General Dentistry Treatments & Procedures
General dentistry includes many routine procedures for maintaining the health and beauty of your smile, such as:
Dental Cleanings & Dental Exams Twice a year you should visit us for a dental cleaning and a dental exam. One of our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth to prevent tartar or plaque buildup that could lead to cavities and gum disease. Your dental exam will include an oral cancer screening using our advanced VELscope system to assess the health of your oral tissue.
Preventive Treatments To protect your teeth during the months between your twice-annual visits, we recommend these preventive treatments:
- Dental sealants are applied to the biting surface of your teeth to defend against bacteria that could otherwise thrive in that area and cause cavities.
- Fluoride varnish and other fluoride treatments coat your teeth in fluoride to strengthen them against tooth decay.
Gum Disease Treatment Early signs of gum disease call for more frequent dental cleanings at our office and vigilant care at home, including twice-a-day brushing and daily flossing.
If your gum disease progresses, we might recommend diode laser scaling and root planing. This treatment removes the pockets of bacteria beneath your gumline that are damaging your gums and the roots of your teeth.
For advanced cases of gum disease, we can perform osseous surgery and flapless regenerative procedures with Biolase Waterlase technology. Waterlase uses a laser and water instead of a drill for a more comfortable treatment experience.
Dry Mouth It might surprise you, but if you’re struggling with dry mouth, our dentists can help. We can help you troubleshoot the source of your dry mouth and often provide relief through treatment.
Athletic Mouthguards Participating in athletics without an athletic mouthguard isn’t a risk you should take with your smile. We can fit you with an athletic mouthguard with a fun, original design custom made by Galleria of Smiles. It’s sure to fit right and allow you to breathe comfortably all while protecting your teeth from harm.
