General Treatment

The purpose of general dentistry is to preserve the health, functionality and appearance of patients’ natural teeth for as long as possible.

Maintaining optimal oral health and hygiene is not only critical to keep your smile looking clean, healthy and luminous, but also essential to ensuring continued overall health. In fact, numerous medical research studies have found strong correlations between common oral problems, such as infections, and serious health conditions like cardiovascular disease.

Therefore, the importance of keeping up your oral health with routine general dentistry truly cannot be overstated.

Why It’s Important to Visit Us at Least Twice a Year

Many patients have a tendency to only visit the dentist when pain arises or something feels wrong, which unfortunately means they miss out on preventative treatments that would not only save them time and discomfort down the road, but significant amounts of money as well.

That’s why we, and dentists nationwide, highly recommend you visit us at least twice a year for a routine cleaning and examination to ensure any oral health problems are addressed immediately before they have the potential to progress into more painful, extensive and costly issues in the future.

What to Expect During Your Biannual Cleaning and Exam

When you come into our welcoming office for a routine dental checkup, you can expect to receive:

  • A thorough oral examination to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy.
  • An oral cancer screening to make sure any potential signs of cancer are detected early on.
  • A gentle, professional dental cleaning to remove buildups of plaque and tarter and ensure your teeth look and feel great.
