General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is the professional care of your oral health. The Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry team offers state-of-the-art services to rehabilitate, restore, and maintain the health of your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues in your mouth. 

What general dentistry services do you provide?

The team at Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry provides several general dentistry services, including:

Dental cleanings and exams

No matter how well you brush and floss at home, you still need to have routine cleanings and exams with the team at Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry to maintain a healthy smile. During your dental cleaning, one of the highly skilled hygienists carefully cleans your teeth, ensuring they are free of plaque and tartar. After your cleaning, your dentist performs a dental exam to assess your oral health and recommends any treatments if necessary.

Fillings

If you have a cavity caused by tooth decay, your provider can administer a filling to restore your oral health. When you get a filling, your dentist cleans the decayed area in your tooth, then fills the resulting hole with a tooth-colored material.

Dental implants

Missing teeth cause many oral health issues, including bone loss, uneven distribution of force in your bite, and difficulty eating and speaking. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium embedded in your jawbone. They fuse with your bone tissue and serve as the foundation for a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or denture, effectively replacing your missing tooth or teeth and restoring your oral health. 

Root canals

If you have a tooth that’s severely damaged or infected, your provider can perform a root canal. During a root canal, an oral surgeon removes the damaged or infected pulp from within your tooth, restoring the tooth and saving it from an extraction.

Why is it important to maintain good oral health?

Your mouth is a vital component of your body and the entry point to your digestive and respiratory tracts. It also harbors a large quantity of bacteria, some of which are good and necessary to your body’s proper functioning, and some of which can be unhealthy. If you don’t keep your mouth healthy, it impacts the overall health of the rest of your body. 

Some of the diseases and conditions that have been linked to poor oral health include:

  • Endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of your heart valves
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Birth complications like premature birth and low birth weight
  • Pneumonia
