Importance of Routine Dental Care

Dr. Joseph Cavallo, DDS, MAGD is a general dentist in the Stafford, VA area and offers a full range of dentistry services. We believe that routine visits with dental cleanings are essential to maintaining optimal health.

General dentistry focuses on the prevention and treatment of common dental problems such as tooth decay and tooth damage. Routine dental care also includes screening for oral cancer and periodontal disease. It’s important to discover these diseases in the early stages when treatment can be both conservative and most effective. If issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, or oral cancer are left untreated, they can cause serious damage to your overall health. When you visit Dr. Joseph Cavallo at his Stafford, VA area dentist office twice a year, not only will you be screened for such diseases but you will also receive x-rays when necessary and a teeth cleaning by one of our registered dental hygienists. Dr. Cavallo will perform an occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ) as well.

Advanced Dental Cleaning Technology

Dr. Cavallo uses a variety of comfortable and highly effective tools to assist in your professional dental cleaning, including the Cavitron® ultrasonic scaler. This advanced technology uses high frequency sound waves (instead of metal scrapers and hand scalers) to clean teeth.

The Cavitron method is not only gentle and pain free, but has been proven effective in removing tartar from both above and below the gum line. We use these ultrasonic scalers for regular cleanings as well as for more advanced periodontal treatments.
