Prevention is the most important aspect of maintaining good oral health. Proper oral care starts at home with twice daily brushing and flossing. However, it is also important to come to our office twice a year for an oral health examination and professional cleaning. This will ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy for years to come.
General Dentistry Procedures
General dentistry is more than examinations and teeth cleanings. It includes a variety of procedures that are required for maintaining optimal oral health, including:
Tooth colored fillings
Our primary goal as general dentists is to provide preventative care for you and your family, but with our thorough training and experience in general dentistry, we can treat any oral health problem that you may encounter. Additionally, our dentists have been trained in the art of cosmetic dentistry, giving them the ability to provide you with dental restorations which are both functional and aesthetically beautiful.
The Importance of General Dentistry
General dentistry is important for maintaining a healthy, natural smile. Several studies suggest that oral health is directly related to overall systemic health as well. Infections in your mouth, including cavities and decay, have been linked to medical issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and systemic infections.
Making sure you visit our office twice a year for examinations allows us to detect these issues before they become a larger problem. Furthermore, only a professional cleaning from our general dentists can ensure your teeth are as healthy, white, and beautiful as possible.
