General Dentistry

image 7Are you in need of a checkup? Has it been a while since you have your teeth cleaned? Do you have a lot of plaque buildup on your teeth?

As a general dentistry practice, we offer a full range of dental services, from functional through cosmetic. Healthy teeth are the foundation for a beautiful smile and a healthy body.

Great dental care begins with going to the dentist to prevent and treat dental problems. The methods and techniques used for children (pediatric) dentistry differ from those of adults. Our staff of wonderful dentists provides dental services in a kid-friendly and caring manner. This helps your children to view dental visits with a positive attitude.

Oral hygiene is essential to a person’s overall health. In fact, problems that start out in the mouth can spread to other parts of the body. A typical visit to the dentist involves a thorough cleaning procedure. Plaque, or hard deposits, are removed from the surface of teeth and even from the gums.

General dentistry practices sometimes offer some cosmetic procedures for patients. For example, veneers can be applied to teeth that are cracked, chipped, stained or damaged in other ways. One of our goals is to help our patients when they are in need. We strive to see our patients the same day if they are in any pain. Emergencies are worked into our daily schedule. This may cause us to sometimes run behind on scheduled appointments, but you may appreciate it when you have an emergency of your own.

At all routine dental examination visits we:

  • Check teeth and gums.
  • Screen for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Check all muscles which allow jaw movements. Teeth clenching and grinding can give rise to severe wear and even tooth fracture, making teeth very sensitive. Early detection prevents the need for more complex dentistry later on.
  • Offer advice on preventative care.

We also offer services for the prevention of cavities (such as sealants and fluoride treatments), as well as treatments for sensitive teeth, gum disease, and TMJ problems. If any of your teeth have cavities, dental fillings can be used to repair the damage and prevent the development of a more serious dental problem.

Today, tooth-colored resins are used to replace areas of weak or damaged enamel. In addition to fixing cavities, fillings are often used to repair cracked, broken, or worn enamel.

As healthcare professionals, it is our pleasure to provide the services and procedures that can keep your smile at its best. Routine dental care is your strongest line of defense against the diseases that are most likely to damage your smile.

We offer a variety of general dentistry procedures that can be customized to meet the unique needs of each of our patients. Call us today at (480) 435-9731
