If you have been delaying a dental cleaning and a routine dental exam, don’t delay any longer. Being proactive about your oral health will save you both time and money by catching small issues while they are still minor. The exam is only about an hour long, while having major work done takes significantly longer. During your exam, our dentist will look for decay, areas where the enamel on your teeth is wearing thin and any signs of oral cancer. If everything is fine, we will arrange for your next exam in six months.

Call our practice to schedule your dental exam in Fairfax and take charge of your oral health.

Is a Professional Teeth Cleaning Beneficial?

Teeth cleanings are very beneficial; they help prevent gingivitis by removing the tartar built-up near your gums. If the hygienist notices any areas that you miss, he or she can show you how to brush and floss to reach all of your teeth. Professional cleanings can remove stains as well, so your teeth look noticeably brighter. If you never have a professional cleaning, the tartar will most likely keep building up until you end up with advanced gum disease, which causes tooth loss. Call our office to arrange for a convenient appointment for a dental exam and a dental cleaning.

Can a Dentist Treat Gum Disease?

Yes, our dentist offers gum disease treatment for people with gingivitis, as well as periodontal treatment for patients with advanced stages of gum disease. If gingivitis isn’t treated with a dental cleaning, your gums will start to recede as they are trying to get away from tartar accumulation at the gum line. Over time, this can lead to infections and tooth loss. If you see any signs of gum disease, such as red, swollen gums, contact our office today to arrange for a dental exam.

Can a Dentist Help Me with My Bad Breath Problem?

Usually, bacteria in your mouth cause chronic bad breath; our dentist can make suggestions about oral hygiene techniques and products that can solve your problem. A professional cleaning can do wonders if your bad breath is caused by a buildup of plaque. Gum disease and tooth decay can cause chronic bad breath as well.

Do I Need an Oral Cancer Screening if I am Under 40?

Young people are becoming more and more affected by oral cancer. Starting at age 18, you should be screened once a year and more often if you use alcohol or tobacco. Talk to our dentist to learn how to spot suspicious areas in between screenings. When caught early, the odds of treatment working are high, however, if oral cancer in caught in a later stage, the odds of treatment being successful fall.

Contact our office today to arrange an appointment for a dental exam in Fairfax. We welcome both new and returning patients to our practice.
