Contact Thurm Dental Group for Sedation Dentistry in Gloucester County
Millions of Americans live with some type of disability, whether it’s physical, developmental, cognitive, or some combination of them. For those with special needs, it can be challenging to keep up with dental hygiene and receiving regular, professional dental care. Dr. Thurm and his staff at Thurm Dental Group near Gloucester County recognize this need in our community and are equipped to provide outstanding service to patients with special needs. We strive to fix any immediate dental issues and cosmetic concerns, and also to prevent problems from occurring in the future.
Treating special needs patients requires an exceptional level of skill, expertise, and the right equipment for the job. Most general dentists are not equipped for this challenge, and we are thrilled to say we are! Thurm Dental Group prides itself on our ability to accommodate special needs patients, including those with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome, and Multiple Sclerosis, to name a few. In fact, we are one of the only dental offices in the Gloucester County area to offer dental health services to those with special needs in our community.
Expanded Sedation Dentistry Options
We offer a number of sedation options, which can make assisting special needs patients easy and anxiety-free. Like most dentists, we offer the basic sedation options of nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” and oral medications that are taken before the appointment. These options leave patients conscious yet relaxed. However, because of his unique medical background, Dr. Thurm is able to offer intravenous, general anesthesia, on an out-patient basis, as well. This additional option often makes it possible to accomplish a lot more in a visit that would otherwise be very difficult.
