Gum disease is the No. 1 reason adults lose their teeth. The best way to prevent gum disease is by getting preventative care services at VSP Dental every six months.
Professional dental cleaning removes the tartar buildup on your teeth that brushing and flossing can’t budge. Tartar harbors bacteria that causes periodontal disease – which leads to tooth loss.
Our hygienists use ultrasonic scalers that gently and effectively remove tartar and plaque deposits, giving you a clean, healthy smile that can even reverse gingivitis.
Following your cleaning, we’ll apply professional-grade fluoride to help remineralize your tooth surface and deter future decay.
Many of our patients tell us Dr. Patel and her staff have cured them from their “fear of the dentist.” We’re known for our gentle touch and compassion. If you’re nervous about your cleaning, we’d be glad to provide you with relaxing laughing gas during your appointment.
Do cleanings make you nervous? Even routine procedures like preventive appointments make some people feel uneasy about going to the dentist. If so, feel free to request nitrous oxide during your next appointment!
Meet us, tour the office, and get all your questions answered. You’ll even go home with a goodie bag! Call today to schedule your free consult at 434-688-0600.
At VSP Dental, you don't have to worry about missing school or work to take care of your smile. We're open all five days of week!
