Many people suffer from dental anxiety and/or dental phobia. Most of this is due to poor dental experiences as a child. People over the age of 40 are mostly effected by this because they did not have the benefit of local anesthesia as a child that is prevalent today. As a result, they may have suffered through dental procedures, making them too nervous to have any additional treatment done now.
My staff and I provide extra special care in dealing with patients who have dental anxiety and dental phobic patients. We pride ourselves in providing as much comfort to patients as we can throughout their entire dental experience. One way in which we do this is through oral sedation. We can prescribe an anti-anxiety pill for the patient to take the day before and the day of the treatment. Another way that we provide comfort in a more advanced way is through intravenous conscious sedation.
According to the standards of the State of Pennsylvania, a patient is monitored appropriately by a dental assistant and myself. Medications such as Versed and Fentanyl are utilized for light conscious sedation through an IV in the arm. I have been providing sedation in my office for 17 years now.
We also specialize in the treatment of periodontal diseases and the placement of dental implants for missing teeth. If you have any questions please call our office at 610-770-1050.
