The Power of Prevention
Dr. Gowda and our team partner with patients to prevent dental problems. We feel that it’s our responsibility to educate you on how to stop issues before they negatively impact your smile. Our preventive dentistry services enable us to evaluate and monitor your smile over time to identify and address potential and emerging issues before they impact the appearance, function, or comfort of your smile.
A healthy smile benefits you in so many ways, and prevention is a key component of a good oral healthcare regimen.
Checkups and Cleanings
We recommend six-month checkups and dental cleanings for all of our patients. During your exam, we’ll check your teeth for cavities, looks for signs of gum disease, conduct an oral cancer screening, and evaluate jaw joint function and bite alignment. Properly maintaining and caring for your smile can deliver a lifetime of optimal oral health.
Professional fluoride treatments and dental sealants deliver proven benefits to fight cavities. Easy and economical, these treatments are beneficial for children and adults.
As part of our full array of services, Dr. Gowda delivers comprehensive orthodontics. She recommends an orthodontic screening for kids when they reach age 7. Dr. Gowda will evaluate space and bite alignment issues and make recommendations for treatment. Adults wear braces, too, and Dr. Gowda offers traditional braces and Invisalign clear braces for our patients who want to improve the appearance and health of their smiles.
Sleep Apnea Therapy
Non-invasive sleep apnea therapy can restore peaceful slumber and eliminate dangerous apnea episodes that may threaten whole-body health. A custom-fitted nightguard may provide the relief you deserve.
We love that our patients entrust their children’s smile to our care, and we take this responsibility seriously. Setting kids upon the path to lifelong oral health is one of our greatest pleasures. Dr. Gowda recommends that kids see a dentist when their first tooth emerges, which is around a year of age. We deliver gentle care for precious smiles!
Your family will have access to a full range of services and receive outstanding care each time you visit our Virginia Beach dental office.
