There are a lot of reasons it's important to see a general dentist, not just for teeth. A lot of diseases that are in the mouth can actually contribute to heart disease, and there are a lot of other physiological problems that can start from the bacteria in the mouth. Seeing a general dentist on a regular basis can actually help prevent some of these systemic diseases that can be caused from not taking care of your mouth on a regular basis. We've got hygienists that do cleanings, which are very important, and then any general work that we need to do as far as crowns or fillings or root canals even, sometimes extractions are necessary, all to keep you healthy.
Our general dental care will:
- Help you avoid cavities and gum disease
- Keep your smile looking and feeling terrific
- Relieve uncomfortable problems like dry mouth and halitosis (bad breath)
- Protect your teeth from athletic injuries and other damage
- Improve your overall health as well as your dental health
