Advanced Services – Sedation & Anesthesia
Have fear and anxiety kept you from going to the dentist? If so, you are not alone. It is estimated that up to 60% of people have a fear of dentists. Avoiding the dentist causes many people to have gum disease, cavities, and teeth problems that spiral out of control. At Advanced Dental Implant Center, we understand that fear can keep you from getting the treatment that can restore your smile. Advanced Dental Implant Center surgeons offer multiple sedation options to help reduce fear, anxiety, and discomfort during dental procedures. As a matter of fact, our founder wrote one of the largest scientific studies ever published for intravenous sedation used in conjunction with dental surgery procedures. With over 40,000 sedation procedures performed, the surgeons at Advanced Dental Implant Center have the experience to keep you safe, calm, and relaxed during your dental treatment.

Advanced Dental Implant Center are part of a professional affiliation of dental implant practices operated by oral surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, and restorative dentists. With the specialized techniques used by Advanced Dental Implant Center, such as zygomatic and pterygoid implants, nearly all patients qualify for same day dental implants from a dental perspective. Prospective patients require an initial workup that includes an oral examination, 3D radiographic evaluation, and medical history consultation. Some patients with certain medical histories may not qualify for surgical treatment. “Teeth-in-a-day”, “one day implant teeth”, “same day implant teeth”, etc. refers to the fact that on the day of surgery, patients will have teeth removed (unless all teeth are already missing, dental implants placed, and a screw retained prosthesis secured to these implants on the same day as the surgery. While this first set of teeth are permanent in the fact that they are secured to the dental implants by screws, these teeth are typically not the final set of teeth as the patient will be allowed to heal prior to the delivery of the final set of teeth. Furthermore, the patient will be allowed to suggest desired changes to the initial set of teeth prior to the fabrication of the final set of teeth. The initial set of screw retained implant teeth are permanent in the fact that they are not removable by the patient and can only be removed by personnel in a dental office. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime depending on the age of the patient when the implants were originally placed. Studies show that dental implants can last over 25 years with proper home care and regular professional maintenance.
