Dr. Yolanda Cintron and her team want their patients to experience the very best that dentistry has to offer. Our practice is designed to provide the highest standard of holistic dental care in a friendly, welcoming environment. We understand, however, that there are individuals for whom seeing the dentist is all but an impossible feat. In fact, studies show that as much as 20 percent of the population goes without dental care due to feelings of severe anxiety related to dentistry. To enable anxious patients to receive the care their smiles need, Dr. Cintron is one of a few dentists who offer sedation services near Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Oral conscious sedation
In recent years, "sleep dentistry" has become a popular term, one that stems from the relaxing effects of oral conscious sedation. Before treatment, oral medication is provided, leading to comfortable relaxation after several minutes. Though some patients may doze off in the dental chair, oral sedation differs from general sedation due to its intent to relax, not "put under." As treatment is provided with oral conscious sedation, the patient has the ability to communicate with our staff while feeling comfortable and anxiety-free.
IV sedation is ideal for patients undergoing a lengthy procedure or for those who have a great deal of fear related to dental care. Administered with precision, IV sedation has a similar effect to oral conscious sedation, quieting the central nervous system to eliminate uncomfortable anxiety. Sedative dosage is carefully selected and is fully adjustable, allowing us to achieve the desired state of relaxation based on individual needs
It is possible to receive dental care in a warm, calm environment. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Cintron to discuss your options for sedation
