Dental Concerns in Woodbridge, VA

Why Visit the Dentist?

Regular dental care is the foundation of a healthy, lasting smile. The condition of your teeth and gums also impacts your overall physical health and your risk for a range of health concerns related to inflammation.

Patients with poor oral health can also experience cardiovascular disease and systemic health issues, often as a result of advanced gum disease and a breakdown of the barrier between harmful bacteria in the mouth and the bloodstream. Maintaining a healthy and stable smile will support and promote overall good health.

Dr. Cavallo recommends twice a year of routine dental care visits as part of ongoing oral health maintenance. During these visits, our team is able to take the time to get to know you as an individual and address risk factors unique to you and your smile.

We screen for decay, gum disease, and oral cancer in order to spot and treat problems in the early stages when conservative measures can be effective. If you experience dental concerns between visits, contact our office so that we can schedule an appointment if needed.

Tooth Pain

Sudden, intense tooth pain or increased sensitivity can signal a developing problem that could have a variety of causes. Tooth pain should be addressed by Dr. Cavallo as soon as possible to avoid more serious or complex problems. Dr. Cavallo will recommend appropriate care to address pain and restore dental health.

Bleeding Gums

Do your gums bleed often when brushing your teeth? Gum disease is progressive and will continue to develop, threatening the integrity of the gums and the teeth when left untreated. Dr. Cavallo will evaluate the stage and severity of your gum disease and can provide treatment for the symptoms and effects of gum disease.

When treated early, gum disease can often be resolved with conservative treatment. Our team works with patients on an individual basis to identify risk factors for periodontal concerns and provide personalized recommendations for oral hygiene between visits. If you would like to know more about how we diagnose and treat bleeding gums, please visit Bleeding gums.  

Missing Teeth

Leaving missing teeth untreated can lead to more serious issues. One or more lost teeth will have a far-reaching effect on many aspects of your overall wellness and daily quality of life. A missing tooth will set into motion a cascade of changes that can affect dental health, the fit of the bite, and your appearance.

Dr. Cavallo has advanced training and years of experience in tooth replacement. He offers complete care for dental implants under one roof and can restore your smile with natural-looking results. From dental bridges to dentures to implants, we offer a comprehensive approach to missing teeth.
