Our practice is based on the prevention of dental problems and the long-term comfort and beautiful appearance of your teeth. Our mission is to help you to NOT need continuous dental repairs.
What to Expect on Your First Visit
On your first visit to our Springfield, VA office, Dr. Wilson Aguilar-Garcia will perform the following diagnostic exams and screenings:
- A full mouth series of x-rays
- Diagnostic photos
- An oral cancer screening
- A periodontal screening
You will then have a regular dental cleaning by either Dr. Aguilar-Garcia or a licensed hygienist. First, they will use an ultrasonic cleaner and a water sprayer to loosen and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Then any additional plaque and tartar will be scraped off your teeth using a metal tool called a hand scraper. The dentist may also sand and smooth the roots of your teeth in order to remove plaque and other bacteria. Finally, your teeth will be brushed with a rotary toothbrush and a gritty type of toothpaste that polishes and cleans your teeth.
