Sedation Dentist in Scranton, PA Helps Quell Patients’ Dental Anxiety


Moderate sedation is similar to the intravenous (IV) sedation procedure offered by an experienced dentist in Scranton, PA such as Dr. James C. DeFinnis. As the name implies, IV sedation is delivered via an injection to the back of the hand or arm. People who are sedated this way remain somewhat conscious throughout the procedure though do not feel any pain. However, those who have some breathing problems should inform their dentist about it at once, because they would have to wear an oxygen mask during the procedure. This is a minor inconvenience, though, given the prevalence of dental anxiety not only in the country, but also the rest of the world.

Dental anxiety isn’t exactly similar to the fear of going to the dentist, however. As the CWRU study reveals, some people simply feel uncomfortable about being strapped to a chair with limited freedom, while others do not like the numbing feeling they get from anesthetics.
