Comfortable Dentistry in Bonita Springs, FL
What would the perfect dental visit look like for you?
Most patients envision a warm and inviting atmosphere that makes them feel right at home and not like they were in a dentist’s office.
At Bonita Grande Dental, we have the same vision!
Dental care is serious and needs to be conducted under specific strict guidelines. But, that doesn’t mean our dental office has to look or feel cold and unfriendly. In fact, we believe the complete opposite is true! We do everything in our power to make our space as serene and snug as we can make without giving up any of our professional demeanor.
It can be easy to put off your upcoming dental checkup and exam, especially if you brush and floss your teeth daily, and they look and feel great. Ignoring your oral health can be an easy and risky trap that patients often walk into as many dental health issues may be invisible to the naked eye.
Dental problems like periodontal disease or tooth decay may not even display any symptoms until the disease has reached the inner part of the tooth. Many times, by this point, it might be too late for a quick and easy treatment.
The best dentistry conforms to your individual wants and needs, including your well-being and comfort and health. That’s why every detail of your treatment is designed to put you at ease and make you feel pampered and secure.
Let us keep your smile in tip-top shape while you melt away the day’s stress.

Stress-Free Dental Treatments
It’s common to be apprehensive about dental visits. Patients have many different reasons for their dental anxiety. It could be the sound and vibrations of dental equipment, lights and smells, or the fear of pain and discomfort. No matter what your concerns may be, we have procedures in place to make sure that every visit you have with us is pleasing and pain-free.
Dr. Gostigian and the rest of our dental team are very gentle and sensitive to your feelings. We’ll go over your dental procedure together so you will know what to expect.
Good dentistry is a collaborative effort, and we pay attention to your questions and concerns so we can tailor your smile treatment plan based on your individual needs. Prior to almost every dental procedure, we may apply a topical numbing gel to the treatment area. This ensures that patients never feel anything more than slight pressure.
Dr. Gostigian is skilled at administering injections, and we can assure you that they are always quick and as comfortable as possible.
Sedation Dentistry Options to Manage Your Anxiety
If you find yourself extremely anxious about your dental procedure, we can facilitate safe and effective nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas. This inhalation sedative is one of the safest and easiest relaxation techniques that help with any procedure, from dental cleanings to filling cavities.
Nitrous oxide relaxes patients almost immediately by putting them in a dreamlike state where they feel disconnected from lights, sounds, and activity. Patients are still aware enough to communicate with our dentist, but they will always remain relaxed and unfocused until the procedure is done.
Unlike other medications, nitrous oxide does not have after-effects that could prevent patients from resuming their normal daily activities and driving home immediately after their procedure. Nitrous is safe enough for children to benefit from, and is as easy as breathing in and out.
Oral sedation is another effective option if you feel that the nitrous oxide isn’t enough and are interested in a deeper level of sedation. Dr. Gostigian will recommend and prescribe a sedative for you to take about an hour before your visit, so you arrive at our office feeling relaxed. These anti-anxiety medications will reduce and manage any anxiety you may feel.
Because these medications stay longer in your system, you will need to arrange a driver to get you to and from your appointment.
Please talk to us if you are interested in learning about alternative options, or deeper sedation levels. For minimally invasive procedures, like professional teeth whitening and dental cleanings, we may recommend topical anesthesia along with nitrous oxide. These milder sedatives will allow you to return to work or daily life without any lingering impact.
For surgical procedures, we can sit and talk about the level of care you are comfortable with.
General Dentistry Keeps Your Smile Fresh and Healthy
By being proactive about your oral health, you can sidestep emergencies and other dental pitfalls that quickly come about when you neglect your smile.
Through routine dental visits to your Bonita Springs general dentist twice a year, Dr. Michael Gostigian can detect early signs of common issues like tooth decay, gum disease, infection, abscesses, and more. The earlier you can catch a problem, the more options you have to treat it with less complicated (and costly) dental procedures like fillings to bring back your dental well-being.
We also screen for oral cancer so we can catch any abnormalities that could become life-threatening. Since dental visits should be a regular part of your yearly schedule, why not make them as pleasant and comfortable as possible? Our entire dental staff works hard to put anxious patients at ease so that they can look forward to each visit.
A Calm and Soothing Environment at Bonita Grande Dental
From the moment you arrive at Bonita Grande Dental, you will feel like you are in a gentle and soothing dental office.
You may be pleased to see complimentary beverages like bottled water and coffee are freely available in our reception area. We believe the difference is in the details!
We offer many amenities to make your dental experiences more pleasant and calming, with complimentary beverages, flat-screen TVs in each room with earphones, heated massage chairs, pillows, blankets, and even warm scented towels. You may not realize it, but amenities and thoughtful details can make all the difference between a routine but forgetful dental visit and an incredible and agreeable experience.
Your family’s comfort is our main priority. Have you been dodging oral health treatment because of overpowering fear and anxiety? Our Bonita Springs dental office would love to showcase the impact that gentle care in a warm, welcoming atmosphere can make.
