Choosing A Periodontist

LVI-Trained Dentist Serving Oakton, Vienna, McLean and Nearby Northern Virginia

The health of your gums directly affects the health of your teeth and jawbone, and even your overall health. Gums are also an important part of a beautiful smile. Before you can have beautiful gums, you must have healthy gums. Choosing a periodontist in Virginia that is right for you 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.

When choosing a periodontist in Virginia, make sure they have the most advanced technology. Laser dentistry has changed the face of gum treatment, making it safe, precise, and greatly easing the recovery process.

Dr. Michael Chung uses lasers to remove the bacteria from your gums and precisely remove any decayed tissue.

Follow Through

As you're choosing a periodontist, keep in mind he or she 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. 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 schedules 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.
