Choosing a Periodontist
Serving Northern Virginia including Oakton, Fairfax, Reston, Alexandria, Arlington and Washington D.C.
The health of your gums directly affects the health of your teeth and jawbone, and even your overall health. Beautiful gums are also an important part of a beautiful smile. Before you can have beautiful gums, you must have healthy gums. Choosing the right periodontist is the first step in having healthy, beautiful gums.
Periodontists do more than treat your gums. They also place dental implants. Implant placement is a serious surgery requiring special training and experience. When you choose a periodontist you need to know that you are in good hands.
Your periodontist should have the most advanced technology. Laser dentistry has changed the face of gum treatment, making it safe, precise, and greatly easing the recovery process.
Northern Virginia cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Chung, uses lasers to remove the bacteria from your gums and precisely remove any decayed tissue.
Your periodontist should also be a skilled cosmetic dentist who can perform gum recontouring once any disease has been treated, restoring not only the health, but also the beauty of your smile.
Dr. Chung will address the health of your gums first, and if needed he can then reshape your gums revealing the beauty of your teeth.
Education and Prevention
Healthy gums start with good oral hygiene. Proper brushing and flossing and regular cleanings can help prevent gum disease and the damage that it causes.
Dr, Chung believes in educating his patients and helping them take good care of their smile so that problems do not arise in the first place.
A Comfortable, Relaxing Experience
Fear is the number one reason that most people put off dental care. When you visit your periodontist you should receive personal care that puts you at ease in a clean and pampering environment.
Dr. Chung accepts only a few patients every day so that he will have plenty of time to spend with you. He also offers sedation dentistry to relieve your anxiety and to make the experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
