If you take care of your teeth, they will take care of you. In addition to being a cosmetic concern, problems with your teeth can affect your overall health, even your heart. Regular dental checkups ensure that any tooth problems are detected early when they are more easily treatable. General dentistry is often all that is needed for Northern Virginia residents to maintain the health and appearance of the teeth. Let’s take a look at some common general dentistry services that we employ to help you maintain your teeth and smile for years to come.
Dental fillings help keep previous tooth decay from returning, which saves the tooth that might otherwise require extensive repair or removal. While fillings are important, they are not permanent fixtures. They, like the rest of your teeth, will undergo wear and tear that eventually means they must be replaced. Fillings generally last from seven to 15 years.
Even tiny cracks in your dental fillings can allow bacteria to enter and gain a safe harbor inside your tooth. Normal brushing and flossing are ineffective at removing this type of bacteria. If you feel that one of your fillings has cracked or is loose, you should set up an appointment with us immediately, particularly if you are experiencing sensitivity to cold or heat.
Laser therapy is quickly making a name for itself as an effective and convenient tool in the world of dentistry. Everything from tooth repair to gum treatment can be accomplished with the state-of-the-art laser technology used at our office in Northern Virginia.
