We provide numerous forms of specialized oral care here at The Smile Company, but our general dentistry services provide the primary dental care for the whole family. Regularly brushing and flossing your teeth are of course necessary but these practices are not enough.
Maintaining the Health of Your Teeth and Gums
We supplement your at-home oral care with professional teeth cleaning. This is crucial, because the tartar that forms in and around your teeth require professional tools and skills which you cannot do at home.
We also provide educational supplements regarding dental care so that you can be sure that you're brushing and flossing your teeth properly, and that you're using the right brands of toothbrush and toothpaste.
This is one of the most important aims of general dentistry. We assess the state of each tooth and your gums very carefully, so that we can look for signs of impending trouble. We prevent these problems from coming up, or reduce the severity and the cost of the problems.
For example, we can put fillings on your tooth cavities so that they don't get worse. We can also put in caps or bond to repair damage to the teeth that may lead to severe problems later on. We can also extract your wisdom teeth if they pose a risk to your oral health.
Aside from these, we also help maintain the state of your gums. We look for early signs of gum disease and we take the appropriate action if we find early signs of infection. It is always recommended that treatments for oral problems are given as quickly as possible, before the symptoms of the condition become worse.
If conditions are serious and you need special care, we can either provide those specialized treatments or recommend a specialist who can best deal with your specific condition.
General Dentistry Treatments
We offer many types of general dentistry treatments to restore the health of your teeth. We can put in fillings, fix stained and chipped teeth, and help your teeth grow evenly. We can restore teeth that have come loose, extract teeth that need to come out, and put in replacements for missing teeth.
At The Smile Company, we will discuss your needs and options so that we can come up with a dental hygiene plan that's customized to your specific situation. We will incorporate proper cleaning and regular dental exams, so that problems can be prevented, discovered, diagnosed, and treated early on. We can also repair the damage caused by tooth decay, disease, or dental accidents.
