Give Your Smile the Care It Needs to Shine

General dentistry treatments are essential to your oral health. This routine care can make the difference between showing off your smile with pride and hiding it behind your hand out of embarrassment. Our general dental care includes:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – We use leading-edge technology like digital X-rays, a 3-D cone beam CT scanner, and ultrasonic scalers to help detect small problems and clean your teeth comfortably and efficiently. Your exam also includes an oral cancer screening.
  • Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment – A deep cleaning with an ultrasonic scaler will remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and beneath your gumline. We’ll also smooth your tooth roots to help prevent bacteria from collecting there.
  • Custom Mouthguards – You can get several types of mouthguards, including athletic mouthguards, sleep apnea appliances, orthodontic retainers, and night guards to alleviate tension on your TMJs and prevent teeth grinding.
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath) and Dry Mouth Treatment – Our team will offer tips and make recommendations for specialty products to help you manage these chronic conditions.

Common Questions About General Dentistry
What is general dentistry?

General dentistry includes several beneficial services that will help you maintain a beautiful smile and healthy mouth. These services include dental cleanings, dental exams, gum disease treatment, and custom-fit mouthguards. General dentistry forms the cornerstone of good oral health, so we recommend you visit us routinely for your preventive dental care.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Food healthy for your teeth includes those high in calcium and phosphorus, such as dairy products, leafy greens, and almonds. High-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables can help clean teeth and stimulate saliva production to help neutralize acids in the mouth. Crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples and carrots can help scrape away plaque and massage gums. Finally, drinking plenty of water can help rinse away food particles and acids that can cause tooth decay.

Is chewing gum bad for teeth?

Chewing sugar-free gum can actually be good for your teeth! It stimulates saliva flow, which helps neutralize harmful acids and wash away food particles. Remember, though, gum with sugar can contribute to tooth decay. To protect your oral health, opt for sugar-free gum. Look for one sweetened with xylitol, a natural sugar substitute that can help prevent cavities. Gum should never replace brushing and flossing, but it can be a helpful addition to your oral hygiene routine.
