General dentistry consists of preventive procedures and other types of treatment meant to maintain and improve patients' oral health. 

General Dentistry Treatment Options

Whether you need a routine cleaning, X-rays, or restorative treatments, our team can help you regain and maintain a healthy smile. Some of the general dentistry options we provide include:


Tooth extraction is the process of fully removing a decayed, damaged, or injured tooth that may be threatening the overall oral health of a patient. This is done when a tooth cannot be repaired or restored with a dental crown, inlay, or onlay. When decay or bacterial buildup is allowed to remain, they eventually spread and damage the healthy surrounding teeth and gum tissue. Extractions are commonly performed using local anesthesia, in addition to any necessary sedation.

Sedation Options

Sedation dentistry is a useful tool that helps anxious or fearful patients receive the dental treatment they need to maintain optimal oral health. There are different levels of sedation available, ranging from nitrous oxide to oral medication or general anesthesia. We take the safety and comfort of our patients very seriously, and will always prioritize your health.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy involves the removal of bacterial build-up and infected tissue inside of a tooth before sealing and restoring it with a dental crown. This option helps preserve a severely compromised tooth rather than extracting it completely. Despite the common misconception that root canals are very uncomfortable, with sedation dentistry and local anesthetic, our patients often compare the process to a dental filling.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

When your wisdom teeth are impacted or growing in irregularly, it may be in your best interest to remove them completely. This can also help when your mouth is too crowded and you need to preserve the effects of previous orthodontic treatment. Similar to tooth extraction, you will receive local anesthetic and sedation, if necessary, to make sure you are comfortable. Sometimes wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, need to be broken into pieces before they can be fully extracted. After the wisdom tooth removal procedure, you will be given explicit instructions on how to manage discomfort and shorten recovery time.

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery includes a diverse range of treatments, from complex tooth extraction to TMJ repair. Patients who choose dental implants undergo a surgical procedure to place the titanium posts in the jawbone, and your doctor can perform bone grafts if the jaw needs to be strengthened. We can refer patients to trusted local physicians, as needed.

Cleanings and Exams

The most common general dentistry procedures are routine cleanings and examinations. Staying up-to-date with your dental care and following up with your doctor regularly not only helps you maintain good oral health but also plays a key role in preventing any problems before they become complicated. Our team will conduct an oral cancer screening during your dental examination to help detect serious issues at their earliest stages.  

Periodontal Therapy

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the U.S. Periodontal therapy can help manage its effects and restore your oral health. Depending on your needs, the doctors may recommend scaling and root planing, also known as a deep cleaning, or surgical treatment.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

The TMJs are active during chewing, talking, yawning, or laughing. Each side is also an intricate part of the facial structure, containing a small joint that can cause headaches and other problems when impaired. We offer several TMJ disorder treatment options, depending on the severity of the case, and can often provide relief with a simple oral appliance. BOTOX® injections have also been found to be effective in providing therapeutic benefits.
