Extractions Lansdowne, VA

Fillings Lansdowne, VA


Composite fillings act as a dentistry solution for problems such as tooth decay or cracks. Composite fillings are tooth-colored resin with excellent physical properties used to restore decayed teeth. They have strong wear and fracture resistance with excellent polishability. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any disfigured teeth to create excellent esthetics.

Night Guards Lansdowne, VA

Night Guards

Night guards are retainer-like soft or hard plastic pieces that cover either the top or bottom set of teeth. Nightguards are first line of treatments for sleep bruxism which is, unfortunately, very common among kids and adults. Custom made nightguards are best to cushion your teeth from the force of clenching and prevent the teeth from grinding together, causing damaged teeth, headaches, jaw pain and inflamed and receded gums. Dr. Abtahi uses her iTero scanner to take a 3-D image of the mouth and have a lab-made NG printed from the digital images taken at the office.

Call our office for a consultation if you or a family member suffers from Bruxism.

Oral Cancer Screenings Lansdowne, VA

Oral Cancer Screenings

Nobody wants to hear that they may have oral cancer. Although it can be fatal, it is easier to treat the earlier it is diagnosed. For this reason, Dr. Abtahi performs the oral cancer screening every 3-6 months at the recall appointments.

Oral cancer will typically show up as white or red patches or lesions inside of your mouth. You may even notice the lesions on your tongue or on the floor of your mouth. Some patients can experience symptoms such as difficulty with swallowing, bleeding in the mouth, or even swelling in the face or neck later on if the cancer is not detected.

Preventative Dentistry Lansdowne, VA

Preventative Dentistry

It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two minutes (or longer), though most people rush through this time. You need to make sure that you reach every side of each tooth, including the inside and outside. To help keep your breath fresh, you should also brush your tongue. Then, you can begin flossing. It is very important not to skip your regular check-up appointments every 3-6 months.

Root Canals Lansdowne, VA

Root Canals

Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.

Sealants Lansdowne, VA


When we apply a dental sealant, we paint a clear resin coating on top of your teeth. This makes your teeth smooth by covering and sealing the depressions and grooves that are commonly found on teeth. It is essentially a protective coating against tooth decay and cavities.

The most common place to paint sealants is on back teeth, molars, since they have more grooves on the surfaces. They can also be very hard to reach, even if you brush your teeth regularly. It is recommended on permanent molars in children and adults.

TMJ Treatment Lansdowne, VA

TMJ Treatment

At Your Community Smile, we are proud to offer treatment for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, otherwise known as TMJ which can provide relief for our patients. TMJ is caused by an inflammation in the temporomandibular joint, which acts as a sliding hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull.

What are the symptoms of TMJ?
TMJ causes pain and discomfort along the jawbone and can make it painful to even move your jaw. While jaw pain and discomfort don’t always equate to TMJ dysfunctions. If you are also experiencing headaches, trouble chewing, or pain in the neck, face, jaw, and ear, you’re more than likely experiencing TMJ problems.

Sports Mouth Guards Lansdowne, VA

Sports Mouth Guards

As dentists, we are determined to make sure your mouth and teeth are well protected during sports activities, no matter what your passion is. To do this, we offer many different types of mouth guards, depending on the types of activities in which you are involved. There are some mouth guards for low-impact sports and others for high-impact sports.

Mouth guards not only protect your mouth and teeth, but also have other purposes. Mouth guards will help decrease the impact if you get hit in the jaw. They have also been shown to increase an athlete’s performance.

Many people clench their teeth while playing, which can give them temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ). Clenching your jaw the whole time can be quite exhausting. Mouth guards help to relax your jaw, allowing you to completely focus on the game!

Teeth Whitening Lansdowne, VA

Teeth Whitening

A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. Certain foods and beverages, such as wine and coffee, stain the teeth and contribute to discoloration. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth. Additionally, the process actually rids the teeth of plaque and tartar that tend to lead to dental problems.
