Dr. Timothy Delcambre and his team work closely with caregivers to create a comfortable environment for patients requiring more focused attention during treatment. Through our patient and thorough approach, our New Orleans dentist is able to provide comprehensive care to all individuals.
The Importance of Regular Dental Visits
As a critical part of preventive dentistry, routine recare visits provides the important opportunity for evaluating changes to a patient's smile. These appointment include oral cancer screenings, periodontal charting, and cavity evaluation, in addition to professional cleaning to remove accumulated tartar and plaque. Without these visits, patients are left vulnerable to the development of more serious dental problems.
For patients with special needs, dental fear, discomfort, and difficulty sitting still for extended periods of time make routine visits a challenge. As a result, these individuals are at risk of developing serious dental conditions, such as tooth abscesses and periodontal disease. These problems can significantly compromise an individual’s oral well being if left untreated.
At Timothy Delcambre, DDS, MHA, we believe all patients deserve access to comfortable, compassionate dental care. For special needs patients, this begins with creating a friendly, safe environment where individuals can feel comfortable receiving care. As a wheelchair accessible practice, we welcome all patients to visit for their biannual check-ups. With help from our understanding staff, individuals who require more attention during their procedure are able to feel at home and are kept comfortable throughout their visit. Our staff also works closely with caregivers to ensure that effective dental hygiene techniques are being utilized at home, ensuring lasting and improved wellness between appointments.
Our goal is to create dental treatment plans that benefit an individual’s overall health and wellness. By consulting with the patient’s physician, we are able to determine patient health status and identify whether poor oral hygiene is impacting other parts of their total body wellness. Using advanced and comprehensive diagnostic tools, Dr. Delcambre is able to better understand dental conditions and create a tailored treatment plan that ensures lasting wellness. We also offer nitrous oxide sedation as a means of ensuring relaxation during both routine and complex treatments.
