Our dental office strives to give our patients the support and knowledge they need to prevent oral health problems from happening in the first place. Preventive care is a crucial cornerstone of what we provide, and we want you to be a fully informed partner when it comes to the needs of your oral health. By coming to your semiannual dental checkups and teeth cleanings in Leesburg, VA, you’ll ensure that your smile stays healthy and strong for many years to come.
In our effort to prevent and detect developing oral health problems, we will try to acquire any recently taken X-rays, or if they’re not available, we will recommend digital X-rays which may include bitewings, a full mouth series, or a Panorex. Part of our preventive care may also include fluoride varnish treatments for children and some at-risk adults to strengthen their tooth structure and establish an oral environment that is more resistant to decay. If jaw muscle soreness or excessive wear of one’s teeth from grinding is detected, we can make a custom nightguard to alleviate muscle tenderness and prevent the further loss of tooth structure.
Our Dentists have extensive training and years of experience that help them easily spot even the earliest indications of a dental problem. By addressing it sooner rather than later, you avoid feeling severe pain or having your smile damaged by decay or infection. Even if you vigilantly take care of your teeth with daily brushing and flossing, as you should, there are likely areas that accumulate plaque over time. Once plaque calcifies, you need professional help to remove it, and that’s where our team at Downtown Family Dental of Leesburg comes in!
