The practice of general dentistry offers a wide range of dental services such as diagnoses, treatments, and the management of overall oral health including preventative maintenance, dental cleanings, x-rays, dental exams, fillings, crowns & bridges, root canals, and gum care. The goal is to help you take care of and preserve your natural teeth so you can feel great about your smile throughout life.
Dental cleanings play an important role in your oral health. While your at-home dental cleaning regimen is important, having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year will keep your natural teeth extra healthy.
A professional dental cleaning adds an additional layer of caring for your teeth and overall health. As diligent as you are about caring for your own teeth, your dentist has special tools that provide a thorough cleaning, which is helpful for the prevention of cavities and gum disease.
Hearing the term root canal often conjures up feelings of dread. Perhaps you’ve heard that root canal therapy is extremely invasive and painful. However, root canal therapy is much like any other dental procedure and serves the purpose of preserving your teeth and preventing issues from worsening.
Root canal therapy is when the interior of a tooth is treated. Inside of each tooth is a pulp chamber that lies beneath the hard-layered middle section of the tooth referred to as the dentin. The pulp chamber (or root canal) houses connective tissue, blood vessels, cells, and nerves are crucial to teeth development.
Dental implants are an important consideration if you have missing teeth. Having healthy teeth should always be your goal along with keeping your own permanent teeth for a lifetime. However, if you do experience the loss of a tooth, dental implants are a great alternative. When you are missing teeth, not only does it affect your personal confidence, it can also compromise the health of your entire mouth. An empty space where a tooth once was will cause the jawbone to deteriorate and your existing teeth will start to shift, which can result in a misaligned bite. Dental implants look, function and feel like your natural teeth and are perhaps the best alternative for tooth replacement.
