Regular oil changes and preventative maintenance save you money on repairs and keep your car running like a top.
It’s the same with your teeth. Actually, of the three most common problems: two can typically be prevented and one easily repaired. And as much as we enjoy seeing your smiling face, we’re pretty sure you would rather be anywhere else than at the office of a dentist in Reston, VA! A villa in Tuscany perhaps?
Cavities and Gum Disease
The formula is easy: brush and floss. Because bacteria forms on and in-between your teeth, you must remove that plaque build-up and keep your breath fresh. Your teeth will tell the story about whether or not you’re caring for them and keeping up with your regular professional cleanings! We want you to know everything about how to floss effectively and take the best care of your teeth. Believe us when we say we don’t enjoy telling anyone there’s a cavity to be filled.
As far as gum disease, gingivitis, periodontitis…even the names are scary. If you feel tenderness or your gums bleed when you floss or brush, give us a call. Dr. Kazemifar may have to do a deep cleaning, or just provide education on how you can better care for them. Remember, there are many influencing factors; even stress can contribute to gum disease. We’ll get to the root of the issue. (Absolutely NO pun intended!)
Cracked and Chipped Teeth
Something as simple as chewing on an ice cube or as traumatic as a fall will hit you right square in the middle of your smile. There are all kinds of cracked teeth: they can be fractured or split and are repaired by Dr. Kazemifar with a variety of techniques.
The only thing dental injuries have in common is they can’t go unattended. A cracked tooth doesn’t heal like a broken bone; it will only get worse and could potentially cause an infection in the jawbone and the gums. Whether we determine you require a crown or bridge, we will work together to find the appropriate solution.
If you want the best dentist in Reston VA, (that would be us!), give us a call, let’s get on each other’s calendars, and start this New Year off with a shining smile.
