Your tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body. But it is not impregnable, and the acids in the things you eat and drink, poor oral hygiene, or teeth striking one another improperly can wear away your enamel, leaving the dentin below vulnerable. If left untreated, the result can be a cavity, an infection or even a lost tooth. Your enamel may benefit from remineralization therapy in Ashburn, Virginia, at our office. In fact, this treatment may even be able to stop tooth decay in its earliest stages.
At First Impression Dental, we place a high value on patient education, and we want to work with you to explain in terms everyone can understand how things such as your diet and proper dental care at home, combined with regular visits with our dentist, Dr. Carter Reeves and his associates, can help make certain that your tooth enamel remains strong. Frequently, fluoride treatments can bolster the strength of your enamel, but our office has other options to help your enamel stay healthy. Our goal is to use the most conservative means available to make sure that your teeth serve you well throughout your life, and strong tooth enamel is an important part of keeping your smile healthy. If you would like to discuss your options for tooth remineralization therapy, call 571-465-2114 today and schedule an examination.
