As a General Dentist, We Can Help with a Wide Array of Dental Problems
Posted on 10/25/2018 by Downtown Dental Care Office
As a general dentist, there are many different dental issues we can assist you with. We're here to provide your first line of oral health, doing everything from cleanings to preparing you for more advanced oral surgeries and other procedures.
We can also diagnose a number of different problems, not all of which begin in the mouth. Here are a few of the many different things we can do for you.
We Do Thorough Exams
Each time you come in to see us, we will do a thorough exam of your mouth. We look for cavities and signs of gingivitis or gum disease, of course, but we also look for other issues such as injuries, damage to your tongue and cheeks, and the condition of any pre-existing dental work such as fillings.
If something looks odd, we can do further tests or even x-rays in order to understand what's going on with your teeth and gums.
Handling Routine Dental Work and Cleanings
We also take are of any routine dental work you may need. That includes fillings, extractions, root canals, putting in crowns, putting on braces, and more. Many of these routine procedures can be done the same day you're in, while others may require a return visit. Of course, we also take care of your regular six-month cleaning.
If we discover an issue that we're not able to do, we will sit down with you and discuss what's going on. We will talk to you about the condition, the symptoms you'll be facing, and what options you have. We can make referrals to dental surgeons and other experts if needed.
If you're in need of a general dentist, we're here for you! Contact us today to set up your first appointment or, if you've seen us before, to schedule your next regular cleaning.
