Preserve Your Smile With General Dental Care
We are more than capable of providing restorative care for patients with decayed, broken, and missing teeth. However, we would much prefer to keep your teeth intact and looking good. This is why you should take advantage of these services:
- Dental Cleanings and Exams – Professional cleanings take away plaque and tartar, while our thorough exams are how we detect problems early.
- Gum Disease Treatment – We offer nonsurgical treatments including scaling and root planing and LANAP, a laser treatment to remove infected periodontal tissue.
- Mouthguards – We can design custom-made mouthguards to provide protection while playing sports or to prevent damage due to teeth grinding.
During your checkups, you also can receive fluoride treatments and dental sealants to fight cavities. We’ll use our cavity detectors to spot problems before you can see them. Our doctors are also happy to help with lingering dry mouth and halitosis (bad breath).
