Start Your Routine Dental Care Today
Good dental health starts with routine care and maintenance, but what matters most is finding a trustworthy dentist that you feel 100% comfortable with. The good news? You’re always in good hands with Tolley Dental!
According to the American Dentists Association (ADA), paying a visit to the dentist at least once every 6 months is a must. With regular check-ups, you get to catch any potential problems early on and get the right treatments before they get worse. That’s why our mission is to help our patients maintain beautiful, healthy smiles with the best personal care services in Winchester, VA.
At Tolley Dental, we take a more holistic approach to oral hygiene by offering different types of dental care suited for people of all ages and conditions. Dr. Tolley and his team have years of experience perfecting their practice, so we guarantee you’ll experience the best aesthetic and general dentistry available in the city!
The best way to take care of your teeth and gums is with regular teeth cleanings. This procedure is widely known as a ‘dental prophylaxis’ and it’s one of the most crucial preventive measures for maintaining teeth and gums. After a thorough pre-cleaning dental exam, dentists will find the most suitable solution for your needs, including:
Tooth scaling – This involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and stubborn build-up that stick to your teeth and gums. Special tools are used to scrape around and between your teeth, under your gum flaps, and hard-to-reach areas in your mouth.
Debridement – When plaque or tartar stay on your teeth for too long, they calcify and harden into discolored and rough patches. Debridement uses controlled force to safely chip away the debris from your teeth and prevent them from damaging your gums.
Tooth polishing – Tooth polishing is usually offered after an oral prophylaxis to give your teeth a smoother appearance and a pearly white shine.
Our dentists will patiently remove all traces of bacteria, mineral deposits, and microorganisms from every nook and cranny of your mouth. These general cleaning services are most effective when received at least twice every year as prevention for tooth decay or gum disease.
Dental check-ups are done to examine your oral hygiene and gum health from top to bottom. Here, we take an in-depth look at your dental history records, your treatment options, and any potential complications to come up with a personalized solution. Dental exams can be done on their own, before a teeth cleaning appointment, or after a procedure. At this stage, our dentists will search for any signs of:
- Tooth decay
- Root decay
- Gum disease
- Bone disease
- Jaw problems
We’ll always be on the lookout for any teeth that need to be repaired, restored, or removed to help you get the most out of your pearly whites. Our dentists will also be happy to give you advice on how to brush your teeth and floss like a seasoned pro!
X-rays have the power to detect what we can’t see with the naked eye. Getting X-rays done is a great preventive measure against impacted wisdom teeth, gum recession, decayed fillings, bone loss, abscesses, cysts, tumors, and other similar dental issues. These so-called radiographs also allow dentists to form an accurate diagnosis by checking your mouth, jaw, face, neck, and teeth for hidden irregularities.
We offer a wide range of intraoral and extraoral X-rays at our practice depending on each patient’s conditions, including:
- Occlusal X-rays
- Bitewing X-rays
- Periapical X-rays
- Panoramic X-rays
- Tomogram X-rays
- Cephalometric X-rays
- Sialogram X-rays
- Dental computed Tomography X-rays
- Cone beam CT X-rays
- Digital Imaging
- MRI Imaging
While not every patient needs to regularly go through X-ray examinations, it all boils down to the state of your dental health. The procedure does require a bit of preparation, so we explain the process and set expectations from the get-go.
