"Dr. Rye & his team are amazing! I recently had reconstruction work done on my 4 front teeth--2 implants and 2 crowns. Dr. Rye spent a lot of time researching my case before recommending the course of treatment. He was able to find and eventually use state of the art implants that worked perfectly. The end result is beautiful and I would highly recommend Dr. Rye and his team."
At Rye Smiles for Life, we are dedicated to helping our patients live life to the fullest. Therefore, we are concerned not only with dental health but with the relationship of dental health to the overall health and well-being of our patients. Modern medicine has demonstrated the connection between dental health and overall health, and with the knowledge and technology at our fingertips today dentists are capable of doing more than improving smiles; they can assist in improvements to overall health of their patients. With that in mind, we have collected information on this page to explain the many ways that exceptional dentistry relates to overall health.
Many people do not know that the health of their teeth and gums can affect their overall health. Not only is periodontal (gum) disease a risk factor for many common health conditions, but those with poor general health tend to have more dental problems as well. Patients from McLean and throughout Fairfax County, Virginia, can trust in the skill of our cosmetic dentist, D. Gordon Rye, to determine if implant dentistry, periodontal care, or other dental procedures can help them achieve optimum health.
