General Dentistry

General dentistry is the cornerstone of oral healthcare, offering a wide range of services to promote and maintain your dental well-being. At Smile Solutions Dental, our dedicated team of general dentists is committed to delivering the highest quality care to meet your dental needs. In this guide, we will explore what general dentistry is and how it can benefit your overall oral health.

Dental Examinations : Regular dental check-ups are essential for assessing your oral health. During these exams, the dentist examines your teeth and gums, checks for signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other dental issues. Early detection can prevent more extensive problems.

Dental Cleanings : Professional dental cleanings involve the removal of plaque and tartar from your teeth. This process helps prevent cavities and gum disease, leaving your teeth clean, smooth, and free of harmful buildup.

Dental Fillings : Dental fillings are used to repair cavities. The dentist removes the decayed part of the tooth and fills the space with materials such as amalgam or composite resin. Fillings restore the tooth’s structure and prevent further decay.

Dental Crowns : Dental crowns are custom-made caps that cover a damaged or weakened tooth. They enhance the tooth’s strength, size, and appearance, ensuring its long-term functionality.

Dental Bridges : Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth anchored by neighboring natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges restore your smile’s appearance and functionality while preventing surrounding teeth from shifting.

Root Canal Therapy : Root canal treatment is performed when the dental pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or inflamed. During the procedure, the infected pulp is removed, the tooth’s interior is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed, saving the tooth from extraction and relieving pain.

Dental Extractions : Dental extractions involve the removal of a tooth, typically due to severe decay, trauma, or overcrowding.

Dental Bonding : Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses tooth-colored resin to repair chipped or discolored teeth. It can also close gaps and reshape teeth, enhancing their appearance.

Dental Sealants : Dental sealants are thin coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth. They act as a barrier against food and bacteria, reducing the risk of cavities, especially in children.
