At Dr Be Smiles, you will most likely receive routine professional cleanings, thorough oral exams, cancer screenings, and X-rays at your general dentist's office. Biannual visits allow our dentist to closely monitor your oral health and look for potential problems early on. Conditions like gum disease and tooth decay can worsen if left untreated. Patients may sometimes need restorative treatments to repair damage to their teeth or gums. However, many minor problems can be caught early and treated quickly before they develop into more severe concerns. Routine cleanings and exams are the keys to keeping your smile healthy for years. These preventive treatments can also reduce your risk for periodontal disease and cavities. During your visit, your dentist will clean your teeth of plaque and debris built up on and between your teeth. They will also check for signs of decay, disease, and other abnormalities.

Dental Exams and Cleanings

Regular dental exams and cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health. The dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for signs of decay, disease, or other issues during a dental exam. Dental cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gum line to prevent cavities and gum disease.

Dental X-rays detect tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues that may not be visible during a visual exam. They can also help dentists plan and carry out treatments, such as fillings, crowns, and root canals.

Root Canals

Root canals are performed to treat a tooth that has become infected or inflamed deep inside the tooth. During the procedure, the dentist will remove the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth and replace it with a filling.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are performed to remove damaged or decayed teeth that cannot be repaired with a filling or crown. They are also performed to remove impacted wisdom teeth or to make room for orthodontic treatment.

The Benefits of General Dentistry

Your general dentist can assess the health of your gums and treat any issues found during a checkup and cleaning. It can be easy to ignore warning signs like bleeding gums or bad breath, but ignoring them can lead to serious health issues, including heart disease and diabetes. Even if you’ve kept up with your brushing and flossing routine, your dentist can spot any problems with your teeth that you may miss at home. Routine dental visits can also help detect oral cancer early so that you can receive treatment as soon as possible to increase your chances of survival.

General dentistry is focused on helping you maintain good oral health and prevent dental problems. By visiting our dentist regularly and following a good oral hygiene routine, you can help ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy for years.
