Making Dental
Appointments Easier
with Sedation Dentistry

If you experience anxiety at the thought of seeing a dentist, sedation dentistry can change that. We understand how difficult it can be to want to take good care of your teeth but be fearful of dental treatment at the same time. Maybe you’re further stressed because you have ongoing oral pain and you’re worried about what it might be.

At Creating Smiles, PC, sedation dentistry allows our patients to go forward with cleanings and more intensive treatments with greater confidence. We won’t put you into a deep sleep; you’ll be fully awake but completely relaxed, inside and out. Our sedation options include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Sedation dentistry is ideal for anxious patients, but it can also benefit children and special needs patients.

Restoring Smiles with Dental Implants

Our dental practices in St. John and Valparaiso offer the very best in implant dentistry. Along with giving you a beautiful, more youthful smile, our dental implants can also preserve your jaw bone, restore your chewing ability, and last for 30 years or more. Our implants are strong, stable, and look just like your natural teeth.

Thanks to his experience and training in implant dentistry, Dr. Kapers is able to place and restore dental implants himself, so you won’t need to consult with multiple doctors for treatment.
