Do you experience any of these conditions when you find yourself faced with the idea of going to the dentist’s office for treatment?
- Difficulty thinking clearly
- Fast, irregular breathing/hyperventilating
- Shaking that can’t be controlled or calmed
These are all common symptoms of anxiety, a problem that many people face every day, especially when it comes to dental care. In fact, nearly 75% of Americans report some level of fear or worry at the thought of undergoing treatment on their teeth. Whether it’s caused by the fear of pain or simply crippling embarrassment over needing several, long procedures to restore your mouth to full health, we take dental anxiety seriously at our Collegeville and Williamsport offices. Dr. DiGiallorenzo doesn’t want his patients to avoid necessary dental treatment, but he also wants them to be able to feel completely comfortable and safe as he carries out the expert, personalized care he’s known for. That’s why our Philadelphia-based offices can now offer you soothing IV sedation through the services of Dr. Antony J. DeMarco.
A Safe Solution That’s Guaranteed to Keep You Fear-Free
As a board certified member of the American Board of Anesthesiology, Dr. DeMarco is both highly qualified and committed to helping patients overcome anxiety with IV sedation. IV sedation is perfect for patients who find it hard not to panic when faced with dental care being carried out above them.
IV sedation is a precise treatment, and one that will be closely monitored during the length of your procedure to ensure maximum comfort. The treatment induces deep feelings of relaxation and peacefulness, and allows you to be able to undergo multiple, lengthy procedures without becoming upset or anxious. Better yet, IV sedation often induces memory loss, meaning that it’ll appear to go by incredibly quickly and leave with little to no recollection of what went on during it. A brand-new look with none of the unpleasant memories – what could be better?
With the help of Dr. DeMarco, Dr. DiGiallorenzo and his team are happy to be able to create a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere for even the most fearful of patients to get the care they need in. Please call either our Collegeville or Williamsport office if you have questions about IV sedation, or if you’d like to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. DiGiallorenzo. Patients from the Philadelphia area and beyond are always welcome to take part in our up-to-date and effective treatments.
