We Accept Maryland Health Smiles Dental Program
With general dentistry, Dr. Woo and our team prevent serious dental conditions from starting. Common issues like gum disease and tooth decay can easily be avoided, greatly reducing your need for fillings, crowns, or replacement teeth in the future. We use advanced technology, things like digital X-rays and the VELscope oral cancer system, to promote early detection and maximize your time with us.
The American Dental Association recommends that beginning at age one, everyone should visit a general dentist for six-month checkups and cleanings. At your six-month visit, the dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and jaw joints to ensure no problems have arisen. Our hygienist cleans built-up plaque from below the gumline – only a professional can remove hardened plaque that forms on even the most diligent brusher’s teeth. Regular exams and cleanings optimize your oral and systemic health.
Did you know that a healthy mouth is a sign of a healthy body? Mounting research has linked gum disease – an affliction that affects 85% of adults – to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, and pregnancy complications. At our general dental offices, we strive to give you the healthy mouth and high quality of life you deserve!
