When given the choice between going to the dentist or jumping off a cliff, many people will simply start running for the cliff, no questions asked! Dental phobia is a very real thing, and every year, it prevents millions of Americans from getting their essential dental care. Because of this, more and more dentists are now choosing to use sedation to help their more anxious patients. When you go to visit a sedation dentist, they’ll be able to utilize a variety of safe and effective techniques to calm your nerves and protect you from discomfort.

Do you dread visiting the dentist? Are you one of those patients who cancels and reschedules dentistry appointments multiple times? You may be experiencing dental anxiety. This is very common and has many causes, but the result is the same – going to the dentist is stressful and frightening. At Accent Family Dentistry, our Angier dentist and team can help. Not only do we treat patients kindly and offer safe, comfortable treatments, we also provide sedation dentistry options to help patients stay relaxed and free from pain during any dental treatment.
Many of our patients who experience severe dental damage or decay are disappointed to hear that they will need to schedule two or more appointments to complete their restoration or that the entire process can take weeks or even months. At Accent Family Dentistry, we offer patients an alternative – same day smile transformations with CEREC. The innovative CEREC system brings the quality and skill of an entire dental lab into our office. That means patients can come in with a damaged tooth and leave with a flawless smile on the same day. Contact us to find out more about dental restoration options using the CEREC system in our Angier dentistry practice.

Have you noticed your gums are bleeding when you brush your teeth? If so, you could have a serious dental problem brewing in your mouth. Often, people tend to believe that bleeding gums is normal; however, any bleeding is the first indication you may have gum disease (periodontal disease). This is an infection that develops in the gum tissue that requires immediate care. It is estimated that 50% of adults have a form of periodontal disease. If found and treated in the early stages, it is reversible without causing any long-term damage. As your dentist in Angier, Dr. Brenda Gong provides effective prevention and treatment for gum disease.

When a patient is between the ages of 16 and 22, a third set of molars erupts, known as the wisdom teeth. While these molars once helped our ancestors chew tough foods, now they mainly cause headaches and complications. Due to evolution, our jaws became narrower, causing them to be too small to accommodate another set of teeth. This leads to serious complications that often causes them to need to be extracted. As a family dentist in Angier, Dr. Brenda Gong provides wisdom tooth extractions to restore your oral health.
