What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry refers to the basic dental procedures offered by most dental practices. This includes teeth cleaning, oral exams, cavity fillings, extractions, and more. Preventive dentistry is a large part of our general services, as the ultimate goal of dental care is to maintain your dental and oral health. When all goes well, your teeth and gums stay healthy and your teeth stay in place for your lifetime.

Benefits of General Dentistry

General dentistry offers a variety of benefits: 

  • Keep your natural teeth. Preventive dental care can help keep your natural teeth healthy and in place for your lifetime. 
  • Maintain your gum health. Keeping your teeth healthy also helps keep your gums healthy, preventing gum disease.
  • Early detection of oral health concerns. Routine oral exams can identify any potential issues that may need to be addressed, such as oral cancer. Early detection often results in a better outcome. 

Services We Offer

We provide the following general dental services: 

Teeth cleanings. It is recommended that you have your teeth cleaned routinely to remove plaque and tartar that builds up on the teeth. 

Oral exams. Part of your routine dental appointment includes an oral exam to assess the health of your gums and the other soft tissues of your mouth.

X-ray diagnostics. Once a year you should have X-rays to check for potential problems that are hard to see or unable to be seen with an intraoral scope.

Fillings. We provide fillings for cavities that develop in your tooth enamel. Detecting cavities early and filling them can prevent further damage to your teeth.

Extractions. When a tooth is decayed or damaged beyond saving, it will need to be extracted, or pulled. 

Oral Bacterial DNA Testing. Simple salivary diagnostics that help us to treat, heal and inspire oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

We recommend brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day. If you are prone to gum disease or cavities, it may be in your best interest to brush and floss your teeth after each meal. 

Are X-rays safe?

Dental X-rays are extremely safe. We use digital X-rays because they only use a fraction of the radiation that film X-rays use. As we usually want to avoid taking X-rays on a pregnant patient, please let us know if you are pregnant or suspect that you might be.

What does oral cancer look like?

Abnormal growth or sores in the mouth are some of the warning signs of oral cancer. A normal sore is not typically a concern, but one that doesn’t heal after a week or two may be something to contact us about.
