What is General Dentistry?

We understand each patient is unique, and we work hard to provide every patient with a positive experience in our office. From the moment you arrive, you will be welcomed and made comfortable. We believe that a calm, comforting environment is essential to feel at ease in our office. Not everyone looks forward to a visit to the dentist’s office, and we want to change that!

What it entails?

Regular dental appointments are the base for your teeth and gums to remain healthy. Your twice-a-year visit allows us to intervene in any issues that may be developing before they become a more serious situation, requiring additional treatment.

Your oral health is our specialty, but the Act of your dental visits does not stop there. Good oral health is critical to much more than your teeth and gums. Poor oral health can cause serious health complications such as cardiovascular disease, increased risk for stroke, higher risk for diabetes, more difficulty controlling diabetes, and even respiratory issues. That’s enough to stop anyone from smiling!

Through education, we empower our patients by presenting all the various treatment therapies that are suited to their specific dental needs. Together we determine the best solutions for you. Expect the same level of exceptional care in our office for you and your family, that we provide for our own family.

Early detection of dental problems is the best way to avoid gum disease and loss of natural teeth. You probably only see your primary care provider only when you are experiencing a health issue producing symptoms that have become worrisome. When you see your General Dentist twice a year, you are receiving the best in preventative care. It’s much easier to resolve a problem that is still so small that there are not yet noticeable symptoms. Keep your teeth and gums in tiptop shape with regular dental appointments. Your smile will thank you!

Services we offer

Now that you know the importance of General Dentist appointments, let’s talk about what services we provide.

Preventative Dentistry

This group of services focuses on prevention of gum disease and infection. Regular cleaning by a dental professional removes the plaque that builds up no matter how diligently you brush and floss your teeth at home. This plaque is the beginning of gum disease and many other dental problems, don’t let it affect your oral health.

Restorative Dentistry

One of the most common restorative dental needs is the removal of decay and filling of a dental cavity with a composite filling. On the occasion that the decay is extensive, a porcelain crown is a great option to save the natural tooth. If the tooth is not salvageable, a dental implant may be used to replace the natural tooth without disturbing the surrounding teeth. We also diagnose and treat periodontal disease (aka gum disease) in its various stages to stop further damage to the gums and teeth from happening.

Cosmetic Dentistry

This covers your aesthetic dental concerns to provide you with the smile of your dreams. Nothing improves self esteem like being confident in flashing your smile, knowing it’s going to dazzle. To achieve your smile goals we offer teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and bonding.

Overall Health issues

General Dentists can provide relief for mild to moderate sleep apnea, through the use of custom made oral appliances. We have the special training and expertise to determine the cause of the sleep apnea and assess if an oral appliance is appropriate for you. Most patients who would benefit, use a mandibular advancement device (aka MAD). The MAD works by repositioning the lower jaw, bringing it forward. This repositioning keeps the airway passages open, relieving the obstruction causing the sleep apnea. It can be a viable alternative for those who do not want to use a CPAP machine. If you have ever had sleep issues, you know how important it is to get them under control. Let us help you sleep better.

That’s not all

We can also help with the painful condition Temporomandibular Joint disorder (aka TMJ). TMJ refers to the joints found on either side of your head. These joints connect your jaw to your skull and are responsible for the movements involved in opening and closing your mouth, chewing, and speaking. With all of these complex movements, it’s easy to see how misalignment of these joints can cause symptoms like tenderness around the jaw, popping or clicking sounds, pain when the mouth is opened widely, and headaches or earaches. With proper diagnosis regarding the cause of the TMJ, we can offer relief through various oral appliances.

Whether you are in need of a routine appointment for cleaning and prevention or you are having symptoms that need attention before they worsen, call us at (203)-514-2700. We are here to help and happy to answer any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!
