Enjoy Your Best Smile With Our General Dental Services

Our practice uses advanced technology like digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to make your care comfortable, efficient, and precise. Also, because general dentistry is so important to your oral health, we offer a full range of services that fall into that category. They include:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – We recommend you visit every six months for a routine checkup. We’ll start with a complete dental exam, including a head and neck exam and a check for oral cancer. Then our hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth. You’ll leave our office with a fresh-from-the-dentist feeling.
  • Preventive Treatments – During your checkup, we may recommend one or more preventive treatments. Fluoride treatments and varnishes help to strengthen your tooth enamel and prevent cavities. Tooth sealants form a protective barrier against decay-causing bacteria that can wreak havoc on your teeth.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Dr. McGary, our in-house periodontist, provides a wide assortment of treatments to get your gums back into shape, including scaling and root planing, open flap debridement, Arestin antibiotic treatment, gum grafts, and osteo surgery. Most general dentists do not provide such extensive gum care.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Our team will seek out the cause of your chronic dry mouth so we can recommend the best treatment for your situation. Specialty products and/or lifestyle changes will help reduce dry mouth symptoms so your mouth feels better.
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – We’ll treat the cause of halitosis, either with one of our gum disease therapies or using specialty products, so you can avoid embarrassing social interactions.
  • Custom Mouthguards – We can make a variety of professional mouthguards for different applications, including bruxism (teeth grinding), TMJ treatment, and protection during sports. Digital impressions ensure a snug, comfortable fit and superior protection over store-bought mouthguards.
  • Family Dentistry – We recommend you bring your little one in to see Dr. Jones either by age 1 or six months after their first tooth appears. She has extensive experience treating children, so they’ll be in good hands. As a bonus, we can schedule your entire family at one time with one extended appointment.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Foods that are good for your body also tend to be good for your teeth. This includes fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and calcium-rich foods like cheese. With their high water and fiber content, some fruits and veggies work almost like a toothbrush to clean plaque from teeth. Nuts are a great snack, as they contain minerals that help strengthen tooth enamel and make it more resistant to cavities.

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.

Do dental checkups include oral cancer screenings?

Yes. Dental checkups typically involve a thorough cleaning, comprehensive exam, and dental X-rays to look for signs of problems like tooth decay or gum disease; an oral cancer screening; and time with your dentist to talk about any current or potential oral health issues that need to be addressed.
