General dentistry is an integral component of dental care that emphasizes overall oral wellness by taking a holistic approach to dental hygiene for your teeth, gums, jawbone and more.

This field offers a vast array of services, from regular check-ups and cleanings, fillings, extractions and preventive care to fillings and extractions. At each check-up visit our expert dentists examine your teeth and gums using X-rays as necessary, prior to performing thorough cleaning to eliminate plaque buildup or tartar buildup from building up in plaque forms or tartar deposits on gum tissue or teeth surfaces – offering guidance for maintaining good oral hygiene practices to avoid issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

General dentistry goes far beyond routine care, offering diagnosis and treatment of oral health conditions such as cavities, gum disease and oral cancer. General dentistry serves as the cornerstone for maintaining optimal oral health as it anticipates potential issues that might surface down the road.

Dental Check Up & Clean

A dental check up and clean is more than just looking for cavities and brushing the teeth. We check many aspects of your oral health, such as your gums, tongue, palate, bite, lips, and any signs of disease or abnormality on the soft or hard tissues. The clean also removes more than just the plaque on your teeth. It goes under and over the gums to get rid of hard calculus and reduce the amount of bacteria.

When it comes to your oral health, prevention is key. It is much better to keep your oral hygiene than to have an infection that needs to be treated.

Regular dental check ups help us to know your mouth and health history better, so we can spot any problems early and fix them more easily and cheaply. During these visits, we use clinical and diagnostic imaging to find and treat potential problems before they get worse. If you ignore dental problems, they will not go away by themselves, but they will grow and become more serious. For example, by removing calculus at your regular check up and clean appointments, you can prevent diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis, and by fixing decay early you can save your tooth from needing a root canal or extraction.
