Our Preventive Services
Maintaining oral health doesn’t just benefit your smile. It also benefits overall wellbeing, quality of life, and sense of self-confidence. That’s why we make preventive care a priority at Lansdowne Family Dental. By catching potential problems at the earliest stages and providing valuable protective measures, Dr. Wael Elosta and the rest of our team hope to help patients of all ages enjoy the beautiful, healthy smile they deserve for a lifetime.
Our Lansdowne, VA location offers the following preventive services:
Check-ups & Cleanings
Dr. Elosta strongly recommends patients of all ages attend at least two regular appointments in Lansdowne each year. These visits allow our team to inspect your smile for signs of damage and refresh gums and teeth, getting rid of dangerous bacteria in the process. If further care is needed, we’ll be happy to work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. Check-ups and cleanings every six months are essential to maintaining optimal oral health.
Made from a tough plastic material, dental sealants can be used to effectively “seal” pits and grooves of back molars. Because this area is prone to decay, this treatment minimizes the risk of cavities especially for children.
If you suffer from serious headaches upon waking and/or have teeth that look more worn down overtime for no perceived reason, you may be suffering from bruxism (teeth grinding), which often occurs while patients are asleep. Dr. Elosta can protect your smile and provide relief from frustrating symptoms with a customized nightguard.
Our team loves treating children, and we do everything we can to ensure they always have a comfortable and fun experience. With careful examinations, gentle check-ups, and other preventive measures, we can help them on the path towards lifelong oral health and happiness.
