What Do General Dentists Do?
We are committed to giving our patients preventive, restorative, general, family, and cosmetic dentistry.
There are dentist offices all over the country, so new patients who don’t like how their smiles look can come to our beautiful office for a free cosmetic dentistry consultation.
We will carefully listen to your goals and then work with you to make a plan that will help you reach them.
At General Dentistry, both general and cosmetic dentistry are based on the use of techniques and technology.
We have digital x-rays and intra-oral technology in our offices.
We also do preventive dentistry to make sure your teeth stay healthy and attractive.
We use some of the most effective procedures in cosmetic dentistry to give our patients smiles they are proud to show off.
With procedures like porcelain veneers, BriteSmile® teeth whitening, and Invisalign® invisible orthodontics, we can help our patients get straighter, more attractive smiles.
We also do restorative procedures, like mercury-free tooth restoration and dental implants, which allow us to fix or replace teeth that are broken, decayed, or missing.
We strongly suggest that our patients go to the dentist twice a year. In dentistry, the main goal is to keep a natural smile. The best result is to have natural teeth that are healthy with healthy gums.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you get your teeth checked about twice a year. Cleaning your teeth is a key part of having healthy teeth and gums.
We offer sedation dentistry so that our patients can feel more at ease and enjoy their visit.
You might also be able to get sedation dentistry, especially if you have to go to the dentist more often because of your anxiety.
Once the tooth is cleaned, the dentist will fill it.
Gold, silver amalgam, porcelain, and composite resin are common.
Before the treatment, the patient and dentist will choose the material.
When your tooth has infection or pulpal nerve damage, your dentist may offer a root canal.
When a tooth is broken or has a cavity, germs can enter the pulp and cause inflammation, bone loss, or tooth loss.
Oral cancer screening is a series of tests that look for signs of cancer or lesions that could turn into cancer in the mouth. With regular exams, a suspicious spot can be looked at before it gets worse.
