Sleep Dentistry

Are you nervous about going to the dentist? You’re not alone. About half of Americans say they’re anxious about visiting the dentist, and almost 10 percent are so afraid, they put off needed dental care.

Thurm Dental is proud to offer sleep dentistry to provide a safe, anxiety-free dental experience for people who are afraid of the dentist. Whether you’ve had a bad experience previously or simply have a phobia of the dentist, we can make sure you feel completely relaxed and comfortable. Best of all, we can typically fix years of neglect in just one or two visits. Call us today at (856) 335-1775 to schedule your appointment.

What is Sleep Dentistry?

Sleep dentistry is a form of sedation dentistry that uses general anesthesia. Dr. Arthur Thurm is one of the only dentists in the area who is certified in general anesthesia for general dentistry. Other dentists in New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Delaware often refer patients with dental phobias, special needs, or dementia to our office so we can treat them with comfortable, compassionate care.

With sleep dentistry, the patient just needs to lie back and relax while our qualified team administers general anesthesia or IV sedation to put the patient completely sleep. The patient will be completely pain-free and will have no memory of the experience. The patient simply wakes up when the dental work is complete.

Who is a Good Candidate for Sleep Dentistry?

People who choose sleep dentistry include:

  • People who are fearful of the dentist
  • People with special needs
  • People with dementia, including Alzheimer’s
  • People with a bad gag reflex
  • People who do not get numb through novacaine or topical anesthetics
  • People with sensitive teeth
  • People who hate the sounds or smells associated with dental offices
  • People who do not have a lot of time for dental visits

Our team will be happy to discuss your particular needs either on the phone or at the time of your first consultation.

What are the Benefits of Sleep Dentistry?

People come to Thurm Dental every day to eliminate toothaches or improve their smiles. One of the greatest benefits of sleep dentistry is that there are no shots, no pain, and no memory of the treatment. The patient simply sleeps during the procedure and wakes up with a new smile.

Another reason why people choose sleep dentistry is that a lot of work can be completed in just one visit. That saves the patient a lot of time.

Sleep dentistry also makes the visit less stressful for the patient. By having a good experience at the dentist, the dental phobia may be reduced and it is often easier to return for regular dental care in the future.

Excellent dentist and staff. Seen on time. State of the art equipment and most importantly, correct and good treatment with a conservative approach. Dr. Thurm’s approach is to assess the situation, range of options, whether the treatment is urgent or can wait and proceed from there. Everybody in this facility is both professional and friendly. I wish all businesses were like this.

I have an absolutely devastating fear of dentists, and had it not been for excruciating tooth pain, I was content to not visit a dental office. My first visit, while in such pain, was probably the most gentle experience I’ve had with a dental office. The staff was definitely sympathetic to my fear, and instead of treating it dismissively or by treating me like a child, they truly made me fee…

Dr. Thurm and staff are the most amazing people. Their support and expertise is above and beyond. I went in with a difficult problem and the reassurance and calmness of Dr. Thurm is just amazing. He makes a terrible procedure turn into an ordinary day. The kindness exhibited – not only from Dr. Thurm but his entire staff – is very much appreciated. I NEVER want him to retire. I know tha…

If you have any fear of the dentist, this is the place to go. They do whatever is necessary to help you feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Thurm for dental work. I have had extensive work done by his team: partial bridge, crowns, root canals and fillings.

I’ve had a life long fear of the dentist for as long as I can remember and as a result neglected my teeth . Then I found Dr Thurm and staff . I have absolutely no anxiety about going to see him . He’s done all my work for me and it’s all been great . Being able to smile with confidence and not hide my teeth in shame has been life changing . I can’t say enough !

As always, everyone at Thurm Dental is professional and friendly. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Thurm’s for over thirty years and wouldn’t consider ever going to another dentist. At this point it’s like visiting old friends.

I had some concerns about a dental issue. I received friendly, painless treatment as well as good information as to how to deal with my dental issue. I feel as though my next check-up will be very much improved. It was a great appointment.

Outstanding experience! I have avoided the dentist for 35 years due to fear. I honestly thought having my teeth taken care of was completely out of the question until I heard Dr. Thurm’s practice advertised on the radio. From the moment I walked in, everyone on his staff was incredibly friendly and were acutely aware of your trepidation. While in the room waiting to see the Dr. I felt myself…

THE best dentist in the area! I have been going to the Thurm Dental Group since my children were in grade school – they now have children of their own. The entire staff is terrific ( a special shout-out to Lisa!). I have had a lot of dental work done and have never experienced ANY discomfort or pain.
