Arlington, VA Family Dentist Provides Dental Services For Children
Arlington, VA, May 04, 2014 /KidZNewswire/ -- "Being able to provide dental care to children stems from my practice of family dentistry. And family dentistry is similar to general dentistry. The two mainly focus on preventative treatments for tooth decay and gum disease," explains Dr. Gregory, Arlington, VA family dentist.
Family dentistry provides treatments for the general maintenance of oral hygiene and health. For example, annual dental exams and cleanings are categorized as preventative care, which is the core of general and family dental services.
While Dr. Gregory strives to improve patients' oral health, some people need restorative care or want cosmetic treatments. Most of all, Dr. Gregory focuses on family dentistry because she is able to treat the entire family, from older adults to toddlers.
Why is dental care important for kids? It's a common belief that dental decay isn't a problem for children who have primary teeth because permanent teeth replace them anyways. However, well after the primary teeth fall out, the cavity-causing bacteria can still affect the permanent teeth. That's why dental care is just as important for children. Plus, early dental interception can instill better dental habits that can carry into adult life.
As a family dentist, Dr. Gregory has the knowledge and experience to handle the dental needs of all ages. From older adults to tiny tikes, Dr. Gregory provides an array of services to prevent and treat dental decay, dental trauma and cosmetic imperfections. Some of the leading services she offers include, dental veneers, dental implants, teeth whitening and cosmetic fillings.
