Dentistry for Children Purcellville VA

Caring For Kids is Different
Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician

At Purcellville Dental, we understand this. Instilling good habits early, in an environment that's comfortable and fun, is essential for a lifetime of good oral health.

To ensure healthy teeth, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a first visit by 12 months old. Children’s teeth can be very susceptible to cavities at a young age due to many factors:

• Children are not able to brush well on their own. Because of this, it is important for parents to be involved in their child's daily dental care. This ensures thorough cleaning as well as the development of proper dental habits.

• Little kids tend to eat more often during the day (grazing). This results in a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.

A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will be exposed to acid when food and juice contact it. This acid often speeds up the development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the chance of your child having a cavity.

Cure for Slipping Dentures Purcellville VA

New Breakthrough Cures Loose, Slipping Dentures
Do you hate your dentures? Have you been told that you can’t get implants due to insufficient bone density? If you hate your dentures because they slip, tilt, or wander, then you will be happy to know there is a permanent and affordable solution. They are called mini-implants. Mini-implants securely anchor your dentures, eliminating slippage and trapped food. They are placed in one visit, and are virtually painless. You can look forward to eating the same day you receive them. Additionally, they can often be placed where regular implants cannot, so you can receive the benefits of mini-implant supported dentures even if you are not a candidate for regular implants. And they are much less costly than traditional implants.

Dental Implants Dentist Purcellville VA

Missing Teeth? Why Not ‘Grow’ New Ones!
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and they don’t need to be taken out at night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another office.
