Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Comprehensive Family Dentistry

How can we help you?

Personalized, professional dental care is important, and if you are looking for a new dental home, you probably have a number of questions before you decide we are the right office for you. We listed some of the most common questions we receive here. If your question is not on the list, please call our Wabasha dental office. One of our helpful team members will be happy to assist you.

Comprehensive Family Dentistry

Sometimes patients want to avoid dental exams, either because they have a dental phobia or because they want to save the money from costs associated with dental exams. We provide the type of dental care we would want for our own families and that includes a dental exam to determine the type of hygiene appointment that will be the best for you. 

Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety is one of the reasons that people say they stay away from the dental office. Dr. Schoen completely understands that the dental chair might not be your favorite place to be. Don’t worry! We are not offended. However, Dr. Schoen is committed to patient comfort and to helping people with anxiety feel more comfortable. He will go at your pace and has an extremely gentle touch. In fact, he even invested in a pain-free injection system called The Wand®. It allows painless delivery of anesthetic so your treatment is completely comfortable from start to finish. 

Dental Exam Costs

The cost of a dental exam is very low compared to any dental procedures. A routine exam allows Dr. Schoen to identify and treat any conditions before they worsen. Dental diseases such as decay, periodontal disease, and bone loss tend to worsen over time. Without a dental exam, it is impossible to diagnose your conditions.

We understand that most of our patients want to look and feel great! That is why we offer professional teeth whitening. Professional whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to improve the appearance of your smile. If you smoke, drink coffee, or eat fruits and vegetables, you might experience stained teeth. Dark teeth can make you look years older than you really are. Professional teeth whitening provides a solution to looking younger and healthier. 

In most cases, professional teeth whitening can lighten your teeth several shades by the time treatment is complete. We create custom whitening trays in our office that you can take home and use at your own convenience. An evaluation with Dr. Schoen will help us determine the whitening system and gel strength that will work best for you and provide you with the results you want. 

Most patients whiten their teeth without any side effects. Sometimes, though, some patients experience sensitivity. It is not permanent. By modifying your whitening routine or by using some special products, you can still have the brighter smile you desire without discomfort. 

Call us today to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Schoen and take the first steps toward a whiter smile.
