What Services Does a General Dentistry Practice Offer?
One of the most important aspects of a general dentist is that they can provide patients with all kinds of different dental services, including the following:
Teeth Cleaning and Dental Care
Preventative dental care is a critical part of your oral health and consists of teeth cleanings, examinations, x-rays, and other diagnostic tests, fluoride treatment, dental sealants, and periodontal maintenance for the prevention and care of gum disease.
A general dentist can repair any damage to your smile with tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, dental bridges, and root canal therapy. These restorative procedures can improve health and eliminate pain.
Dental implant restoration falls under the umbrella of prosthodontics, and so do dentures. We offer partial, complete, immediate, and implant-retained dentures to fit a wider range of patient needs.
General dentists can perform several minor oral surgeries, including extractions, soft tissue procedures, and dental implant placement. These surgeries are relatively quick and simple, and can still drastically improve your dental health.
Dental Health Services
Whether you need nutritional counseling, sports mouth guards, night guards for clenching and grinding, oral appliances for treating sleep apnea, or TMJ therapies, your general dentist, Dr. Rashmi Bhatnagar can help.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is a painful condition that can cause your gums to swell, bleed, and retreat from your teeth. We can offer minor gum disease treatment or gum disease deep-cleaning to stop this disease at the source.
Oral Cancer Screenings
It is very difficult to see the warning signs of oral cancer without a professional’s help. At our office, we can perform quick, effective oral cancer screenings that can help keep you safe and cancer-free.
Cosmetic dentistry gives you the power to choose the appearance of your smile. With our teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, cosmetic restorations, and Invisalign orthodontic services, your ideal smile is within reach.
Why Is General Dentistry So Important?
Two of the most important aspects of general dentistry are teeth cleanings and regular checkups. Even if you brush and floss regularly, professional teeth cleanings can offer a deeper, more thorough clean than you are able to get at home. This will help you prevent:
- Gum disease.
- Tooth infection.
- Tooth loss.
Regular checkups are important for a similar reason. Even if you are not experiencing any pain or problems with your teeth, regular checkups can catch small problems and warning signs before they have time to develop into anything more serious.
