What is preventive dental care?

The focus of preventive dental care is to prevent dental problems. Our dentists and dental team would much rather prevent dental problems than fix them! We offer preventive dental care in Springfield, Virginia to prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease. Common preventive dental treatments include dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and regular dental cleanings and exams.

Do I need a dental cleaning and exam?

Yes, we recommend that you visit us at Northern Virginia Dental Associates every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. During these cleanings and exams, we will check for signs of any dental problems that require treatment. We use digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and traditional exam methods to ensure that we detect any existing dental conditions. We will also provide a thorough cleaning to help keep your smile healthy. By visiting our dental practice twice every year, Dr. Winkler, Dr. Charaipotra, Dr. Coulter, and Dr. Kanli can keep your smile in the best possible health and prevent further dental damage.

We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about preventive dental care and how we can protect your smile from the damage of dental problems. We look forward to caring for your smile!
