See Why General Dentistry Is Important
General dentistry is really important not only for patients that have come in in preventing tooth decay, gum issues, and gum problems to gingivitis, which is an inflammation of the gums due to poor oral habits of not brushing their teeth as well or flossing as well. We can also get into gingivitis progressing to what’s called periodontal disease, which, periodontal diseases, you have a loss of attachment of the tooth to the gum and the tooth to the bone.
Again, coming in periodically, usually every six months, we check for all of that when you come in for your visits. Measuring the spaces in between your tooth and gum to make sure that you’re properly brushing your teeth and caring for your teeth at home.
So here, our objective here in the office here is to get your mouth back to optimum health, whether it be with any restorative treatment with your teeth or your gums. We treat that, both teeth and gums. Whether it be problems with your joint, with your muscles, with your bite, straightening your teeth, we do that all here in trying to give you back oral health as much we can to keep your mouth healthy as well as your body healthy.
