nervous patients whose condition requires complex dental treatment, such as full mouth restoration and wisdom tooth extraction.
In addition, it is highly important for patients who are new to this dental method to determine if the dentist is certified by the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) to perform IV conscious sedation.
Dr. James DeFinnis understands that the patient’s utmost comfort and safety must be prioritized. Hence, he completed extensive medical training in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) as well as an American Dental Association accredited post graduate program, in addition to acquiring hospital-based practice in IV sedation using advanced monitoring equipment.
As a certified sedation dentist, Dr. James DeFinnis performs every dental procedure according to each patient’s individual needs while ensuring that they are in a relaxed and calm state of mind as they sit on the dental chair and even after the treatment has been completed.
Besides sedation, the practice also offers general and cosmetic dentistry services. To schedule an appointment with Dr. DeFinnis, call or come by his office at 210 Carverton Road, Trucksville, PA. To learn more about the practice, visit Back Mountain Dental in Shavertown, PA.
