Relieving Dental Anxiety

Dr. Nicole Hurcomb on Relieving Dental Anxiety Read Transcript

If you’re ready to experience stress-free dentistry, contact Tulip Tree Dental Care and find out how we can help relieve your dental anxiety!

At our South Bend, IN dental office, Dr. Nicole Hurcomb and our compassionate dental team will do everything we can to put you at ease.

Friendly Team, Comfort Amenities

At Tulip Tree Dental Care, our calming dental team wants your visit to be as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We will listen intently to your particular concerns to better serve you with the quality dental care you deserve. And we will never judge you or guilt you into any treatment.

To help you feel at home, we offer a few different comfort options, including:

  • Warm blankets
  • Cozy pillows
  • TVs and music to entertain you

Dental Sedation Options

To help calm your nerves, we offer two different levels of dental sedation: inhaled sedation and oral conscious dental sedation. In a private consultation, we can help you choose which option is best for you. Sometimes we combine both options to ensure you’re completely relaxed.

We offer a gas that, when inhaled through a small mask, creates a sense of mild euphoria. This inhaled sedation works quickly, wears off easily, and can be administered to children and adults. You will have no problem driving to and from the South Bend, IN dental office if this form of sedation is used.

Oral conscious sedation is ingested in pill form and creates a deep sense of relaxation. We recommend this level of sedation for patients who are quite anxious or even fearful of the procedure. You will need a trusted friend or family member to drive you to and from your visit.

Both of our dental sedation options are safe to use under the supervision of our highly trained team. We will ensure you are safe and comfortable throughout your treatment.
