General Dentists in Northern Virginia

A bright, healthy smile is an indicator of overall wellness. To achieve healthy teeth and gums, it’s essential to visit a general dentist in Northern Virginia. These dental professionals can help you and your family enjoy a lifetime of good dental health.

General Dentistry: An Overview

A general dentist is usually the dental professional whom patients visit most often. Rather than specializing in one branch of dentistry, general dentists offer comprehensive care to their patients. They help patients maintain their dental health by diagnosing and treating tooth decay or gum disease.

General Dentist: Everyday Care

A general dentist’s goal is to keep your smile in top shape. This involves administering dental exams, polishing and cleaning your teeth, and treating tooth decay and gum disease. General dentists can also diagnose and treat any dental issue that arises, including toothaches or gum infections.

What Are General Dentistry Services?

General dentistry services are an important part of maintaining your dental health. These services include several types of procedures, exams, and treatments that address any dental issues that may have occurred. The following is a list of services you’ll find at our general dental office.

  • Bad Breath Treatment
  • Customized Sports Mouth Guards
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dentures
  • Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
  • Extractions
  • Full Mouth Reconstruction
  • N2O Sedation
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
  • Oral Sedation
  • OSA with Oral Appliance Treatment for Sleep Apnea
  • Pediatric Dentistry
  • Periodontics (Gum Treatment & Surgery)
  • Porcelain Crowns
  • Snore Guards

How Often Should I See a Dentist?

The condition of your teeth, your age, and other factors determine how frequently you should visit a dentist general practice. Our dentists recommend that healthy patients visit us for checkups at least every six months.

Dental Appointment Costs: What’s the Average Cost?

Every person has specific dental health needs, so the price of a dental appointment varies widely. Your cost will be determined by what types of treatment are required and whether you have dental insurance coverage.

Can I See a General Dentist Near Me?

Calling our office to book an appointment is the first step in ensuring your dental health. Our friendly staff members will help you find an appointment time that is convenient for you.

How Long Will My Dental Appointment Last?

Patients visiting our general family dentistry office for routine checkups typically finish their appointments in less than an hour. However, a longer time slot may be necessary if you require extensive dental work. Give us a call if you have any questions or concerns about the length of your appointment.

Getting Ready for Your Dental Appointment

If going to the dentist causes you anxiety, being prepared can help ease your mind. Have copies of your medication list on hand, and talk to your insurance provider beforehand to learn about your coverage options. Our staff members are also available to answer your questions.

Why You Should Visit the Dentist Regularly

Seeing a dentist regularly can help you stop oral health problems before they do extensive damage to your teeth. Conversely, not visiting the dentist can lead to severe – and sometimes costly – dental health issues. It’s never too late to take control of your dental health. Call us today to set up your initial appointment.

In many cases, missing teeth are more than a matter of appearance. Those unsightly gaps often lead to problems with eating, drinking, speaking, and misalignment of surrounding teeth. For these reasons, it’s important to consult your Dental Associates of Northern […]

Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)

In many cases, a root canal, more appropriately called endodontic treatment, is the most effective way to save a tooth that has become decayed, infected, or traumatized in some way. Rather than extract the offending tooth, endodontic treatment removes the […]

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are caps shaped like natural teeth that can be a smart solution for patients with chipped, stained, decayed or worn teeth–particularly those with too little tooth left to hold a filling. If you’d like to return your teeth […]

Snore Guards

Snoring not only disrupts the sleep of others in your household, it often keeps the snorer from a restful night’s sleep as well. If you suspect snoring may be causing you to lose sleep at night, ask your Dental Associates […]
