Dental phobia can prevent you from getting the dental care you need to stay healthy.
At Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Orlando, FL, we offer various forms of sedation dentistry to help you feel calm during your visit.
Have you been putting off treatment due to fear of the dentist? Here's how sedation can help you...
By offering sedation in addition to local anesthesia (which blocks physical pain and sensation), Dr. Alfredo Gapuz can provide a comfortable, pain-free experience for his Orlando patients.
Calm State of MindIf you suffer from dental anxiety, choosing sedation can help you feel calm and relaxed during your appointment. It may even help you build a more positive relationship with visits to the dentist.
More Efficient TreatmentIt is more difficult to treat a tense, anxious patient. By helping you achieve relaxation in the dentist's chair, Dr. Gapuz can provide more efficient care.
Studies Show: Many Adults Suffer from Dental Anxiety
Ease Dental Phobia with Sedation Dentistry
If visiting the dentist generates feelings of fear and anxiety, we offer advanced sedation dentistry solutions to make your visits as calming and pain-free as possible. As an experienced sedation dentist in Orlando, Dr. Alfredo Gapuz can safely alleviate anxiety and discomfort using advanced techniques. He can perform a variety of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures with sedation dentistry, including porcelain veneers, dental implants and many other options.
Conscious sedation is a drug-induced state of reduced awareness. We provide you with an oral conscious sedative pill to take about one hour before your procedure, which puts you in a deep state of relaxation during your treatment. You will still be able to communicate and respond to Dr. Gapuz during the procedure. One of our experienced dental team members will closely monitor your progress throughout the treatment. This allows you to undergo your dental procedure in a relaxed state without intense fear or anxiety during the treatment. Oral conscious sedation makes it possible for you to receive dental treatment virtually painlessly. In fact, you may not even have any recollection the procedure took place at all once it is complete. Dr. Gapuz advises patients who have oral conscious sedation that they will need to arrange for someone to drive them to and from our practice for the procedure.
As an alternative to oral conscious sedation, our office offers NuCalm™, a high-tech and all-natural system that also keeps you in a relaxed state throughout your procedure. After treatment, patients feel rejuvenated, rather than disoriented and groggy. NuCalm’s™ substance-free method allows you to leave the office safely on your own and without recovery time.
