Keep Your Teeth Clean, Healthy & Smiling With Our General Dentistry Services

Prevent Dental Problems With Regular Check-Ups

General Dentistry is your dental “primary care”.

Your primary care includes the diagnosis, treatment and management of your overall oral health care. It encompasses gum care, fillings, crowns and preventative education.

IT MAY BE TEMPTING TO SKIP A DENTAL checkup now and then. But remember that regular checkups and professional cleanings can actually save you time and money. Even more importantly, they can save your teeth and your health.

Regular Scheduled Dental Visits

Your routine oral hygiene visits are imperative! They are the key factor in eliminating disease-causing bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria in the mouth builds to form plaque, a colorless film that sticks to teeth at the gum line. If plaque isn’t removed it can harden and lead to gingivitis or gum disease. Daily brushing and flossing helps keep plaque build-up to a minimum. Your professional dental cleaning will remove dental tartar or calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. That’s why your hygiene visits play such an important role in keeping your smile healthy.

During your visit, the dental hygienist will do the following:

  • Thoroughly clean your teeth
  • Remove surface stains and tartar
  • Check for signs of decay or gum disease
  • Do an oral cancer screening

Your hygienist will also discuss your home dental care, answer questions and provide suggestions on how to improve your habits to promote optimal oral health. Your Dentist will do a periodic exam and X-rays may be performed to identify any problems.
