General dentistry is used to prevent the formation and development of oral health problems. While regular brushing and flossing is essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, a regular dental check-up and teeth cleaning at least twice a year will help to ensure early detection of any possible oral health conditions such as cavities and tooth decay.
During your general dentistry appointment, your general dentist or dental hygienist will use specialized tools to detect any irregularities that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Your general dentist can help detect any oral health issues so they may be treated as early as possible.
We will evaluate your entire mouth to check for any signs of gum disease or tooth decay. We also perform digital X-rays to identify impacted teeth, cavities between teeth, jaw misalignment or jaw damage, which if any are detected should be addressed as soon as possible.
During every general dentistry exam, your general dentist will perform an oral cancer screening. We will carefully examine your mouth for any discoloration, patches, suspicious bumps or sores on your gums or cheeks.
Our general dentistry procedures will help you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
Among our general dentistry procedures, your general dentist may recommend dental sealants for younger patients to help prevent tooth decay from forming. Dental sealants are used to coat the back teeth and help to fill in any crevices that may be susceptible to bacteria. We also provide fluoride treatment to strengthen the surface of the teeth and prevent tooth decay.
