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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
