Our skilled and compassionate dental team is proud to offer general dentistry services to patients in our community. When it comes to oral health; receiving regular checkups, cleanings, and routine restorations are incredibly important for ensuring optimal oral function and preventing destructive dental conditions like periodontal disease and dental caries or cavities. Our team offers insight into our comprehensive services and how they can benefit your health.
Many patients forego routine dental care for a number of reasons. Some patients feel that checkups and cleanings are unnecessary if they are not experiencing noticeable symptoms or discomfort. Other patients may opt out of visiting the dentist because their lives are hectic and busy. Whatever a patient’s reasons for not receiving regular care may be, it is important to know that oral health is connected to overall health and well-being.
Checkups and cleanings are essential to detecting potential problems as soon as possible. During examinations, our team takes a careful look at a patient’s teeth, gums, and structures not visible to the eye. Cleanings are important for removing harmful substances that are left behind—even after proper brushing and flossing.

In addition to prevention, our practice provides important restorative care to patients. Teeth, while strong, are susceptible to injury and disease. In fact, about 99 out of every 100 people will require some type of restoration in their lifetime. This is because teeth cannot heal on their own after being damaged by injury or decay.
Common restorations include fillings, crowns, and bridges. Fillings treat small areas of decay while crowns are a tooth-shaped prosthetic that fits over an entire tooth that has been damaged. Bridges replace missing teeth by using a custom prosthetic and anchoring it to neighboring biological teeth.
