Have You Put off Seeing the Dentist?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 90% of adults have had a cavity at some point in their life. Cavities, when not addressed, can lead to advanced tooth decay or even tooth loss. When tooth decay goes unchecked, tooth pain can be an unfortunate side effect.

With general dentistry procedures, including fillings and root canal therapy, our dentist can reverse the damage caused by decay, eliminate pain, strengthen teeth, and promote a healthier smile in the process.

Our General Dentistry Services

General dentistry is all about correcting and preventing many of the common problems associated with teeth and gums. Our experienced team and dentists perform our dental procedures in our Elk Grove, CA office. Below are some of our general dental services to promote a healthy, full smile.
Single Tooth Veneer Services

Root Canal Therapy

When persistent tooth infections occur, due to cavities, a root canal may be needed. Root canals are an endodontic service. We may recommend root canal therapy to restore the health of your tooth and stop further decay. This is an excellent option to preserve the tooth and prevent an extraction.

Dentures

Missing just one tooth can affect the health of your smile. It is essential to seek replacements for missing teeth from being more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease to allow teeth to shift out of place.

Dentures allow patients to fill the gaps in their smile. These dental appliances can be used to replace one, multiple, or all teeth. Dentures are versatile, affordable, and an excellent option for smile restoration.

Fillings

Fillings are one of the most well known and most frequently used treatments in the dental field. Dental fillings correct tooth decay. They restore health and function to a tooth. Your dentist can use fillings to achieve a better appearance for teeth and prevent tooth infections from happening. We offer a few options to meet patients’ needs and budgets for fillings. Some options for dental fillings are metals like gold and silver, porcelain which are ideal for filling cavities in visible locations, or a composite resin.

FAQs

What Is a General Dentist?

A general dentist provides the primary services needed to keep a patient’s oral health. These procedures and treatments aren’t typically geared toward cosmetic purposes, preferably towards the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw.

Do General Dentists Pull Teeth?

General dentists or oral surgeons can perform extractions. For more complex extractions, a patient may need to see an oral surgeon. Generally, removing a visible tooth is a more straightforward procedure versus a tooth that has broken below the gum line.

Can a General Dentist Do Root Canals?

Yes. Your general dentist can perform root canals along with extractions. However, if there is a more complicated case requiring endodontic treatment, you may be referred to a specialist.

Can a Dentist Tell If You Don't Brush Your Teeth?

One of the most frequent questions we get is if we can tell if a patient doesn’t brush. The short answer is, yes, we know. Many signs can point to whether or not a person brushes or doesn’t. This can include a build-up of plaque and tartar. Gum sensitivity and inflammation can also be indicators of not brushing.
