What Is General Dentistry?
The main aim of our general dentistry service is to keep all our patients in excellent oral health. To accomplish this, we offer general dentistry services at our dental office that include:
- Mouth exams to checking for decay
- Screenings for oral cancer
- Treatments for issues identified in the exams.
We provide restorative procedures such as root canals, dentures, onlays, and cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, smile makeovers, etc. Besides this, we also extend preventative services such as fluoride treatments, sealants, and tooth extractions. Specialized orthodontic treatments such as braces, Invisalign, and mouth guards are also available at our office.
What Are Some Basic General Dentistry Services?
- Comprehensive Examination
We conduct comprehensive examinations to detect any warning signs of decay or gum disease. Diagnosing problems in the early stages will enable our dentist, Dr. Alan McCaffrey, to provide quick treatment before the oral condition deteriorates and causes discomfort.
Fluorides are part of preventative dentistry that is placed on the teeth to strengthen them. They help fight natural erosion and keep teeth strong enough to fight off bacteria.
An onlay is a restorative material that helps repair a partially decayed or damaged tooth. It involves placing a piece of material, often porcelain or metal composite, over the surface of an injured tooth to restore its natural appearance, structure, and function. Onlays are mainly used for the molar teeth and can be described as a treatment that’s like a dental filling and a crown.
Root canals are a restorative procedure that helps save a tooth from extraction. Once reputed to be painful, root canals are now more painless and comfortable through modern techniques and anesthetics. A crown or filling will complete the restoration.
Tooth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that helps to brighten your teeth by removing stains and discoloration. It involves chemical agents that bleach stain deposits in the tooth’s dentin layer.
A mouthguard is an appliance worn over the teeth and is designed to protect them from trauma and injuries. It safeguards your teeth by working as a barrier between your upper and lower teeth.
