Wilkes Barre Family Dentist Dr. James C. DeFinnis

Why Patients who have tried Oral Sedation for their dental fear come to us for Wilkes Barre IV Sedation

  • Oral sedation is not suitable for most dental phobic’s, patients needing full mouth restoration  
  • Oral sedation is not as effective as IV sedation or Sleep sedation and only IV sedation is anesthesiology supported and approved
  • Patients have higher probability of a bad experience as procedures are NOT “painless” as sometimes advertised
  • It’s not possible to get comprehensive full mouth of restorations completed in one appointment
  • Dentists administering oral sedation typically are only trained during a weekend class and some have no training at all to provide oral sedation.  

I am certified to perform IV conscious sedation and have had extensive medical training to perform IV Sedation dentistry for patients in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA area.
