Enjoy stress-free dentistry with 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, nitrous oxide sedation, and oral conscious 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.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas, is a gas administered to patients to induce almost immediate relaxation during their dental care. This gentle sedative allows patients to feel carefree while remaining conscious and responsive to instructions. In some cases, patients may even drift into a light sleep if sufficiently relaxed. Before leaving the dental office, patients are provided with oxygen to restore full alertness, enabling them to safely return to their daily activities, whether it be work, school, or home.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For those seeking a deeper sense of relaxation, a specialized medication can be administered to induce a state of calmness and tranquility. Patients undergoing oral conscious sedation must arrange transportation to and from the dental appointment. Despite the sedative effect, patients remain coherent and capable of communication throughout their visit, and typically wake up feeling refreshed the following day.
