General Dentistry FAQs for Informed Dental Decisions

Understanding the Role of General Dentistry in Oral Health

General dentistry is important because it helps to maintain good oral health. It includes routine checkups, cleanings, and other preventative measures to catch any potential issues before they become more serious.

Alleviating Discomfort with TMJ Therapy

TMJ therapy is a treatment option for those suffering from Temporal Mandibular Joint disorders. The treatment can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders.

Advantages of Digital X-Rays in Modern Dentistry

Digital x-rays and imaging provide a more accurate and detailed view of the teeth and mouth. This can help detect any potential issues earlier, and can also reduce the amount of radiation exposure compared to traditional x-rays.

Benefits of Laser Assisted Gum Treatment

Laser assisted gum treatment is a minimally invasive option for treating gum disease. It uses a laser to remove bacteria and promote healing, without the need for traditional surgery.

Exploring Complex Surgical Dentistry Options

Complex surgical dentistry is a type of dental surgery that may be needed for more advanced cases. This can include procedures such as tooth extractions, gum grafts, and bone grafts.

Benefits of Regular Checkups

Regular examinations and teeth cleanings are vital to maintaining your oral health. Our evaluations are thorough and include not only oral cancer screenings, but TMJ assessments as well. We use digital imaging to look for any signs of infection or decay in your teeth and jawbone. Many medical conditions show their first symptoms in the mouth, so routine dentist visits matter for your overall health. 

Professional teeth cleanings help remove buildup that requires specific tools to eliminate, and they also help reduce the risk of gum disease. When you visit us, we can offer new tips for brushing and flossing.
