OUR GENERAL DENTIST SERVICES
Do you have a tooth ache? Do your teeth bother you when they get too cold, or too hot? Do you wake up in the morning with headaches or jaw aches? As general dentists, we can provide solutions to all of these problems.
Our expertise in general dentistry makes us qualified to serve as the primary dental care provider for you and every member of your family. This means you don’t have to deal with the hassle of juggling different appointments with different specialists all over town.
We typically deal with many similar problems day in and day out. Here are just a few examples of the ways that we help you and other patients.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS
A root canal will literally save your tooth when nothing else can. The procedure has been somewhat villainized in popular culture, but it’s really nothing to fear. You’ll need a root canal if you’ve got an infection in the pulp chamber in the center of your tooth.
Cavities that are left to their own devices simply continue to grow. That’s why we clean them out thoroughly and seal them up so that the bacteria that’s literally trying to eat your tooth alive doesn’t have anything else to work with.
Though there have been many advances in dental science which offer up more options than ever before, dentures are still an outstanding option for some patients who have lost teeth.
BAD BREATH TREATMENT
There is certainly nothing more embarrassing than bad breath—and it can happen to you, even if you have outstanding oral hygiene. Stop putting your hand in front of your mouth every time you speak. Let us help you with safe, effective treatments that will restore your confidence and peace of mind.
PREGNANCY AND GINGIVITIS
Your body undergoes a lot of hormonal changes when you’re expecting—and some of those changes can put you at risk for gingivitis, even if you’ve never struggled with gum disease before. So if you’re pregnant, please consider putting us on your list of health care providers right away. Your OB/GYN isn’t the only one you need to see.
If you grind your teeth at night you’ve got a serious problem. While nobody likes hearing that they need to wear a night guard, these devices may be the only way to save your teeth in the long run.
