Burke, Va preventive care is an essential component of both excellent oral health and a prerequisite to building the smile you’ve always wanted. If it’s been a while since your teeth have had any TLC, give our office a call and schedule your appointment today.
Preventive care has two major components, both of which are critical. The first is that it gives us an opportunity to put expert eyes on your teeth, mouth and gums at regular intervals. That matters because it gives us the opportunity to spot oral health problems while they’re still small and relatively easy, inexpensive and painless to deal with.
It’s also important because it gives us the chance to give your teeth a good cleaning. Keeping plaque from accumulating on your teeth is probably one of the most important things you can do in terms of Burke, Va preventive care. It helps you in three different ways:
First, as most people know, plaque causes tooth decay. If you want to avoid having to get a filling, a root canal or, in the worst case, have one of your teeth pulled out, keeping plaque to a minimum is the best way to do it.
Second, plaque also causes gum disease. Of the two, most people see tooth decay as the bigger problem, but the truth is, gum disease is significantly worse.
It may not seem that way in its earliest stages, but if left unchecked, gum disease can cause your gums to recede, and in its most advanced stage, can even lead to bone loss, which can cause catastrophic tooth loss. If you let things get to that point, you’ve got a major problem on your hands.
Third, plaque causes bad breath! True, this one isn’t nearly as important as the other two, but nobody likes having bad breath, and availing yourself of Burke, Va preventive care at regular, six month intervals is a super easy way to avoid all three issues.
In addition to offering world-class preventive care, our office offers a full range of both general and cosmetic dentistry services, which means we can not only help you optimize your oral health, but work with you to build the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.
Best of all, we’ve worked hard to expand the number of insurance carriers we work with, which means we probably accept the dental insurance you’ve got. Right now, the list of carriers we work with includes:
- Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- Cigna (the Total DPPO plan)
- Delta Dental
- Lincoln Financial Group
- Sun Life
- And United Concordia
Don’t worry if you didn’t see your insurance company on the list above. In addition to that, we accept PayPal, CareCredit and the Citi Health flexible monthly payment option, and if you don’t have any of those, we can get you enrolled in our Platinum Membership Program, which will give you big discounts on most of the services we provide.
All that to say, whatever your dental needs are, we’ve got you covered!
