General Dentistry Services Include
During your cleaning, we skillfully remove the plaque and tartar that’s built up on your teeth, give them a good flossing, and polish them.
The high-definition images of digital X-rays show us the underlying structure of your smile without using bitewings or other uncomfortable features of conventional X-rays. They also emit less radiation, making them safer for patients.
Our team examines your teeth, gums, and mouth for any issues such as decay or damage. Besides the condition of your mouth, we’ll also evaluate the condition of any restorations you have.
The health of your gums is linked to your overall health, including your heart. With periodontal gum therapy, we restore your gums to top condition and prevent issues like bone and tooth loss.
During this examination, we check your lips, tongue, and other tissues to spot early signs of oral cancer. When we catch the growth early, it’s faster and easier to eradicate it before it spreads. If you don't treat it, cancer can grow into a more severe condition that endangers your oral and overall welfare.
By applying sealants to your teeth, we’ll prevent bacteria from collecting and resulting in decay. Children find sealants especially helpful to protect their teeth as they grow. They help to ensure a child’s teeth stay healthy well into the future.
When the inside of your tooth becomes infected, we clean out the affected tissue and fill the space to stop the infection from spreading effectively. This treatment resolves your pain and discomfort and saves the tooth.
If you grind your teeth or have a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, we create custom appliances to protect your teeth from disorders like these. They also help to relieve your neck pain and tension headaches.
When playing sports, you can never be too careful about your smile. Athletic guards effectively protect your teeth in contact sports, especially for children. We’ll ensure you get the best fit possible for maximum protection.
