Maintaining optimal oral health is essential for your overall well-being. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to address common concerns and provide guidance on maintaining a healthy smile.

How often should I visit the dentist?
Regular dental check-ups are recommended every six months. These visits allow our team to monitor your oral health, detect issues early and provide professional cleanings.

Why is brushing important?
Brushing twice daily helps remove plaque, preventing cavities and gum disease. Use a fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush for effective cleaning.

How should I floss correctly?
Flossing once a day removes food particles and plaque between teeth. Gently guide the floss between teeth and curve it around each tooth in a “C” shape.

What foods should I avoid for better oral health?
Limit sugary and acidic foods, as they contribute to tooth decay. Opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains.

How can I prevent bad breath?
Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth, tongue and gums. Drink plenty of water, and consider using an antibacterial mouthwash.

What should I do in a dental emergency?
Contact us immediately at 703-757-6453. If a tooth is knocked out, rinse it gently and try to reinsert it. If that is not possible, place it in milk and see us promptly.

How can I whiten my teeth?
We offer professional teeth whitening options for safe and effective results. Consult our team to determine the best approach for your needs.

What’s the importance of fluoride?
Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay. Use fluoride toothpaste and consider fluoride treatments.

Is dental X-ray exposure safe?
Yes, dental X-rays emit minimal radiation and are considered safe. We only recommend X-rays when necessary and take precautions to minimize exposure.

How can I alleviate dental anxiety?
Communicate your concerns with us. We offer sedation options to ensure a comfortable experience during treatments.
