Comprehensive services, consistent and compassionate care for healthy, beautiful smiles
General dentistry includes both restorative and preventive services that are essential for ensuring your dental and overall health. In fact, a general dentist like Dr.Robertson is your “first of line defense” to prevent tooth decay and gum disease – the leading causes of tooth loss.
Read on to learn more about the many ways our team preserves the health, comfort, and beauty of your one-of-a-kind smile.
What does preventive dentistry involve?
Preventive dentistry is proactive, meaning we provide the services you need to help lower your risks for costly and invasive dental health issues in the future.
Our team’s recommendations align with the ADA. Generally, proactive care is built on a foundation of dental exams and cleanings. These services are administered at least two times each year for healthy patients.
During your examination, Dr. Robertson looks for potential problems with your teeth and gums and conducts an oral cancer screening. X-rays are periodically ordered as necessary to get a clear and detailed view of your supporting structures and teeth.
Professional teeth cleanings remove the bacteria and plaque build-up (tartar) that your toothbrush and dental floss leave behind.
What other general dental services do you offer?
We have all aspects of oral health maintenance covered! The services that are provided to you depend on your unique needs and preferences. Dr. Robertson works with you to develop a treatment plan, which may include restorations to rebuild a portion of a tooth (such as fillings or crowns). Restorations can also include tooth replacement options such as bridges, dentures, and implants. Additionally, highly specialized offerings include the evaluation and treatment of TMJ disorders and sleep-disordered breathing (sleep apnea and snoring).
What are the benefits of regular dental visits?
In addition to offering professional services that prevent conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease, our team also provides tailored guidance on home care techniques, oral care products, and nutrition. We also get to know any specific challenges to your oral health, which may be presented by comorbidities. We stay on top of changes to your health status, including new diagnoses and medications that can increase your risk of developing cavities and periodontal disease.
