Preventative Care and Regular Dental Checkups for Optimal Oral Health
Berkshire Family Dental in Washington DC provides comprehensive general and preventive dentistry to ensure optimal oral health for children and adults, from oral hygiene care and prevention to gum treatments and tooth restorations.
Most people hate going to the dentist, so they avoid it until a problem leaves them with no choice but to make an appointment. Going to the dentist shouldn’t be a terrible thing, and it isn’t if you make a habit of regularly going to prevent problems before they start. Preventative dentistry is the key to a healthy mouth and happy dentist visits.
Preventative dentistry doesn’t only take place in the dentist’s office: It involves practicing good dental hygiene at home. This includes regular brushing and flossing, at least twice a day or preferably, after every meal.
Regular dental checkups are an important part of preventative dentistry. A dentist can find minor problems that you may not be aware of and treat them before they become more serious. The dentist might recommend fluoride treatments or in-office cleanings to keep your teeth in their best condition. Dentists can use special instruments to clean teeth or to remove plaque and tartar.
If you have a toothache or gum pain, getting to the dentist as soon as possible can solve the issue before it becomes worse.
In addition to preventative dentistry, our Washington DC dental office provides treatment for gum disease, tooth colored fillings, wisdom tooth extractions and root canal treatment. Our state-of-the-art technology and highly trained and personal staff ensure our patients are comfortable and treatments are performed efficiently.
If you have a dental emergency, we can help. If you chip or crack a tooth in an accident or if a tooth is knocked out completely, it is important to act fast. Call our Washington DC office, and we’ll make every effort to see you the same day.
You can call us anytime with any questions you have. We can set up a consultation appointment or new patient exam at your convenience.
