Maintain Healthy Teeth & Gums With General Dental Care Services

During your first appointment, we start out by giving you a tour of our practice. You’ll discover that we utilize the most up-to-date dental technology, including an in-house lab to create your restorations. This is our way of making sure your time with us is easy as possible. When you sit down for your checkup, you’ll have our undivided attention. Our many general dental services include:

  • Dental Cleanings & Exams – We’ll thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, removing all the hardened plaque and tartar that has accumulated. Then we’ll examine your mouth for any underlying oral health issues.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – If you show signs of gum disease, we’ll eliminate the infection with a deep cleaning procedure. We may also use laser treatments to further treat the disease.
  • Preventive Services – We offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to give your teeth an extra layer of protection.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – If you struggle with dry mouth, we’ll give you much-needed relief.
  • Mouthguards – Whether you play sports or grind your teeth, we can create a custom-fit mouthguard that will protect your smile.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry includes several beneficial services that will help you maintain a beautiful smile and healthy mouth. These services include dental cleanings, dental exams, preventive services, dry mouth, gum disease treatment, and custom-fit mouthguards. General dentistry forms the cornerstone of good oral health, so we recommend you visit us routinely for your preventive dental care.

Can I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth with fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Foods that are good for your body also tend to be good for your teeth. This includes fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and calcium-rich foods like cheese. With their high water and fiber content, some fruits and veggies work almost like a toothbrush to clean plaque from teeth. Nuts are a great snack, as they contain minerals that help strengthen tooth enamel and make it more resistant to cavities.
