While Dr. J. Wesley Anderson, Jr. is skilled at more advanced dentistry like cosmetic treatments and restorative procedures, he is also the dentist our community’s families have trusted for routine dental exams and dental cleanings since 1988. Trust us with all your family’s general dentistry needs in our Virginia Beach dentist office.
Regular Dental Cleanings And Dental Exams Are Important
Through regular dental cleanings and dental exams, Virginia Beach dentist Dr. Anderson can help you maintain excellent oral health and avoid more invasive, costly procedures. You should see him every six months for a professional cleaning and exam. Your exam will give him the opportunity to take X-rays and conduct screenings for periodontal disease and oral cancer. He will also let you know if your teeth are in need of restorative treatment.
We Offer Several General Dentistry Treatments
In addition to dental exams and dental cleanings, we care for the health of your gums through scaling and root planing. We also provide treatments that can assist in protecting your teeth from decay:
- Dental sealants
- Fluoride treatment
- Fluoride varnish
Protect Your Teeth From Nightly Grinding
If you wake up in the morning with an aching jaw and an unexplained headache, you could be suffering from bruxism, or what is commonly called teeth grinding. Don’t wear your teeth away while you sleep — let Dr. Anderson fit you for a bruxism mouthguard.
Another way our office can help you protect your teeth from injury is with a custom athletic mouthguard. You might find that you clench your teeth while you run, or you might be concerned that your young athlete might damage his or her teeth through an unexpected collision on the field. Keep your teeth safe and intact with sports guards made just for you.
