Why choose us?
Taking care of your teeth means more than brushing and flossing. The first step in this process is to find a dentist with whom you feel comfortable and then schedule an appointment. Keep in mind that most dental visits are checkups which, when combined with a professional cleaning, will help your teeth and gums stay cleaner, last longer and prevent painful oral problems from developing.
For complete care, it is important to see our dentist every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning. And, when you select our practice, you will receive the guidance you need through every step of the dental care process and obtain emergency dental care whenever necessary.
When Would Emergency Dental Services Be Required?
Injuries to teeth or gums should never be disregarded. Nerves or blood vessels could be damaged, plus there is always the risk of infection. If an infection is not treated, it can spread to other parts of the head and neck and cause serious health problems. Getting dental lesions treated as soon as possible is the best thing to do. One of the most common problems that require immediate emergency dental care is pain, and it may be caused by:
Chipped or broken tooth
If your toothache lasts longer than one or two days, is severe, there is fever, earache, or discomfort when opening your mouth wide, get emergency dental care right away. Proper identification and treatment are important, especially if there is a dental infection, to prevent it from spreading to other parts of the face and skull, and even to the bloodstream.
We offer comprehensive and emergency dental care to the Greater Fredericksburg, Virginia, area. Below, you will find a summary of our areas of expertise.
We need teeth cleanings for two main reasons: to prevent tooth loss and maintain oral health. Teeth cleanings remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. While this buildup is, for the most part, natural, too much of it leads to gum disease. Teeth cleanings reduce plaque, tartar and bacteria.
Sometimes, during teeth cleanings and regular checkups, our dentist may find an abscess. This is a painful swelling caused by an infection in the gum or inside a tooth. To cure an abscess in the gum, our dentist will need to clean the area, drain it and treat the infection with antibiotics. In the case of a tooth abscess, if there already is a fistula, the course of action may include, but it's not limited to, drainage, a root canal, an extraction or surgery.
When there are gaps between your teeth or if they are crooked or misaligned, your smile may not look as good as you'd wish. Fortunately, now there is an effective treatment that will straighten your teeth to give you the star-quality smile you've always dreamed of: Invisalign. This innovative teeth straightening system consists of custom-fitting, clear plastic aligners that not only straighten your teeth, but can also be removed to make oral hygiene, eating and drinking simple and easy.
Crowns are tooth-shaped covers placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. Crowns may be applied on a tooth that has been broken or severely damaged by decay to provide protection from further breakage. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth and hold a bridge in place. Crowns may also be used to improve appearance by covering misshapen or badly discolored teeth.
