Role of a Family Dentist
Dr. Chung received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the College of Dental Surgery at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. As a family dentist, his primary concern is preventative care for your teeth and gums and restorative treatment as necessary. He will ensure that:
- Any tooth decay is removed
- Plaque and tarter are kept to a minimum
- Any cavities are filled
- Your gums are healthy
Our Office Atmosphere
If you or your family is apprehensive about visiting the dentist, Softouch Dental Care is not your typical practice. We have carefully designed our dental office so that you do not feel like you are in the dentist’s chair. Our warm, inviting atmosphere allows us to take care of your oral health while you relax. We offer the following amenities:
- Virtual reality movies with goggles
- Refreshment bar
- Warm blankets
- Neck support pillows
- Extra-padded dental chairs
- Noise-canceling headphones
- iPods with more than 20,000 selections
We only see a few patients a day, which allows us to give individualized attention to each patient and treat you as an honored guest instead of a number. We want you to have a positive experience at Softouch Dental Care, so you and your family will be more likely to maintain your appointments. Regular appointments will help our dental team identify any oral abnormalities in the early stages, to avoid more costly and invasive treatment.
Problems Associated with Poor Oral Health
If you have excessive bacteria in your mouth, you can breathe it into your lungs, which may result in respiratory diseases like pneumonia. This is especially common in those with periodontal or gum disease, which is caused by poor oral hygiene.
Research reveals that people with gum disease are two times more likely to develop coronary artery disease and are at an increased risk for heart attack and stroke. If you have diabetes and you develop periodontal disease, you are more likely to have health complications due to a potentially dangerous increase in blood sugar.
Because gum disease begins with no symptoms, it is important that you seek regular checkups to avoid jeopardizing your overall health. If you do have gum disease, we can perform periodontal therapy to remove the affected tissue and restore your oral health.
