General Dentistry

Everyone should see a general dentist for routine oral health examinations, twice-yearly cleanings, and treatment of routine oral health complications, such as minor tooth decay.

Visit a general dentist a minimum of one time every six months. Patients who visit a general dentist can expect professional oral health care, as well as education and advisement about self-care between office visits.

General dentistry addresses both preventive and restorative care for your family’s smile needs. It encompasses a wide range of services including:

  • Oral Hygiene: It is the most effective means of preventing dental problems such as cavities and gum disease
  • Preventative Care Visits: It essential to maintaining a healthy smile. Healthy patients should have their teeth cleaned and examined every six months in order to encourage healthy smiles and address oral health problems while they are smaller and simpler to correct
  • Dental Fillings: Fillings are used to restore the portion of a tooth that has been damaged by decay. Fillings return both form and function to the afflicted tooth.
  • Root Canal: removes diseased nerve tissues inside of a tooth before the tooth is no longer functional
  • Sedation Dentistry: Your pain and anxiety are kept under control as you remain in a safe level of sedation throughout your dental procedure
  • Children’s Dentistry: Establishing good oral hygiene habits at a young age is important for empowering your child with a healthy smile as they grow up
  • TMJ Treatment: Temporomadibular Joint disorder can cause headaches, muscle pain and complications opening and closing your jaw. Thankfully we have non-surgical therapies that can help
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal: Sometimes wisdom teeth cause pain, infection, or crowding of your other teeth. A simple exam is all that you need to find out whether or not your wisdom teeth need to be removed.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: During your evaluation and cleanings, we will assess your mouth for signs of cancer, including abnormalities in the oral tissues and cancerous growths or pre-cancers. You should let us know if you notice problems chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving any part of your mouth or tongue.
