Biannual dental exams and cleanings are the key to preventing cavities and other oral health issues and maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile for life. At Creating Smiles, PC, we take pride in seeing our patients leave our office with polished pearly whites, but we also enjoy helping patients overcome dental problems and regain their confidence. And for our patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist, Dr. Kapers and his outstanding professional team can provide several sedation dentistry options to make their experience more relaxing. We’re happy to reduce stress in our patients so they can stay on top of their oral health.

What to Expect When You See Us For Your Dental Exam in St. John or Valparaiso
When you come to Creating Smiles, PC in St. John or Valparaiso, you can expect attentive, friendly service from our team and an environment that feels more relaxing than your typical dentist’s office. If you experience more anxiety than the average person when it comes to undergoing dental treatment, we’d be happy to tell you about the different types of sedation dentistry we offer.
If you’re seeing us for the first time, we’ll want to know as much as we can about your oral health so we can build your medical history. We may also ask if you’re taking any medications (especially if you elect to receive sedation), and inquire about any past dental treatments or procedures you might have had.
Next, we will:
Perform an examination of your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite, so we can check for issues such as cavities, bite misalignment, and mouth sores
Take full-mouth X-rays to better visualize the health of your teeth and the underlying bone; if we see any problems, we’ll explain them to you and discuss your treatment options
Remove any traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth, polish the tooth enamel, and floss your teeth
Save on Dental Care Costs with Biannual Dental Exams
Without regular dental exams and cleanings, any existing dental problems you may have will likely get worse and become harder to treat, not to mention more expensive. Seeing your dentist every 6 months is the best way to stay healthy and prevent serious, costly problems later. If you have concerns about your dental care expenses, ask us about insurance options, and consider applying for CareCredit. We’ll be happy to help you manage your dental treatments and costs. Just call us to speak with our team!
