General Dentistry – Dental Checkups
Regular preventive dental care and at least twice yearly dental checkups are important to maintain overall dental health and to prevent cavities
Regular preventive dental care and at least twice yearly dental checkups are important to maintain overall dental health and to prevent cavities. Alexandria Dental Care provides patients with comprehensive dental care in the Alexandria, Fairfax and Northern Virginia areas. Dr. Lu’s experience in dentistry is coupled with genuine concern for our patients’ oral health and well being.
Dr. Lu and her caring team want all of our patients to know that the goal of preventive dental care is not to fix tooth decay after the fact, but to prevent it from occurring. Regular dental checkups are a more important aspect of oral hygiene care than most people realize, especially if you want to prevent the need for more serious dental conditions down the road. Even if you are diligent about brushing and flossing, you should visit Dr. Lu at a minimum of every six months for a check up and cleaning.
As part of routine cleanings and scheduled dental check ups, Dr. Lu use a small metal tool called a scaler to scrape away plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. If left untreated, this can build up, causing gum disease and other forms of tooth decay. Even if you are a diligent brusher and flosser, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach places. Once your teeth have been cleaned, they will be flossed and polished.
