General Dentistry

At The Practice, we provide comprehensive general dentistry services to our patients. General dentistry encompasses various treatments and procedures to maintain optimal oral health and prevent dental problems. 

Our highly skilled team of dental professionals is committed to delivering personalized care to patients of all ages, ensuring their smiles remain healthy and beautiful.


What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry involves diagnosing, preventing, and treating common dental conditions affecting the teeth, gums, and surrounding structures. It focuses on maintaining the overall oral health of patients and addressing any issues that may arise. General dentists are primary dental care providers who offer a wide range of services to help patients achieve and maintain healthy smiles.


What are the Benefits of General Dentistry?

General dentistry is crucial in preserving oral health and preventing dental problems. Regular dental check-ups allow our experienced dentists to detect and treat issues early, preventing them from becoming more severe and requiring extensive treatment. 

Additionally, general dentistry services such as cleanings, sealants, and preventive care help to maintain healthy teeth and gums, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.


Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is a fundamental aspect of general dentistry that focuses on maintaining oral health and preventing dental problems before they occur. At The Practice, we emphasize the importance of preventive care and provide various services to help our patients achieve optimal oral health.

Dental Check-ups and Cleanings

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. During these visits, our dentists will thoroughly examine your oral cavity, checking for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other dental issues. 

Professional dental cleanings help remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. By attending regular check-ups and cleanings, you can stay ahead of potential problems and ensure the long-term health of your smile.


Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). These teeth have deep grooves and pits that can be challenging to clean thoroughly, making them more susceptible to decay. 

Dental sealants act as a barrier, preventing bacteria and food particles from accumulating in these areas and reducing the risk of cavities. They are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers but can also be used for adults at higher risk of tooth decay.


Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can be severe and potentially life-threatening if not detected early. As part of our comprehensive general dentistry services, we perform regular oral cancer screenings during dental check-ups. 

Our dentists can use advanced techniques and tools to identify suspicious areas or lesions in your mouth and recommend further evaluation if necessary. Early detection significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and recovery.


Pediatric Dentistry

Children have unique dental needs, and our team at The Practice is dedicated to providing gentle and compassionate care to our young patients. Pediatric dentistry focuses on the oral health of infants, children, and adolescents, ensuring that their teeth and gums develop correctly and remain healthy into adulthood.

Pediatric Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings are essential for children to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Our dental hygienists are specially trained to work with children, providing gentle cleanings and educating them about proper oral hygiene practices. These visits also offer an opportunity to monitor the development of your child’s teeth and address any concerns at an early stage.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay. In addition to fluoride found in toothpaste and drinking water, we offer fluoride treatments as part of our pediatric dentistry services. These treatments involve applying a concentrated fluoride varnish or gel to your child’s teeth, providing extra protection against cavities.

Dental Education and Habits

At The Practice, we believe in empowering children to take control of their oral health. Our pediatric dentistry services include educating children and parents about proper brushing and flossing techniques and the importance of a healthy diet in maintaining strong teeth. We strive to create a positive and educational experience for children, setting the foundation for a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits.


Toothache Treatment and Emergency Dental Care

Toothaches can be excruciating and disrupt your daily life. At The Practice, we understand the urgency of toothache treatment and offer prompt care to alleviate your discomfort.


Causes of Toothaches

Toothaches can have various causes, including tooth decay, dental abscesses, cracked or fractured teeth, gum disease, or sinus infections. Identifying the underlying cause of your toothache is crucial in determining the appropriate treatment.


Prompt Toothache Treatment

When you experience a toothache, seeking professional dental care as soon as possible is essential. Our experienced dentists will perform a thorough examination, possibly including dental X-rays, to diagnose the cause of your toothache accurately. 

Depending on the underlying issue, treatment options may include dental fillings, root canal therapy, tooth extractions, or other appropriate interventions.


Emergency Dental Care

Dental emergencies can occur anytime, causing severe pain and requiring immediate attention. Whether you have a knocked-out tooth, severe oral bleeding, a dental abscess, or any other dental emergency, our team is here to provide prompt and compassionate care. 

Contact our office immediately if you require emergency dental treatment, and we will do our best to accommodate you as soon as possible.


Clear Braces and Orthodontia

A straight, properly aligned smile enhances your appearance and promotes oral health. The Practice offers clear braces and orthodontic treatment options to help you achieve a beautifully aligned smile.


Clear Braces

Clear braces like Invisalign® are an increasingly popular alternative to traditional metal braces. They use a series of clear, removable aligners to shift your teeth into their desired positions gradually. Clear braces offer several advantages, including improved aesthetics, increased comfort, and the ability to remove the aligners for eating and oral hygiene.


Periodontal Gum Treatment

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a severe condition that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. Left untreated can lead to tooth loss and adversely affect your overall health. At The Practice, we provide comprehensive periodontal gum treatment to restore gum health and prevent further damage.


Diagnosis of Gum Disease

Our dentists will carefully examine your gums for signs of periodontal disease during regular dental check-ups. Common indicators include redness, swelling, bleeding, and gum recession. In some cases, we may recommend additional tests, such as periodontal probing or dental X-rays, to accurately evaluate the disease’s severity.


Non-Surgical Gum Treatment

In the early stages of gum disease, non-surgical treatments, such as scaling and root planing, are often effective in removing plaque and tartar buildup below the gumline. This process helps eliminate bacteria and promotes the healing of the gums. 

Our dental hygienists are trained in these procedures and will work with you to improve your gum health.


Surgical Gum Treatment

In advanced cases of gum disease where non-surgical treatments are insufficient, surgical intervention may be necessary. 

Our skilled periodontists can perform procedures such as gum grafting, pocket reduction surgery, or guided tissue regeneration to repair damaged tissues and restore the health of your gums.
