Our High Standards
A standard of excellence with personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning, and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.
Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care, and education are the keys to optimal dental health.
We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we, at Dr. Lambetecchio's, will focus on thorough exams.
In checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary will provide the best treatment plans necessary to tailor your needs. At Dr. Lambetecchio's, we believe routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride, greatly benefit with the prevention of dental disease.
A review of your medical history is necessary for Dr. Lambetecchio to enable us to be informed of your overall health. New medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health must be updated at the time of your visit.
"Physicians are taking a more holistic approach to their patients’ overall health," says Sally Cram, DDS, PC, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association. Also, "In one recent study, people with serious gum disease were 40% more likely to have a chronic condition on top of it." - WebMD
You mouth produces Bacteria that will over time build up, and increase your chances for infection's, and infection related diseases. The resulting inflammation will travel through the entire body and will result in other disease related infliction's. Those infliction's can include heart disease, gum disease, and diabetes related gum disease (periodontitis). the resulting inflammation from poor oral health begins in the mouth and will travel throughout your body thus weakening the ability to control blood sugar.
"Gum disease and heart disease often go hand in hand. Up to 91% of patients with heart disease have periodontitis, compared to 66% of people with no heart disease. The two conditions have several risk factors in common, such as smoking, unhealthy diet, and excess weight.", - WebMD
We strongly recommend patients whom are expecting have regular check ups to prevent and deter any inflammation related gingivitis, commonly known as pregnancy gingivitis during a woman's natural increase in hormones. There are also correlations between oral health and Osteoporosis. With preventative measures, in routine examinations and dental cleanings, and the reduction and treatment of periodontal disease, pain will be reduced in the decrease of inflammation. Other conditions relating from inflammation include lung conditions.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us! To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
