Importance of General Dentistry
General dentistry focuses on maintaining and preventing disease and infection. Preventative dentistry is the best way to maintain a healthy and natural smile for years to come. Dr. Banks recommends visiting Smile Designs of the Shenandoah Valley for a general exam every 6 months. This allows for early diagnosis of any developing oral health concerns and provides you the opportunity for a professional teeth cleaning to prevent common oral diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease. Finding gum disease early and starting treatment immediately is crucial to your oral health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss.
For patients who are suffering from gum disease or tooth decay, we offer a number of general dentistry procedures to return your gums and teeth to proper health, beauty and function. Procedures include periodontal therapy, dental crowns and dental fillings.
Maintaining a Healthy Smile
One of the most important things you can do for your overall health is to maintain good oral hygiene. The mouth is the gateway to the body. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being. Daily preventive care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop.
In between regular visits to Dr. Banks at his Leesburg, VA area dentist office, there are simple steps that each of us can take to greatly decrease the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems. These include:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day
- Floss daily
- Eat a healthy, well balanced diet
- Limit sugary snacks and beverages
- Choose a toothpaste and mouthwash that contains fluoride
- Make sure that children under 12 drink fluoridated water or take fluoride supplements
- Replace toothbrush every 3 – 4 months
