Maintain Your Great Smile With Routine Care

Your daily brushing and flossing are important in the fight against tooth decay and gum infections. However, you also need to get dental checkups a few times each year to keep your smile as healthy as it can be. You can make appointments to see us for any of these services:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – Preventive treatment goes a long way toward eliminating the need for more costly, invasive procedures. During your regular visits, we remove plaque and tartar that have built up on your teeth. We also keep an eye out for any signs of  tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems.
  • Dental Sealants – Sealants are a special coating that shields your teeth against harmful bacteria. Getting sealants does not interfere with your ability to bite and chew, but it reduces your risk of cavities.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Often a deep cleaning technique known as scaling and root planing is enough to eliminate the source of your periodontal infection. This is similar to what we do during a regular cleaning, only we also remove tartar from below your gumline.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – We are prepared to repair teeth after a dental emergency. However, a custom-made mouthguard can spare you or a loved one from needing emergency dental care. A properly fitted mouthguard is often the difference between a sore lip and a lost or broken tooth.
  • Bruxism Mouthguards – If you grind your teeth in your sleep, then you may experience headaches, jaw pain, and other problem. One of our nightguards can stop the grinding and allow your pain to go away.

We want to do more than save your smile at our practice. We also want to make it easier to get the treatment you need. That is why we offer a Dental Savings Plan for those without insurance. By signing up, you get discounts on services and you can better manage the cost of your care. Ask about it today.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What does general dentistry include?

General dentistry includes beneficial services that will help you maintain a beautiful smile and healthy mouth. These services include dental cleanings, dental exams, 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.

Who needs dental sealants?

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating. We use them on back teeth, which have grooves on the chewing surface where bacteria tends to accumulate. This makes these teeth especially prone to cavities. We often recommend applying sealants to a child’s premolars and permanent molars as soon as they come in – around ages 6 and 12, respectively. According to the CDC, school-age children without sealants have nearly three times more cavities than children with them. Cavity-prone adults may benefit from sealants too.

Why should I go to a general dentist?

Visiting a general dentist regularly is the best way to fulfill several dental needs in one location. Our dental practitioner has the training as well as experience to perform the services you require to keep your gums and teeth healthy and gorgeous. From regular exams and cleanings to full-mouth restorations and dental surgery, you can get a wide array of services here.
