People who have recently moved to Leesburg will eventually find themselves looking for a reliable dentist to handle their tooth and gum health needs for themselves or their family. Both adults and children require regular dental checkups and dental cleanings to maintain their oral health. It can sometimes be confusing how to find the ideal dentist in your area. If you live in Leesburg or the surrounding area and are looking for an experienced, skilled provider, look no further than Dr. Shreyesh Ruparelia and Dr. Christie L. Hagert at Cascades Center for Dental Health in Sterling. We proudly provide a number of beneficial services.
It is always a good idea to schedule regular appointments for a dental cleaning, which is also a good opportunity for our dentist to identify any potential problems with your teeth or gums. If you do not have a regular dental cleaning, plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth. This can provide a safe harbor for bacteria to grow and thrive. Eventually, the acids produced by the bacteria can eat away at your tooth enamel and form a cavity.
If you are like most people, you will require at least one dental filling during the course of your life. Typically, dental fillings are used in the treatment of cavities, but in some cases are used to repair broken or cracked teeth, or worn-down teeth. The process of creating a dental filling is quite simple. Our dentist will numb the area and remove decayed material from the tooth. A tooth restoration will then be made using an amalgam or a composite material. Finally, your bite will be checked for proper alignment.
The goal of our dentist in Sterling is to make sure that you retain your original teeth for as long as possible. Losing a tooth is more than a mere cosmetic concern. It can alter the appearance of your face and cause difficulty in speaking, chewing, eating, and swallowing. It also provides gaps that encourage the growth of bacteria that can lead to further tooth loss.
If you need a crown, it is usually because a tooth has decayed or cracked. In some cases, a tooth may be so badly cracked that it cannot structurally support a filling. In such a case, our dentist will fit a crown on top of the tooth, which safeguards the remaining tooth structure and prevents bacteria from taking over.
