What Is General Dentistry?
There’s no official definition for what is general dentistry. There are some well-defined dental specialties, but general dentists can do everything specialists can do–and everything else, too!
However, when we talk about general dentistry, we are usually referring to dental procedures that seek to maintain, improve, or restore oral health.
Our general dentistry services include:
These oral devices are worn over the teeth to protect against potential blows to the face. They have been known to prevent concussions, facial lacerations and fractured teeth. We make custom-made mouth guards for athletes of all ages. We also offer night guards for patients who suffer from nocturnal bruxism.
This common condition affects more than 200,000 patients a year. The symptoms include loud snoring and the feeling of being tired throughout the day, even after a full night of sleep. With our custom-made oral appliances, we can position your jaw in a way that allows you to breathe properly and get the rest you need.
We recommend visiting us for a routine dental checkup every six months. This will help keep your oral health in optimal condition and will also allow us to detect and prevent dental issues from forming or developing further.
Dental sealants are used to help prevent the back teeth from trapping bacteria and developing damage or decay. They consist of plastic, acrylic materials that are painted onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
Your bad breath may be coming from an underlying issue that can’t be fixed or corrected with chewing gum or breath mints. While these things may temporarily mask them, they won’t eliminate the source. Our halitosis treatment will work to detect and eliminate the source.
Inlays and Onlays
These restorative dental treatments are known as “indirect fillings.” They are custom-made restorations that are made outside of the mouth and can be used to restore a tooth with moderate damage or decay. They are typically used when the damage is too extensive for a traditional filling but not enough to warrant a full dental crown.
Our tooth-colored fillings consist of a hard material that is used to replace natural tooth enamel that has been lost due to decay. Traditional fillings are made of metal, which can compromise the look of your smile. With our composite materials, we can closely match your fillings to the color of your natural teeth.
Dental crowns are a restorative treatment that give your tooth an entirely new exterior. A sheath can be placed over your tooth to restore its strength, protect it from further damage, and possibly even give it a beautiful appearance.
Dental bridges are tooth replacements that are fixed in your mouth. They don’t have to be removed for cleaning and they let you eat a full range of foods. They depend on your natural teeth for support.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are ceramic fillings that we use when normal tooth-colored fillings aren’t strong enough to repair your cavities. They look beautiful and can be very long-lasting.
Not all dental problems can wait until your regular appointment. Some need to be dealt with right away. They can be painful or debilitating. We can handle your dental emergencies–it’s better to see a dentist for these situations than to see an emergency room doctor.
Lasers in dentistry can give better and faster results for many different treatments. They can also make for a more comfortable procedure.
Root Canal Therapy
If you have an infected tooth, root canal therapy can remove the infection, which can save your tooth–and potentially your life!
When a tooth is likely to cause more problems if it’s retained, or if we can’t save a tooth, we might recommend an extraction. This includes wisdom teeth extractions and removal of damaged or infected teeth.
Children have different dental care needs, but that doesn’t mean they need to see a different dentist. In fact, there are some benefits for the entire family to see the same dentist. We can provide dental care to your entire family.
