PREVENTION IS KEY

 

DENTAL CLEANING:
having the healthiest smile in the whole world = healthy life

Healthy teeth and gums are important when creating a beautiful smile. Our dentists and hygienists offer dental cleanings and oral exams to maintain a healthy smile for both new and existing patients.

Our dentists and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommend teeth cleaning appointments once every six months (2 times per year). Did you know that untreated gum disease can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even dementia?

At Smiles at Reston Town Center, we provide customized oral wellness programs to meet your individual needs and to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Our preventive dentistry services include:
_Comprehensive oral examinations
_Prophylaxis (teeth cleaning), including fluoride treatments
_Diagnostic x-rays
_Complimentary Oral Health Scans ( no radiation )
_Oral hygiene instructions and demonstrations
_Oral cancer screening
_Gum disease screening and gum disease treatment therapies

At your regular dental checkup appointments, our dentists can keep an eye on dental concerns before they turn into bigger, more expensive problems. Regular dental cleanings and oral exams are perhaps the most important preventive actions you can take to protect not only your oral health, but also your overall health and well-being. Now that’s something to smile about.

 

 

 

LASER GUM THERAPY:
the germ zapper for your gums

While scaling and root planning treatments are still necessary to treat gum disease, dental lasers have been shown to be an effective adjunct therapy.

Smiles at Reston Town Center laser gum therapy can help fight periodontal disease because it zaps and kills bacteria. This treats swollen or bleeding gums, and helps the treatment of chronic, recurring infections and minimizes bone loss around dental implants or implant supported dentures. Also, it provides a great alternative to patients looking for a minimally-invasive treatment procedure.

If you have one or more of these signs of periodontal disease, you may need laser therapy:
_Angry, red gums
_Swollen or bleeding gums
_Teeth that hurt due to surrounding gum tissue
_Heightened sensitivity to hot or cold foods
_Intense pain or uncomfortable feeling while chewing
_Receding gums (teeth appear to be “longer”)

It’s important to understand that periodontal disease is caused by germs and bacteria in the mouth, meaning that dental hygiene and follow up maintenance cleanings are essential to keeping the gum disease bacteria at bay. It is chronic, meaning that it can happen again and again, something that you must watch out for.

Luckily we are here for you.
