Nothing has changed the lives of our clients more positively than dental implants. Dental implants are now considered by leading dentists to be the treatment of choice to replace missing teeth, and with few exceptions, dental implants can help anyone who has lost teeth. With an estimated 300,000 dental implants placed annually, the success of this procedure and the improved quality of life it provides for so many cannot be denied.
At The Center For Advanced Dentistry, implant dentistry is performed with the highest levels of precision and accuracy via computer guided implant surgery. Dr. Evangelista is one of approximately 200 dentists in North America and approximately 900 world-wide who are certified in the use of SIMPLANT computer guided
Tooth loss due to gum disease is the most debilitating dental condition known and a serious health issue as well. Furthermore, studies have demonstrated a direct association between periodontal disease and increased risk for heart attack and stroke. By all measures, time may demonstrate additional significant health related problems associated with periodontal disease.
The good news is that periodontal disease is largely treatable. Implantable antibiotics and regeneration of gum and bone tissue are just two of the ways that modern technology is used to treat this insidious health problem.
Sedation and Anesthesia
At The Center For Advanced Dentistry our central concern is to keep our clients safe and pain-free. To this end we have developed the expertise in anesthesia that makes keeping you comfortable one of the easiest and most predictable things we do. We offer a variety of modalities and we have never had a client we couldn’t help. Fear is the number one reason people avoid going to the dentist, our gentle touch, combined with state of the art technology, is the reason they keep coming back.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation offers a mild to moderate level of sedation that is between nitrous oxide inhalation and deeper IV sedation. This type of sedation method involves taking a prescribed pill before you come to the dental office. Dr. Evangelista can prescribe a low dosage oral sedative that allows you to remain awake and able to communicate with us, yet also very relaxed and worry-free. You must bring a friend or family member with you to your appointment when participating in oral conscious sedation so that they can drive you home after your procedure.
Inhalation Sedation Nitrous Oxide “Laughing Gas”
Nitrous Oxide is simply a gas that you can breathe in. It has no color, smell, and doesn’t irritate. Using nitrous oxide allows you to alleviate any fears or discomfort you may have while at our office. It has been referred to as “representing the most nearly ‘ideal’ clinical sedative circumstance”.
Nitrous oxide will simply alleviate your anxiety by placing you in a sleep-like state, so that little is felt or remembered from the dentistry procedure. It’s safe, easy and effective, and best of all, no needles are involved!
