Full-Service General Dentistry
While it may not seem so directly connected to you from the outset, your oral health very much correlates to your overall health and well-being. General dentistry covers any and all services and treatments focused on assisting your healthy teeth and mouth, from routine teeth cleaning and complete checkups to tooth fillings and dental crowns and bridges.
Here is a quick breakdown of some common general dental services we provide to our patients:
Cleanings and Checkups: Teeth cleaning and routine checkups should be performed at least twice a year to help you maintain great dental health, strong teeth go a long way in preventing dental care complications.
Fluoride Treatment: Topical fluoride treatments help strengthen the enamel of your teeth to prevent tooth decay and protect your teeth against acid and bacterial attacks.
Halitosis Treatment: Halitosis is a fancy way of saying bad breath. When you come to us with a complaint of persistently bad breath, we work to identify the root of the problem and provide proper treatment and dental care so your mouth becomes healthy once more and your breath stays fresh.
Mouth Guards: Custom dental mouth guards from our office can help you prevent injury to your teeth and mouth while playing sports and can also save your teeth from the side effects of bruxism.
Dental Bonding: Composite dental bonding can be used to improve the appearance of cracked, chipped and stained teeth in a natural-looking way.
Tooth Fillings: We use metal-free, tooth-colored fillings to restore the look and function of decayed teeth.
Tooth Extraction: We perform comfortable, pain-free tooth extraction to remove teeth that are damaged beyond repair. Talk to us about the anesthesia and sedation options we offer to give you a relaxing experience during the procedure.
