Our regular dental checkups will ensure optimal oral health and a radiant smile.

Aldie Family & Cosmetic Dentistry works with patients to provide the best of comprehensive dental care in the Aldie, Middleburg and South Riding areas. Dr. Kanumilli’s experience in dentistry is coupled with genuine concern for our patient’s oral health and well being.

We want all of our patients to know that the goal of preventive dental care is not to fix tooth decay after the fact, but to prevent it from occurring. Regular dental checkups are a more important aspect of oral hygiene care than most people realize. Even if you are diligent about brushing and flossing, you should visit Dr. Kanumilli at a minimum of every six months for a check up and cleaning.

As part of routine cleanings and scheduled check ups, Dr. Kanumilli or an oral hygienist will use a small metal tool called a scaler to scrape away plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. If left untreated, this can build up, causing gum disease and other forms of tooth decay. Even if you take your time brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach places. Once your teeth have been cleaned in Dr. Kanumilli’s office, they will be flossed and polished.

After your teeth have been cleaned, Dr. Kanumilli, as your Aldie family dentist, will examine your smile for signs of cavities and other problems which left untreated can lead to serious health problems.
It is important not to underestimate the importance of your regular preventive dental care to maintain healthy smiles, and our Aldie dental team will provide the quality scheduled care you need.

If you have any questions about scheduling or if we can be of service, please feel free to contact our office, and a member of our Aldie dental team will be glad to help.
