If you are looking for a dentist that can meet everyone’s needs, look no further. Our office in Saratoga Springs, UT, offers full service general dentistry for your entire family.
What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry (or family dentistry) is devoted to the prevention, diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment of disorders affecting not only your teeth and gums but also all the bones and structures connected to them. It covers all routine care and preventative treatments. It can also cover many types of treatments and even restorative procedures.
We work closely with each patient to prevent problems and treat them early on. General dentistry is the service for all dental needs of the patient. As much as 80% (or more) of those needs are preventative services/procedures.
The American Dental Association advises you to visit your dentist every six months for a checkup. These checkups are important because they focus on preventative maintenance that protects the long-term health of your teeth and mouth. Ignoring essential dental care can damage the health of your mouth and can also affect the health of your entire body. These services often include:
- Routine cleanings
- Dental exams
We can also treat a number of common concerns that may arise despite the best preventative care. Any concerns noticed during your routine dental exam should be addressed as early as possible before they impact the health of your teeth and gums. Often, patients who neglect visiting the dentist for some time may experience dental concerns and require treatments, including:
- Fillings for cavities
- Scaling and root planing (deep cleaning)
- Tooth extractions
- Root canal therapy
Finally, we also offer restorative procedures to help bring your smile back to beauty and function after damage has harmed it. These procedures are not always for cosmetic purposes. Sometimes restoration is vital for maintaining the health of the oral cavity and your entire maxillofacial area. These might include treatments to restore facial and jaw structure and replace missing teeth, and include:
- Bone grafting
- Dental bridges
