We are a Fort Washington dental office and are pleased to provide individuals and families with the dental care they need to stay in excellent oral health. At James E Sullivan DDS, we understand the importance of offering comprehensive dental services so that regardless of whether you need a general teeth cleaning or a full restoration, we have the solutions you need to have a perfectly healthy and functioning smile. If you live in or around the 20744 area, we invite you to call (301) 248-8080 and schedule an appointment to meet Dr. James Sullivan and have your teeth examined.
Convenience for your Family
Understanding how busy life can be, we aim to make receiving dental care as easy as possible. Our dental office is conveniently located in Fort Washington, MD, and we offer flexible appointment times. This means that you can visit our office without taking time off work. If you have a small window or specific request, let our office staff know so that we can be as accommodating as possible. Likewise, if you have multiple people in your family, we can try to schedule your teeth cleanings for the same general time so that you only have to make one trip to the dentist office.
By keeping your teeth healthy and having them cleaned twice a year, you will decrease your risk of getting a cavity or infection. Still, accidents can often damage teeth, and there is no way to plan for when an accident may happen. As such, if you crack a tooth or one falls out while playing sports or in a car wreck, give us a call. If it is after hours, we will return your call as quickly as possible so that you can be seen and treated right away.
In our dental office, we believe in the importance of patient education. Dr. James Sullivan takes the time to speak with each patient and discuss ways that they can improve their oral health. This may involve us demonstrating how to brush teeth correctly, floss or discuss dietary changes that can strengthen teeth. For example, many people don’t know that acidic foods are bad for teeth and can directly lead to erosion and a loss of enamel. Simultaneously, diary products, nuts and crunchy vegetables can actually help to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. These are the types of things that we discuss in our dental office so that patients can improve their oral health in between visits. If you live in or around the 20744 area, we recommend that you schedule teeth cleanings for twice a year. When you do, feel free to discuss any concerns that you have and ask for tips for keeping your teeth and gums healthier.
Types of Dentistry
Dental offices throughout the country specialize in various types of dental work. We offer comprehensive dental care so that all of our patients’ oral health concerns can be addressed from one location. This starts with performing routine dental examinations and teeth cleanings. Appointments like this are essential for keeping teeth and gums healthy in the long-run. During these exams, we will look for signs of cavities and gum disease then make treatment recommendations if we identify any problems. Once teeth are healthy and clean, we can discuss any cosmetic issues or problems that may be interfering with having a perfect smile. We have a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions that can close gaps in between teeth, change the overall shape and size of teeth, straighten teeth, cover dark stains and more. This makes it possible for our patients to transform the appearance of their smile and improve their appearance at the same time.
For those that have a dental emergency and need a tooth repaired, we offer dental restorations as well. This may involve correcting a tooth that has been cracked or chipped. We can do so using dental veneers or a dental crown and make the restoration blend in with the surrounding teeth for a perfectly natural appearance. Once the restoration is complete, Dr. James Sullivan will ensure that it is durable, strong, and the perfect fit so that the tooth will function properly as it once did. Patients throughout the 20744 area, appreciate that they can have their teeth repaired rather than having them pulled.
If a tooth does fall out due to an accident or infection, we can assist with that as well. In our Fort Washington dental office, we can replace missing teeth using a variety of methods. Some of the most common methods are removable dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. While losing a tooth can be traumatic, it doesn’t have to be permanent when working with Dr. James Sullivan.
