A general dentist is your primary care dental provider. This dentist diagnoses, treats, and manages your overall oral health care needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.
Oral Hygiene & Gum Disease
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems, most commonly, dental cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath. Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
Toothaches & Emergencies
See your dentist as soon as possible if you have a toothache that lasts longer than 1 or 2 days, your toothache is severe, you have a fever, earache, or pain upon opening your mouth wide. Identification and treatment of infections is important to prevent its spread to other parts of the face, skull, and possibly even to the bloodstream.
Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. Most think of teeth whitening or veneers when cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, but a cosmetic dentist can provide much more. Procedures include: veneeers, implants, bonding, bridges, contouring & shaping, and dentures & crowns.

An implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.
