General dental services can stop future dental problems in their tracks. At regular office visits, our dental hygienists provide dental cleanings to patients that remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums.
Routine appointments help stop the development of common oral health issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. These oral health problems are highly damaging and, over time, may lead to gum recession and tooth loss.
Our general dental treatments are a part of preventative dentistry. Sports mouthguards protect teeth against injuries and loss, while emergency dentistry provides prompt treatment against sudden oral health issues. Tooth extractions prevent the spread of infection and tooth damage.

Preventative, general dental solutions help patients keep their oral health in check. We invite you to learn more about each of our general oral health services here:
If you or your child play contact sports, you need to wear a sports mouthguard. Our custom-made sports mouthguards protect teeth and braces from injuries. With a properly fitting mouthguard, patients can eliminate the need for cosmetic and restorative treatment to repair or replace permanent teeth.
Compared to store-bought mouthguards, our custom-made sports mouthguards can make it easier for athletes to drink, speak, and play without distractions.
If you have a dental emergency, please contact our office for prompt care. We can treat patients who are experiencing toothaches, have just knocked out a permanent tooth, or have a broken dental restoration. Our dentists ensure that patients can receive prompt care to treat sudden changes in their oral health.
As a family dentist office, we provide dental care for every member of your family. Parents can bring their children to regular dental visits so they can learn how to care for their teeth and gums at home. Our dentists also provide treatment for aging smiles.
For patients with infected or impacted teeth, we will recommend tooth extraction treatment. Removing problem teeth stops the spread of decay and also protects adjacent teeth from damage. If needed, we can also provide dental implants to restore permanent teeth after they are removed.
General Dental FAQs
Below, we answer popular questions that patients have about general dental treatment:
Why should I visit the dentist regularly?
We recommend that patients visit the dentist twice a year, or every six months. Routine dental visits are important because they allow our dentists to keep track of and maintain your oral health. Your oral health is linked to your overall health.
Some dental problems like gum disease and missing teeth impact your physical health. Both at-home oral hygiene and professional dental care may prevent complex oral health and overall health problems.
When should I bring my child to their first dental visit?
Bring your child to our office for an appointment after their first baby tooth emerges. Typically, their first tooth will erupt before they are 12 months old.
Are tooth extractions painful?
No, we make sure that every treatment we offer is comfortable for our patients, extractions included. For extractions, we will use local anesthesia and dental sedation as needed. Many patients will find that they no longer have dental pain after their extraction treatment. Infected and impacted teeth can cause pain that we alleviate with tooth removal.
