“Sedation dentistry is one of the most effective ways to help put an anxious patient at ease. Using pharmacological devices like inhaled anesthesia, a sedation dentist supervises the effects of sedation on his or her patient. In cases where anxiety is high, the patient is allowed to lose consciousness (sleep dentistry) during the entire procedure.
The patient goes through a series of assessments before the sedation dentist creates a treatment plan. Comfort, and above all, safety, are paramount. Seek a skilled Philadelphia sedation dentist like Thomas DeFinnis, DMD of Wynnewood Dental Arts, to help put your mind at ease during a procedure.”
