When it comes to helping patients maintain a beautiful and healthy smile, Short Pump Family Dentistry recognizes the critical importance of preventive dental care. This involves routine cleanings and checkups twice a year for most patients. During these visits, Dr. Tse can carefully evaluate all aspects of your dental health and detect problems at their earliest, most treatable stage. By protecting your oral health, we are not only helping you avoid disruptive and more costly dental complications in the future, but we are also protecting your overall health. Oral conditions such as advanced gum disease can pose serious threats to your body if not treated in a timely manner.
At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we proudly treat patients of all ages, ranging from tiny tots to senior citizens. Regardless of your stage of life, routine dental visits are undoubtedly one of the best ways to maintain a confident and healthy smile. While our skill set in dental care is expansive, you’ll also find that our Richmond office takes extra measures to reduce your stress and anxiety along the way. We offer a soothing, comfortable environment, and we provide flexible scheduling and easy financing plans to eliminate the extra hassle. Your entire family will receive top-ranked care at Short Pump Family Dentistry.
During your routine visit, you will be cared for by one of our friendly hygienists as well as meet with Dr. Tse for a comprehensive evaluation and discussion about your dental health. We will perform a detailed exam, which may include probing, charting and digital x-rays. We will also access your gum health and screen for oral cancer during your exam.
Another important component of your preventive visit is a professional cleaning. While diligent brushing and flossing at home can significantly reduce your risk for decay and infection, a professional cleaning from your dentist is the only way to remove stubborn plaque once it has accumulated and hardened on your teeth and gums. We will clean and polish all surfaces of your teeth to reveal a whiter, fresher and healthier smile.
At the conclusion of your exam, Dr. Tse will meet with you to discuss any potential dental issues as well as address your specific concerns or questions. If a dental problem is present, you can trust us to handle it. Our office offers a full menu of services in general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. In some cases, we may be able to repair your smile the same day.
