At Richmond Smile Center, we offer a complete array of restorative treatments. However, the best solution to dental problems is to avoid them in the first place, and if you’ve had your teeth repaired, you certainly want to maintain your new smile. That is why we also focus on preventive care and patient education to help you keep your smile healthy and dazzling for life.
It is very likely that you can restore your oral health and improve the health of your entire body by having dental work as soon as possible. An increase in health problems that your body must deal with means a greater workload for your immune system. Your entire body, including your mouth, gums, and teeth, is part of one system, and oral health is part of whole health. As an example, diabetic individuals are at much higher risk for developing periodontal disease, and the reverse is also true. In fact, periodontal disease may increase your risk of developing diabetes by as much as 200 to 400 percent.
When you visit Richmond Smile Center for the first time, we will give you a tour of the facility. You will then meet with your doctor for a consultation and oral examination.
The recommendations will vary greatly, according to your individual challenges and concerns. Our diagnostic technology includes CAT scanning, bite registration, digital photography, intra-oral cameras, and DIAGNOdent diagnostic lasers.
Gentle, thorough cleanings
Daily oral hygiene, in combination with regularly scheduled professional teeth cleaning is essential for prevention of various oral diseases. Additionally, research has shown that the same bacteria found in gum disease may be present in the plaque of the arteries.
This shows that keeping your teeth clean is important, not only for your oral health, but also for your entire body.
Comfortable, gentle injections
Fillings and injections at Richmond Smile Center are speedy and gentle, thanks to Onset technology from Onpharma. It works by adjusting the anesthetic PH level to reduce or eliminate the pain of numbing injections. Additionally, we use an advanced dental filling material that looks natural and has cavity-fighting properties.
