What Is General and Family Dentistry?

General and family dentistry covers a range of essential services that patients need to protect their oral health. This branch of dentistry is responsible for preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and pediatric care, among other disciplines.

Benefits of General and Family Dentistry

General and family dentistry helps to enhance and support your oral health and that of your loved ones. Its many benefits include:

  • Less tooth decay
  • Lower chance of developing periodontal disease
  • Saving natural teeth with root canals
  • Detecting early cavities and other problems with digital X-rays
  • Promoting lifelong oral health for children and teens
  • Enhancing the look of your smile
  • Restoring the proper function of your teeth

Procedures Offered:

Preventive Care

Dental scanner in use

Cleanings and oral cancer screenings are essential routine care. Dental cleanings eliminate plaque and tartar buildup, lowering a patient's chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay. Oral cancer screenings help detect abnormalities at early stages when they are most treatable. Digital X-rays provide fine detail and help dentists diagnose problems earlier for better results.

Child preventative dentistry

We treat children of all ages, from babies getting their first tooth to age 18. Pediatric dentistry provides a foundation of excellent oral care habits that will help keep your child's teeth healthy throughout their lives.

Root Canals

Dental Sealants

Today, a root canal is a routine procedure that is no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. Root canals relieve acute dental pain and can save your natural tooth from extraction.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Flouride Treatment

We offer a wide selection of cosmetic dentistry services, including teeth whitening and veneers. Teeth whitening can remove years of stains in just one office visit. Veneers can cover stained, chipped, misshapen, or slightly misaligned teeth in just two visits.

Custom Oral Appliances

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic treatment system that uses medical-grade plastic aligners to shift your teeth into the best positions gently. Invisalign is comfortable to wear, discreet, and faster than traditional braces.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry can replace damaged or missing teeth by placing fillings, crowns, implants, and bridges. Our focus is restoring the full function of your teeth and your ability to chew, talk, and smile freely.

Dental Implants

Older dental patient

Implants are the most durable and lifelike restorations for missing or damaged teeth. A dental implant consists of a tiny titanium post that bonds with the jawbone and replaces the root, a stainless steel cap or abutment, and a dental crown to replace the tooth. Implants are beautiful, long-lasting restorations.

Nitrous Oxide

For patients who may find it difficult to relax in the dentist's chair, we offer light sedation with nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is a safe medication for all ages that provides a feeling of calm and relaxation. It wears off so quickly that patients can drive home after their appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions About General and Family Dentistry

How often should I see the dentist?
It would be best if you visited the dentist for a cleaning and comprehensive oral exam twice a year. If you have existing gum disease, you may need to come into the office more frequently.
What happens if I skip dental visits?
Regular maintenance is a must for a beautiful, healthy smile. Skipping appointments makes you more likely to develop problems like cavities and gum disease. If you wait until you have pain or break a tooth to see the dentist, the time and cost it takes to restore your smile will increase.
Is nitrous oxide safe?
Nitrous oxide has been well-studied in all age groups. Pregnant women, people with chronic respiratory disorders, and people with nasal congestion should talk to their doctor before getting nitrous oxide.
How long does it take to place dental implants?
The implant process takes several months, from the extraction of the existing teeth to the placement of the final crowns. However, along with our specialist partners, we offer “Teeth in a Day” full-arch implant-supported bridges in just one day.
Why should my child see the dentist so early?
Examining babies' first teeth can allow your dentist to track their development from a very young age. Children who start seeing the dentist in infancy become comfortable in the office, reducing dental anxiety and its consequences later in life.
