Family Dentistry In Fredericksburg, VA
While we may often take our smiles for granted, it’s important that we keep up with our oral health so we can keep those healthy smiles for a lifetime. However, with the ever-growing prevalence of gum disease and tooth decay, it’s important to see your family dentist for routine cleanings and exams.
Why see a Family Dentist?
Everyone should see their Fredericksburg, VA Family Dentist every six months for routine exams to make sure that their smiles remain healthy. Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms, decay and other problems could still be lurking in your mouth that only your family dentist may be able to see through X-rays or a thorough exam. However, if you are experiencing tooth pain, bleeding gums or an emergency situation, your dentist is here to handle all of your urgent and non-urgent dental needs.
Family dentistry care is also very important for children. Starting around their first birthday, children should start seeing a dentist regularly. Since decay can form as soon as a tooth erupts, it’s important to make dental cleanings and exams a normal part of your child’s oral regime. Furthermore, we can instill a smile-healthy diet and proper brushing habits in your child early on so that they always make their oral health a priority.
Your family dentist in Fredericksburg, VA is here to discuss ways to promote a healthier, more beautiful smile. We are happy to sit down and talk about proper brushing and flossing habits, lifestyle changes that could improve your oral health and even cosmetic procedures that could transform your damaged smile. From teeth whitening to dentures, we are here to make sure that anyone can have the healthy smile they deserve. However, the first step is to keep up with your routine dental visits and to see your family dentist at the first signs of a problem.
