When was the last time you or a member of your family went to the dentist? The American Dental Association recommends people receive a checkup and cleaning once every six months. Regular visits with your Dallas dentist, Dr. Diep Truong, are essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. At Viva Dental Family Dentistry, we provide quality dental care for the entire family. In today’s blog, Dr. Truong explains a few of our family dental services.

Checkups and Cleanings

A checkup allows Dr. Truong to watch for the warning signs of serious dental issues, such as gum disease or tooth decay. Early detection enables Dr. Truong to prescribe treatment before these problems develop any further. Using digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, Dr. Truong can provide an in-depth analysis of your dental health. With a dental cleaning, our talented dental hygienists can remove discoloration and plaque from your teeth. If left untreated, plaque leads to gum inflammation, which over time can cause gum disease. Cleanings help protect and preserve your smile.

Fillings and Orthodontics

Often, our smiles are marred with dental imperfections. Stains, tooth decay, and misalignment can make people feel self-conscious or embarrassed about their smiles. Dr. Truong understands the importance of a beautiful smile, and offers the latest in dental care correct and improve your teeth, including:

  • Orthodontics, to correct misalignment and close gaps between teeth.
  • Composite fillings, which can provide natural looking cavity repair.
  • Crowns, to protect tooth structure and prevent further infection.
