Diagnostic and Preventive Services in Waynesboro, VA
When you want to maintain a healthy smile, regular dental care is essential! At Browning Family Dentistry, we provide high-quality diagnostic and preventive treatment options to help you maintain optimum oral health and keep your smile looking great.
Periodic Dental Exams
When Dr. Browning provides you with an exam, he's doing more than just checking for cavities. They evaluate your gums, bite, jaw joints, and teeth for signs of damage, wear, or changes that require a closer look. They will chart any changes they observe so that they can evaluate your oral health over time.
Each dental exam includes an oral cancer screening to look for any tissue changes that could be cancerous. Since dentists are often the first to notice abnormal lesions, routine dental exams could save your life!
Professional Dental Cleanings
When you come to our office, our dental hygienists will determine the type of dental cleaning that will be best for you. We tailor our professional hygiene appointments to meet your needs. Whether you come every six months diligently or you have some catching up to do, we can provide you with the type of professional teeth cleaning that will leave your teeth and gums clean and feeling fresh.
Regular dental cleanings – When you have little dentistry, an excellent home care routine, and professional dental cleanings on a regular basis, you may only need a routine dental cleaning to stay on track. No matter how well you brush and floss, you will not be able to remove tartar from every surface of your teeth. Our hygienists have the training and skills to gently remove tartar from those hard-to-reach areas.
Periodontal cleanings – If you have symptoms of gum disease such as bad breath and bleeding when you brush or floss, you likely suffer from a common condition called periodontal disease. We offer specialized dental cleanings that help restore your health and eliminate infection. Regular follow-up appointments will help you stay healthy and keep your infection under control.
Diagnostic Digital X-Rays
One of the best ways to detect decay quickly before it causes pain and tooth loss is with digital dental x-rays. Like digital photographs, digital x-rays are high-resolution images that we can review on a computer screen. Dr. Browning can zoom in on any suspicious areas to get a closer look. That way, we can address conditions while they are small and manageable, often saving you time and money in the process.
