General Dentistry- Dentistry is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions, disorders, and diseases of the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw. Considered necessary for complete oral health, dentistry can have an impact on the health of your entire body.

In the past Dentist repaired broken teeth, now we have the ability and materials to fix broken teeth. That means not patching them up, but making them as esthetic and strong as they were originally. We use the newest materials for filling teeth and if you have teeth that need crowns, the materials are strong and some stronger than natural tooth structure. Missing teeth can be replaced in many different ways. With the increase use of 3-D printers and better materials your teeth can be better than new.

Preventive Dentistry is performed, by having your teeth cleaned regularly, placement of sealants and use of fluoride on teeth. Prescription tooth paste that can decrease or eliminate sensitivity. Use of mouth guards to prevent harmful grinding and clenching. The need to change your diet and use of automatic tooth brushes are wonderful.

Certain medications can affect your teeth leading to swollen gums and poor hygiene.  Foods play an important role in preventing cavities.
