The Benefits of General Dentistry
General dentistry is fundamental part of your dental hygiene and overall oral health:
- Prevention – General dentistry helps to prevent serious dental hygiene problems such as oral infections, cancers, and other dental complications from developing.
- Cavity Detection – Early detection of cavities and gum disease (gingivitis) improves the chances of reversing infection altogether.
- Oral Health – Research continues to indicate a link between your oral health and overall health. By getting your oral health in check, general dentistry protects you from health problems such as heart disease.
The General Dentistry services we offer include:
- Dental Crowns – A dental crown is an artificial tooth that, using CEREC technology, is a one-visit procedure that can cover imperfections in your smile or can serve as a base for dentures or other apparatus.
- Dental Fillings – We use natural-colored resin to handle any tooth decay. These fillings look just like your tooth and prevents you from suffering from any other decay in that tooth. They are also much safer than the metal fillings used in the past.
- Dental Bonding – When you have a tooth that is slightly misshapen, often our dentists in Tampa, FL choose to use dental bonding to repair it. Dental bonding is simply putty that bonds to your tooth and then is shaped to repair the tooth.
- Dental Hygiene – Your oral health is important to us, so we do a variety of services to help ensure you have a bright, clean, healthy smile. We offer regular teeth cleaning, and we also instruct you and your loved ones on proper dental hygiene and oral health.
- Dental Sealants – One of the best ways to encourage dental hygiene and good oral health is to have dental sealant put on your teeth. This sealant is like a “varnish” painted onto your teeth that gives them an extra protection against decay.
