Preventative Dentistry in Charlottesville, VA
Our practice is dedicated to helping our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful and functional smile. Regular dental check-ups are important for the maintenance of teeth and gums. However, preventative dentistry can benefit more than just oral health. Science has proven that oral health can have a profound effect on overall health.
Routine Dental Check-Ups and Cleanings
It’s recommended that adults and children visit their dentist every six months. During these routine check-ups, we clean your teeth and inspect your teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, oral cancer, gum disease and alignment issues. Regular visits help us catch these issues early, before they become a much bigger and more expensive problem.
Routine dental exams should begin at the age of one year old and continue throughout your entire life. Proper oral care for young patients helps prevent tooth decay and future dental problems. It also builds the foundation for a lifetime of good oral care habits.
Regular dental visits are only one part of maintaining a healthy smile. Developing good oral habits at home is just as important. Our experienced team can help you learn how to properly care for your teeth between visits.
