Dr. Fernando Cabrera has over 30 years of experience as a dentist. His primary location is in the city of Bayamon, Puerto Rico, only 20 minutes away from San Juan.
Call to make an appointment and have the best dental care from a highly educated and skilled professional. He is licensed to practice in three jurisdictions (PR, PA and FL) and has the special license to administer a sedative medication through the veins. Because of its rapid effects many patients, specifically those with fear of dentists, prefer this relaxing option. IV sedation medication is delivered through a very small needle placed in either the top of your hand or within your inner elbow.
Although you may lie back in the dental chair with your eyes closed, you will not be asleep during your appointment and will still be able to respond to verbal cues from doctor Cabrera. Because you are completely relaxed, he can accomplish more high-quality dentistry in less time. If you have a bad gag reflex or difficulty sitting in a dental chair for long periods, IV sedation will help you with that as well. You'll be so relaxed that you'll be unaware of the sights, smells, and sounds of the dental office.
In fact, patients remember little-to-nothing of their appointment by the next day.
IV sedation also gives your dentist optimum control of the amount of medication administered and allows the dentist to readily increase or decrease your level of sedation as needed, quickly and comfortably.
