Check-ups & Cleanings in Leesburg, VA
Dr. Stephen Mayo, Dr. Ryan Mayo, and Dr. Gregory Mayo strongly recommend that patients of all ages have at least two exams and two recare (cleaning) appointments a year at our office. Even those who practice diligent oral hygiene at home can develop problems that go unnoticed for long periods of time leading to extensive treatment needs. One of our primary goals at Mayo Family Dentistry is to detect unnoticed problems that are not painful early on so treatment solutions are simple, affordable, and pain free.
The first step towards helping you improve your overall health and smile is for our team to form a complete evaluation of your teeth, gums, and other important oral structures. During your appointment, one of our doctors will perform a thorough oral examination and take the necessary digital radiographs that allow us to learn about the areas that can’t be viewed with the naked eye. After noting areas of decay or damage and diagnosing the causes behind any discomfort, we can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan of action that treats these issues in a way that best fits your schedule, budget, and personal preferences.
Once we’ve been able to address any immediate concerns, a recare appointment will do wonders in helping you maintain healthy teeth and gums. Over time, plaque forms on tooth enamel, and if it’s not removed in a timely manner, it can leave hard, damaging deposits. Only a professional hygienist can remove mineralized tartar with ultrasonic instruments. Painless hygiene appointments are our goal so we encourage all patients to communicate with our staff to address any specific needs to ensure a great experience.
