Arlington VA Dentist | The Impact of Regular Visits to Our Office on Your Overall Health

At Cusumano and Stuver Dentistry, we strive to provide the highest quality dental care possible to the Arlington, Virginia area. Our practice has been in operation for more than fifty years, and a large portion of our team has been with us for more than a decade. This kind of continuing experience has led to some patients coming to us since our office opened its doors! Thanks to both our dedicated patients that continue to return to our dental office as well as each new patient, our unique approach to dentistry and the care we offer improves with each visit.

The Connection Between Oral Health and Overall Health

If left untreated, issues with your oral health can affect the rest of your body. Your mouth teems with bacteria that are mostly harmless – some are even necessary. However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that cause infections not only for your teeth but have negative repercussions for your overall health. Dental infections have the ability to negatively affect your heart and brain as well as make other systemic issues like diabetes and heart disease worse. A healthy mouth makes for a healthy body!

Continuous Preventive Care

At Cusumano and Stuver Dentistry, we recognize the potential for problems with your oral health to contribute to problems with your overall health. Our commitment is to provide you with the highest quality level of care, whether it’s your first or your hundredth time coming through our doors. 

We believe in preventive care and early detection of problems in order to foster optimal oral health. For that reason, while always checking for signs of gum disease and tooth decay, we give every patient an oral cancer screening at each and every visit, even if you’re just in for a cleaning.

Teeth cleanings are an effective preventive measure for the majority of oral health issues. The removal of plaque and tartar by our experienced dental team will leave your mouth clean and healthy. If you need extra care, we offer an array of procedures to ensure the overall health of your mouth, including implants, root canals, and Invisalign.

Call Cusumano and Stuver today, and we’ll work to create an individualized treatment plan that’s right for you. We can’t wait to meet you!
