What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the implant has fused with the bone, a crown is attached to the implant to complete the tooth replacement process. Dental implants are the most durable and natural-looking tooth replacement option available.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a number of benefits over other tooth replacement options, including:
- Improved appearance and function: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
- Durability: Dental implants are made from titanium, which is a very strong and durable material. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Improved oral health: Dental implants help to preserve the jawbone and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting.
- Increased self-esteem: Dental implants can help you to regain your smile and your confidence.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Most people are candidates for dental implants. However, there are a few factors that need to be considered, such as the overall health of the patient and the condition of the jawbone.

All-On-4 Dental Implants Patient Reviews
" I spend close to one year looking for an All-on-4 dental implants doctor. I had three consultations during my journey on finding the best dental implant provider to replace my failing dental work and fix my gum disease. My front teeth were in bad shape. I’m was impressed with Dr Arocha years of experience, his patience for listening to everything I had to say, his friendly assistant and his genuinely caring personality. He spend one hour and twenty minutes with me alone going over EVERYTHING with me. What a passionate dentist he is. I have traveled from Georgia for a All-on-4 consultation to meet Dr Max Arocha in south Florida and find out about the sedation he offered including general anesthesia. I was delighted to also find out that his All-on-4 cost was the most affordable out of the four consultations I had. I had the All-on-4 procedure done in about 3 hrs under sedation. I don’t remember anything but the best part is that I did not have any pain the next day of the surgery. None!!!! Zero!!! I don’t know how Dr Arocha does it. This is truly an amazing doctor with stunning results. I highly recommend Max Arocha DMD for All-on-4 dental implants. Once you get to meet him in person you come to realize that you are in great hands.Doctor and staffing are bilingual "

IV Sedation Dentistry in Florida: Benefits, Costs, Candidates, and Types
What is IV sedation dentistry?
IV sedation dentistry, also known as intravenous sedation, is a type of sedation that uses medication administered through the bloodstream to help patients relax and feel comfortable during dental procedures. It is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety and pain, and it is often used for patients who have complex dental needs or who have a fear of the dentist.
Benefits of IV sedation dentistry
There are many benefits to IV sedation dentistry, including:
- Reduced anxiety and fear: IV sedation can help patients feel relaxed and calm during dental procedures, even if they have a fear of the dentist.
- Pain relief: IV sedation can also provide pain relief, so patients may not feel any discomfort during their procedure.
- Shorter procedures: IV sedation can help to shorten dental procedures by making patients more relaxed and cooperative.
- Improved quality of care: IV sedation can help dentists to provide better quality care to their patients by making it easier to perform complex procedures.
Costs of IV sedation dentistry
The cost of IV sedation dentistry varies depending on a number of factors, such as the type of sedation, the length of the procedure, and the dentist's fees. However, it is generally more expensive than other forms of sedation, such as oral sedation or nitrous oxide.
Who is a candidate for IV sedation dentistry?
IV sedation dentistry is a safe and effective option for most patients, but it is not right for everyone. Some people who may be good candidates for IV sedation dentistry include:
- Patients with complex dental needs, such as multiple extractions or root canals.
- Patients with a fear of the dentist or dental anxiety.
- Patients who have difficulty cooperating with dental procedures.
- Patients who have a gag reflex.
- Patients who have sensitive teeth or gums.
Types of IV sedation dentistry
There are two main types of IV sedation dentistry:
- Moderate sedation: This type of sedation allows patients to remain conscious and responsive, but they are in a deeply relaxed state.
- Deep sedation: This type of sedation puts patients in a state of sleep-like consciousness. They may not be able to respond to questions or commands.
How to prepare for IV sedation dentistry
Before your IV sedation dentistry procedure, your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to prepare. These instructions may include:
- Fasting for several hours before the procedure.
- Avoiding alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours before the procedure.
- Arranging for someone to drive you to and from the procedure.
What to expect during IV sedation dentistry
On the day of your procedure, an IV line will be inserted into your arm. The sedative medication will then be administered through the IV line. You will begin to feel relaxed within a few minutes. Once you are adequately sedated, your dentist will begin the procedure.
During the procedure, you may be monitored by a dentist, nurse anesthetist, or other healthcare professional. You will also be given oxygen through a nasal mask.
What to expect after IV sedation dentistry
After your procedure, you will be taken to a recovery room, where you will be monitored until the sedative medication has worn off. You may feel groggy and disoriented for a few hours after the procedure. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the rest of the day.
Risks and side effects of IV sedation dentistry
IV sedation dentistry is generally a safe procedure, but there are some risks and side effects associated with it. These risks and side effects include:
- Allergic reaction to the sedative medication
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dizziness and drowsiness
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
If you experience any of these side effects, be sure to tell your dentist or nurse right away.
How to find
a dentist who offers IV sedation dentistry
When choosing a dentist for IV sedation dentistry, it is important to select someone who is experienced in this type of sedation and who has a good reputation. You should also make sure that the dentist's office has the necessary equipment and staff to safely administer IV sedation.
Laser Gum Treatment LANAP
Laser gum treatment LANAP, or Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat gum disease. It uses a laser to remove diseased gum tissue and bacteria, and to stimulate the growth of new tissue. LANAP is a less painful and more successful treatment alternative to traditional gum disease surgery.
How does LANAP work?
The LANAP procedure is performed using a PerioLase MVP-7 laser. This laser emits energy at varying pulsating frequencies, which allows it to target specific tissues without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue.
During the LANAP procedure, the dentist will first use the laser to remove diseased gum tissue and bacteria from the pockets around the teeth. The laser will also be used to stimulate the growth of new tissue.
The LANAP procedure is typically performed in two sessions. The first session is used to treat the upper half of the mouth, and the second session is used to treat the lower half of the mouth. Each session typically lasts two to three hours.
Benefits of LANAP
LANAP offers a number of benefits over traditional gum disease surgery, including:
- Less pain and discomfort
- Less bleeding
- No need for sutures
- Faster healing time
- Reduced risk of infection
- Improved gum health
- Reduced risk of tooth loss
LANAP for periodontal disease
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a chronic infection of the gums that can damage the gums, bones, and ligaments that support the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss.
LANAP is an effective treatment for all stages of periodontal disease. It can be used to treat mild, moderate, and severe cases of gum disease.
LANAP for receding gums
Receding gums are a common sign of gum disease. When the gums recede, the roots of the teeth are exposed. This can make the teeth more sensitive to cold and hot foods and drinks, and it can also increase the risk of tooth decay and tooth loss.
LANAP can be used to treat receding gums and to promote the growth of new gum tissue.
Who is a candidate for LANAP?
LANAP is a safe and effective treatment for most people with gum disease. However, it is important to talk to your dentist to see if LANAP is right for you.
LANAP may not be right for people with certain medical conditions, such as:
- Heart disease
- Pacemaker or other implanted device
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
The LANAP recovery time is typically very short. Most people can return to their normal activities within a day or two of the procedure.
You may experience some minor discomfort after the procedure, such as soreness, swelling, and bleeding. This discomfort is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
You will also need to follow a special diet for a few days after the procedure. You should avoid eating hard, crunchy, or spicy foods. You should also avoid smoking and drinking alcohol.
The cost of LANAP varies depending on the severity of your gum disease and the location of your dentist. However, LANAP is generally less expensive than traditional gum disease surgery.
LANAP is a very
effective treatment for gum disease. Studies have shown that LANAP
can lead to a significant reduction in
pocket depth and an increase in attachment level. Additionally,
LANAP has been shown to improve gum health and reduce bleeding and
