Our Core General Dentistry Services
While we offer many types of treatments, these are some of the most common that we provide:
Tooth decay is probably the #1 cause of dental health issues. At its earliest stage, we can generally remedy the decay with a filling. More severe decay may require more complex and potentially costly treatments like root canals or even tooth extractions and dental implants. Screenings and cleanings can help you avoid these.
Sometimes teeth feel and look perfectly healthy on the outside, but it’s only by seeing what’s happening on the inside that we’re able to confirm that they’re truly healthy. We do this through dental x-rays. To preserve your future health, we use special equipment that emits a fraction of the radiation of conventional equipment used by many other practices!
You may wonder why our dentists sometimes move your tongue to each side or palpate your neck during an exam. This is an oral cancer screening. By performing these regularly, we can identify unusual symptoms and recommend medical treatment before they turn into a potentially serious condition.
Gum disease doesn’t only compromise your smile, cause pain, and give you bad breath, it can cause gum recession, gum pockets, tooth loss, and jawbone loss. Left untreated, it can even lead to serious systemic health issues like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and pregnancy complications as the bacteria travel through your bloodstream. Gum disease evaluations can help us prevent these complications.
To maintain the health and function of your mouth we provide an occlusion analysis, which helps us determine if your bite is properly aligned. If your teeth aren’t straight or your arches aren’t lining up it may be an indication of bruxism (teeth grinding) or other treatable conditions. Keeping your teeth straight and stable is crucial to keeping them—and you—healthy.
