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.

A Healthy Smile Begins Here
We recommend that our patients visit Michael S. Roessler DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. However, care from a general dentist will cover much more than just looking over your teeth and giving them a quick cleaning.
Your checkup will include a periodontal exam, occlusion (bite) exam, TMJ exam, and oral cancer screening. We’ll also take a full set of X-rays to look for underlying problems. We’ll then recommend any treatments that are needed to either maintain or restore your oral health.
If we see signs of gum infection, we’ll recommend gum disease treatment. We can deep clean around and below your gumline to remove disease-causing bacteria and allow your gums to heal.
We can also have custom mouthguards and night guards made to protect your teeth against injury. Our athletic mouthguards will help athletes and active patients avoid dental damage that could put you on the sidelines. If we see signs of bruxism (teeth grinding), a professionally made night guard will help eliminate it.
Dr. Roessler can provide help for dry mouth as well. There are many potential causes for a chronic dry mouth, including certain medications. We can recommend specialty products like Biotene to help or, in severe cases, give you fluoride trays to take home that will help you avoid tooth decay.
For chronic halitosis (bad breath), we offer a lineup of mouthwashes and toothpastes that contain zinc. Our staff will be happy to advise you on the appropriate products for your situation.
