With proper care, your teeth could last you your entire life. Thanks to advances in dental care over the decades, many people will never even experience a cavity. However, even if you neglected your teeth early in life, it is still not too late to start taking care of them. You should see a dentist twice a year in order to prevent dental issues. This actually benefits more than just your teeth, since tooth decay can harm your overall health, adversely affecting your heart, liver and kidneys.
At Cardinal Park Family Dental in Leesburg, VA, we offer a full range of general dentistry treatments. We will start you off with a dental examination, during which you will be checked not just for tooth decay, but for other issues like gum disease and oral cancer, both of which are very treatable when caught soon enough. We will also take x-rays of your mouth, which will help us to identify problems like cracks, or fillings that have become loose and need to be replaced.
We will also talk with you about any issues you have been experiencing. We want to know, for example, if you have a history of mouth sores, pain in your jaw, etc. In short, we want to make sure that we have all the information we need to act as your full partner in your dental care. You can rely on us to listen to you, and if you have any questions, we will do our best to make sure they are answered to your satisfaction. We do not see ourselves as being there to tell you what you need in terms of dental care. Rather, we prefer to take on the role of consultant or partner, offering advice and suggesting treatments, but never forcing you into anything.
If you and your family have been neglecting your dental health, contact us at Cardinal Park Family Dental, 2 Cardinal Park Drive, Leesburg, VA 20176. We have been practicing general and family dentistry for quite some time, and would welcome an opportunity to serve you.
