Our hope for you is that your experience of dental damage, decay, and pain over the years is minimal. Drs. Brandon and Julia White and the rest of the team at White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry would like nothing more than to be your trusted partners through this journey. With preventive dentistry in Goode, VA, we keep a close eye on your smile and find potential issues at the earliest possible stages, so your treatment is simple. Patients of all ages are welcome!
We strongly recommend that children and adults alike attend at least two evaluations and hygiene appointments a year. This allows our team to closely inspect your teeth, gums, bite, and other oral structures to determine if any change or damage occurred since your last visit. By locating potential problems at the earliest stages, we minimize discomfort and offer easy treatments that save you money. An in-depth cleaning from one of our excellent hygienists keeps your teeth refreshed and polished. Over time, plaque that’s missed by regular brushing and flossing turns into hard deposits known as calculus. These deposits can’t be removed through regular at-home oral hygiene, which is why it’s important to have them cleared away by a professional. We want you to leave with a smile that looks and feels better than ever!
Do you grind your teeth while you sleep? This little habit (called bruxism) can cause your teeth harm in the long term, so it’s important to address it. But how do you stop doing something that you have little control over? Our dentists can provide you with a custom-made nightguard that separates your upper and lower teeth. That way, your enamel remains intact—plus, your jaw may feel better in the morning!
Did you know that one person in America dies every hour every day from oral cancer? It is the sixth most common kind of cancer and can be serious if it is caught too late. That’s why we conduct an oral cancer screening at every checkup and cleaning appointment. This quick, painless exam enables us to catch oral cancer while it’s still developing, increasing the odds of beating it! Our dentists are highly trained and can recognize the signs of oral cancer for early detection and treatment.
Everything is digital these days—including your dental X-rays! Exposing you to 90 percent less radiation than their traditional counterpart, digital X-rays allow us to immediately inspect areas that are difficult to see with the naked eye like between your teeth and beneath the gums’ surface. Using our digital X-rays, we can show you the issues we see in your oral structures, explaining problems and providing solutions that can improve your oral health.
