Dental Cleanings & Exams
For some people, visiting the dentist office for regular dental cleanings and exams can be a difficult experience. Not only is it hard to find the time, but visits to other dentists could have left you feeling anxious or confused about a new appointment. Will they treat me like a real person? What exactly is going to happen? And perhaps most importantly, can they help my smile look and feel its best? At our Bethlehem, PA office, we fully understand how dental anxiety can get in the way of proper, regular care. By providing thorough cleanings and exams with kindness and comfort, we will help you look forward to your visits.
Regular Cleanings Keep Your Smile Healthy
Most people take good care of their teeth and gums, but there’s only so much that can be done without the proper tools and training. It’s also hard to see every corner of your mouth in a mirror. That’s why regular cleanings at our Bethlehem office are so important to your long-term dental health. By giving your teeth regular, professional dental cleanings, you can prevent expensive and problematic issues today and keep your smile bright and healthy.
Exams Identify Problems Before They Get Worse
Dental problems often start out very small. A tiny cavity or hairline crack is easily overlooked, leading to significant health problems down the road. Regular dental exams with our team can identify these problems early, allowing us to create a simple, less expensive dental treatment plan. Whether it is a routine issue like tooth decay or something less common like bruxism, our thorough exams can help your smile –– and your health.
Establishing A Good Relationship Is Important
It’s hard to make an appointment when you hardly know the team working on your teeth. It’s even harder when you feel like you’re just another patient being rushed through the appointment. That’s why we focus on building relationships with you. At all of your dental exams, we will discuss your dental health goals and fully explain all of our diagnostic findings. This allows you to make informed decisions for your particular needs.
What To Expect From Your First Visit
For some patients, a first visit may be prompted by a dental emergency or a specific urgent concern. Of course, we will give special attention to the emergency situation first and make you comfortable. If it is not an emergency, we will review your dental and medical history; and we will conduct a comprehensive examination that will include an oral cancer screening, blood pressure check, periodontal screening and thorough documentation of all existing conditions and dental restorations in your mouth. We will also take x-rays and other diagnostic information to help create a treatment plan for you. Following this thorough exam, Dr. Lambert will work with you to develop a personalized dental treatment plan to meet your specific needs and desires. We promise to speak candidly about your treatment options in considering a plan that works the best and provides the most value for you. We won’t recommend work that doesn’t need to be done, but we also won’t recommend time and money wasting quick fixes and cover-ups! And of course, rest assured that once we have discussed your diagnoses and available treatment options, we will discuss fees and financial and insurance options for your peace of mind before we begin treatment. All in all, we promise you personalized results with no wasted time, no wasted money and, of course, no surprises. If this is your child’s first trip to the dentist, we offer free preschool visits complete with a guided tour of our office to make sure your child feels comfortable and safe.
