Enjoy stress-free dentistry with IV sedation in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Are you scared of the dentist? Has dental phobia kept you from enjoying a healthy mouth and a gorgeous smile? Have you dreamed about going to sleep and waking up with dental work completed – without anxiety or pain? Dr. Yolanda Cintron can help. At The International Center of Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, FL, she offers IV sedation for truly painless dentistry – emotionally relaxing and physically comfortable.
What to expect with IV sedation in Fort Lauderdale, FL
For individuals with mild dentist anxiety, medication in a pill form (sometimes called “oral conscious sedation”) may be prescribed. IV sedation, however, is ideal for moderate to severe fear of the dentist. It allows you to be completely asleep during your dental treatment.
IV sedation dentistry is the most comfortable and relaxing technique available. You feel no pain and have no memory of treatment when you wake up. That sense of wellbeing helps to eliminate nervousness and fear of the dentist for stress-free treatment in the future.
During this “sleep dentistry” procedure:
- Calming medication is introduced intravenously.
- You fall asleep quickly.
- If numbing is needed, injections are administered after you are sedated, so you don’t feel a thing.
- Since your body is relaxed as well as your mind, Dr. Cintron completes her work efficiently.
The recovery period is brief, but you will need a driver since you may be groggy for up to 24 hours. With this deeper state of relaxation, you are less likely to have residual discomfort from a tension-strained jaw, neck, or back.
Safe and effective
IV sedation is the most predictable and safe sedation technique used in dentistry. Our dental team never leaves your side. Before, during, and after treatment, Dr. Cintron monitors your heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, and EKG to ensure your wellbeing.
Dr. Cintron is one of only a small percentage of dentists in Florida qualified and licensed to administer this sedation technique. She is also a proud member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
