GENERAL DENTISTRY TREATMENTS
WHAT IS GENERAL DENTISTRY?
General dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health issues. It is an important part of overall health and well-being for both adults and children, as oral health is often indicative of your overall health. At Woodbourne Dental, patients have access to a range of dental treatments and preventive care.
WHAT ARE DENTAL CHECK-UPS AND DENTAL CLEANINGS?
During a routine dental exam, your dentist will check for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. If any issues are found, your dentist will recommend a course of treatment, which may include fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and extractions. Depending on the patient's needs, treatments can include periodic dental exams and cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants. These treatments are important to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. It is important to visit your dentist regularly. Regular dental cleanings and exams can help maintain your oral health, prevent cavities and gum disease, and detect any issues early. If any issues are found, your dentist can recommend a course of treatment to help restore your oral health and prevent further issues.
