Going to the dentist, even for a routine cleaning, can be extremely frightening for many people. It’s estimated that over 45 million people suffer from dental phobia or dental anxiety. Dental anxiety is just that – anxiety – but dental phobia is more severe, often leading patients to neglect dental care for years at a time.
The dentists at Accent Dental specialize in sedation dentistry in Valparaiso, IN. We will make sure you feel comfortable and at ease throughout your dental appointments.
Whether you suffer from dental anxiety or severe dental phobia, it can be difficult to make it through a dental appointment – or even schedule one at all. At Accent Dental, we’ll do everything we can to keep you comfortable throughout the experience so that you can still get the dental care you need.
Sedation dentistry offers a range of options so that patients can be relaxed throughout a procedure. For a simple cleaning and regular examination, nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is used to calm the nerves. For a more extensive procedure such as wisdom teeth removal, some patients need general anesthetic that allows them to sleep through the procedure.
We can provide you with sedation dentistry options for anything from a routine cleaning to oral surgery. If you currently take medication for an anxiety disorder, please let us know before your appointment so we can provide sedative options that won’t have adverse side effects.
At Accent Dental, we offer a wide range of dental services, including general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, prosthetics, oral surgery, root canal treatments, and maxillofacial prosthodontics. We welcome walk-in appointments and offer emergency dental services. No matter what your dental needs are, we can provide sedation options to keep you comfortable.
