You know that saying about an ounce of prevention? Someone was probably thinking about dental care when they made that up! Getting that twice-yearly dental checkup and cleaning can save you time, money, and inconvenience.
Your checkups are important for several reasons. All exams now include an oral cancer screening. Oral cancers are on the rise, and often aren’t diagnosed until they’re in later stages. Regular dental checkups can help detect oral cancer before it’s advanced to a stage where it’s more difficult to treat.
We can also catch periodontal/gum disease early and treat it so you keep your teeth for a lifetime. We have better dental technology and therapies than ever, but first of all, we want you to be healthy!
Sometimes accidents and emergencies happen. Call us as soon as possible if there’s an emergency; we will get you in that day to see one of our dentists.

If you jumped to this section, we understand! Cosmetic dentistry can mean teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, fixing a gummy smile, composite bonding, or a full-mouth restoration ( also called a smile makeover). At Dental Health Associates, our highly skilled dentists use the most up-to-date technology to make your smile as beautiful as it can possibly be.
Our dentists have had many, many hours of specialized training in cosmetic dentistry. In fact, the learning never stops! They are continually fine-tuning their skills through continuing education and clinics. They have also invested in the technology needed to turn any smile into a dazzling one. This includes the diagnostic equipment we use for your checkups and exams, as well as tools such as a soft tissue laser (at Staunton) that will meet the high standards our dentists have set for themselves.

Dental restorations cover a wide range of solutions to problems our patients can experience with their teeth. Filling cavities is just one part of what our dentists at Dental Health Associates can do to repair teeth that may be decayed or damaged. Our fillings are a white composite resin that is healthier for you than metal fillings, which can contain mercury. The composite material is matched to the natural color of your teeth, so your filled tooth doesn’t look any different than a non-restored tooth.
Other restorations include crowns, which completely cover a tooth, and bridges, which are used to replace a missing tooth. Tooth replacements also include full or partial dentures.
At Dental Health Associates, our patients are fortunate that we can perform root canal surgery, as well as place the crown to cover the tooth after the root canal. You can have all of your root canal work done in our office, rather than go to a separate endodontist.
We will also do minor tooth extractions for you and will work with an oral surgeon if you need your wisdom teeth removed.
