What’s So Great About General Dentistry?

March 1, 2016

How much do you know about general dentistry? Are you aware that it’s the field of dental care that helps you keep your smile in good condition (while addressing issues that arise). If you’re not sure why we suggest you incorporate general dental care into your life on a consistent basis, we recommend you become more familiar with the comprehensive way in which we protect your oral health. Have some questions specific to your needs? Schedule a preventive dental checkup and cleaning – we will be happy to take time to provide you with answers.

We Help Prevent Problems

One essential portion of general dentistry is the goal of keeping your smile healthy by avoiding the development of concerns. We call this approach “preventive care” because we put measures in place, so you can avoid problems altogether. Potential oral health issues may include tooth decay, gingivitis, or oral cancer. As a result, we offer dental checkups to monitor your smile and its tissues, dental cleanings to help you keep your teeth and gums extremely clean, and even oral cancer screenings to detect changes immediately.

We Restore Your Smile If Problems Arise

Let’s say an issue does occur. This is not uncommon, since keeping up with daily care (and avoiding unexpected accidents) is not always possible. For instance, you may require general dentistry to resolve problems like cavity development, gum disease, a broken tooth, or tooth loss. We offer periodontal therapy to help you get your gum health back in good condition. Our services also include fillings, crowns, and root canals to address decay and infection. Devices like partials, full dentures, and bridges will address missing teeth. Fortunately, we will also assist you with functional problems (like bruxism and TMJ disorder) with gentle therapy.
