  • Dental Sealants – You can greatly reduce your risk of cavities by applying these special sealants to your teeth.
  • Fluoride Treatment – Getting a fluoride treatment makes your teeth stronger and better at resisting tooth decay.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – For anyone who plays sports, our custom-made mouthguards provide comfort and protection that can’t be matched with store-bought products.
  • Halitosis Treatment – If you have chronic bad breath, let us help you find the source of your trouble and treat it.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Dry mouth can be the cause or the consequence of other oral health issues. We have solutions, such as a prescription mouth rinse.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, which is one of the reasons treating it early is so important to us.

Going to the dentist causes anxiety for millions of people across the United States. If you are one of them, we want to make your visits with us as stress-free as possible, whether you are getting a dental cleaning or restorative care.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What does general dentistry include?

General dental services regularly performed will help you maintain a gorgeous smile and healthy mouth. There are several types of dental care that fall under general dentistry, including dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, fluoride treatments, tooth sealants, custom athletic mouthguards, dry mouth treatment, and halitosis (bad breath) treatment.

Who needs dental sealants?

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating. We use them on back teeth, which have grooves on the chewing surface where bacteria tends to accumulate. This makes these teeth especially prone to cavities. We often recommend applying sealants to a child’s premolars and permanent molars as soon as they come in – around ages 6 and 12, respectively. According to the CDC, school-age children without sealants have nearly three times more cavities than children with them. Cavity-prone adults may benefit from sealants too.

Can specialists practice general dentistry?

In theory, a dental specialist could practice general dentistry. However, most specialists stay within their chosen field of specialty. A general dentist is used to seeing and treating a wide variety of dental problems every day. That’s why you’ll get better care for routine problems from a general dentist than from a specialist.
