Your Smile Will Look & Feel Better With General Dental Care

You’ll find all the general dental care you need at Sabal Dental, including:

  • Dental Exams – We use the latest technology to identify dental issues that need to be addressed, including digital X-rays and an intraoral camera. Our dentists sometimes wear telescopic loupes, powerful glasses with a magnifier, for a close-up look at the condition of your mouth.
  • Dental Cleanings – We get your teeth completely clean, including areas that are often difficult to reach at home, like the back teeth and the area at your gumline.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – A licensed periodontist can eliminate gum disease with a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing treatment. We can also treat more advanced cases of gum disease and gum recession.
  • Dry Mouth And Halitosis Treatments – We’ll help you identify the root causes of these unpleasant conditions and recommend therapeutic mouth rinses that can eliminate your symptoms.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – Our dentists can fit you for a custom mouthguard that will protect teeth from damage during athletic activities. We can also provide mouthguards to treat sleep apnea and TMJ disorders.
  • Preventive Services – Keep your smile free of cavities with applications of fluoride, which strengthens your tooth enamel, and dental sealants, which keep bacteria out of the tiny grooves on the chewing surfaces of teeth.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What does general dentistry include?

General dentistry includes several services that are designed to keep your smile in great shape. These services include dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, preventive services like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, athletic mouthguards to protect your teeth during sports, and even treatment for halitosis (bad breath) and dry mouth.

Can I prevent cavities?

Brushing with a toothpaste that contains fluoride at least two times a day is essential in preventing cavities, as is daily flossing. Limiting the amount of sugary or highly acidic foods in your diet is also helpful. If you’re unable to brush after meals, rinsing out your mouth with water is a good way to help wash away the food debris and bacteria that cause cavities. Ask your dental team about fluoride and sealants, two treatments that can make your teeth less cavity-prone.

Can specialists practice general dentistry?

While the answer is yes, in actuality specialists do not usually practice general dentistry; they work strictly in their field of expertise. That’s why it’s better to go to a general dentist for most of your routine oral care, including restorative and cosmetic dentistry. A general dentist sees all sorts of different cases every day and is well equipped to handle a variety of dental situations.
