Regular Dental Cleanings Vienna VA

We know that being at the dentist is not most people’s idea of a good time. Don’t worry, we don’t take it personally. Our dentist in Vienna, VA is great at turning patients’ negative dental experiences into positive ones. We care for our patients like family. We want an entire practice full of healthy patients with smiles that look and feel great.

We know that fear, money, and busy schedules sometimes keep patients form our office. We understand! Modern families have many demands on their finances and schedules. Here are a few reasons why you should maintain regular dental appointments.

Time – A dental emergency often takes more time, money, and hassle than regular routine exams and treatment. Regular dental visits might take a total of three hours per year and can go a long way toward protecting your schedule. Dental emergencies are never convenient!

Health – Your health is important to us. Regular dental cleanings and dental exams allow us to closely monitor your health and make note of any changes. We can treat problems while they are still small. Regular dental cleanings help to keep your gums healthy. Your gum health has been linked to your systemic health. Researchers believe the inflammatory nature of gum disease can worsen many conditions such as heart disease, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, and even degenerative mental diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Comfort – Dental emergencies are a pain – literally! Often the first sign that something is going on is tooth pain. If you have ever experienced an infected, broken, or damaged tooth, you know just how much dental pain can disrupt your life, your sleep, and your ability to concentrate.

Money – Preventing dental problems is more affordable than treating them. For a small investment on the front end, you can avoid many problems down the road.
