Dental FAQs in Reston, VA
How often should I go to the dentist?
This answer can vary from person to person depending on their needs, but for most, Dr. Myles would recommend attending at least two checkups and cleaning appointments each year. These preventive services give Dr. Myles the chance to take care of minor issues as early as possible, and professional cleanings help remove plaque from those areas in your mouth your toothbrush and floss can’t reach at home.
Can I bring my child to Smiles by Myles?
Yes! As a father of three himself, Dr. Myles completely understands how important convenience is for family dental care. If you have any growing smiles at home, they and you are always welcome to our practice. Our team has experience with patients of all ages and can provide the age-appropriate services children need to maintain happy and healthy smiles through every stage of development.
What should I do if one of my teeth hurts?
For minor toothaches, start by flossing and rinsing around the tooth to remove anything that might be stuck between the teeth. If the pain doesn’t go away, or if it’s very severe, go ahead and give our office a call. We’ll let you know what to do to reduce your discomfort and schedule an appointment so we can fix your problem right away.
