Our Selection of General Care Procedures
The best way to prevent decay, infection, and other dental issues is to brush and floss regularly and stay up to date on your general dental care. We’ll help you keep a beautiful smile with the following general services. Our general dentistry services include:
Biannual Cleanings (ADA-recommended)
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.
Periodontal Gum Therapy (Support Oral Systemic Health)
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.
Oral Cancer Screenings
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.
