Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Granger, IN

At Advance Dental, we place patient comfort at a premium, and our policy on conscious sedation dentistry proves it. We understand that you may be nervous or even downright scared about having a dental procedure done, even if it may be a relatively simple one.

We offer conscious sedation for any of our dental procedures, although it may not be needed for the simpler ones. Our goal is to make sure that no patient leaves our offices feeling anxiety or pain. We want trips to the dentist to be no more anxiety causing than any other appointment that you may have, and we are willing to do what it takes to make sure that is the case.

If you are a fearful dental patient, we will do everything possible to put you at ease. Your dental procedure here at Advance Dental may just be the easiest and least stressful visit you have ever had in a dentist's chair.

We at Advance Dental are pleased to offer comprehensive dental care for Granger, Indiana near Mishawaka, South Bend and the surrounding areas. Whether you need emergency care or you need a planned surgery, we are here to help. If you are interested in the conscious sedation method of dentistry where you can be free of pain while still awake, please feel free to give us a call to schedule an appointment. 

If the idea of going to the dentist  brings on feelings of fear or anxiety we have options to help ease your worries. Oral conscious sedation is extremely safe and easy. You will feel relaxed and at ease under our care. Oral conscious sedation does not "knock you out" like some other forms of anesthesia. You will remain awake during your procedure, but you will be in a heightened state of relaxation and comfort. It is also possible that you will not remember part, or all, of your procedure.

Oral conscious sedation is much less expensive than other forms of sedation, and you will be able to talk and breathe on your own during the procedure. It also makes long or complex procedures seem shorter, allowing you to have all of your work done in a single visit. Because you will have medicine in your system, you are required to have someone drive you to and from the office and remain with you the rest of the day if you use oral conscious sedation for your safety.

We specialize in help ease dental fears. Don't wait any longer to have necessary dental work performed because you are nervous. Ask Dr. Stangebye and his staff about oral conscious sedation to see if it is right for you.

Call our office today at (574) 271-9910.

Fear of visiting the dentist is one of the most common types of phobias. Fortunately, sedation dentistry can help put you at ease, whether you're having your teeth cleaned or you need a filling. Dr. Ronald F. Stangebye, your Granger, IN sedation dentists at Advance Dental, explain how sedation dentistry can help you. Sedation Dentistry in Granger, IN

Oral Conscious Sedation at Advance Dental

Whether it means a warm comfy blanket, ear phones and calming music, here at Advance Dental we strive to make your sedation visit as smooth and pain-free as possible.

Sedation helps reduce stress

Dr. Stangebye will help you relax during your visit by offering oral or inhaled medications that will relieve your feelings of anxiety and help you feel calm during your examination or treatment.

Pain won't be an issue

Although many people who have dental phobia say that they're afraid of the dentist, what most are actually afraid of is experiencing pain. Whether you had a bad experience at the dentist when you were young, or your phobia is more recent, sedation will not only help you feel more relaxed, but will also increase your tolerance to pain. In fact, less anesthesia may be needed when you're under sedation.

You won't need to return as frequently

Often when a patient has a dental phobia, only a small amount of work can be done in one visit before they become overwhelmed. A visit that normally takes an hour may have to be broken up into two or three shorter visits. When you take advantage of sedation dentistry, you'll be able to handle that hour-long appointment and won't need to return to the dentist's office in Granger, IN until your next checkup.

Everything will be less scary when you take advantage of sedation

If you have a dental phobia, the sights, sounds and smells of the dentist's office can make you feel nervous and fearful. When you choose sedation, those things won't bother you. After a positive experience, you may feel a little more confident about returning for your next visit. In fact, depending on the type of sedation, you choose, you may only have a hazy memory of the visit.

Has a dental phobia kept you from getting the care you need? Advance Dental, understands your fears and wants your experience to be comfortable. Call Advance Dental at (574) 271-9910 to schedule an appointment.
