Q. How many times should I visit a dentist during the year?

Most of the time, you will only need a dental checkup once every six months – in other words, twice a year. During these visits, we will clean the areas of your teeth where plaque and tartar have been built up, and we will look for signs of dental issues that we can address right away before they become severe and harder to treat. Specific preventive care plans will be determined at your first dental visit at Lancaster Family Cosmetic Dentistry of Salem.

Q. What if I’m afraid of dental care?

You are not the first person to be nervous about walking into a dentist’s office – far from it! We are used to helping patients of all ages overcome their anxiety so that they can sit back and relax while we take care of their smiles. We offer oral conscious sedation.

Q. Do I need to have a toothache checked right away?

Not all toothaches are necessarily emergencies; for example, if a piece of food is caught between your teeth, the pain will stop once it has been removed via dental floss. That said, tooth pain that does not go away or grows severe should never be taken lightly; call us immediately if the pain does not go away after 24hours.

Q. Will you take dental insurance?

We know how important dental insurance is to many families, and we are happy to accept a variety of plans. To ask about your own plan and what kind of benefits you can look forward to, you can call our helpful staff today.
