General Dentistry in Claremont, NC

General Dentistry

A focus on preventive dentistry helps you maintain the highest standard of oral health while limiting dental expenditures. A partnership between you and our team pays dividends, protecting your smile now and well into the future.

At home, prevention may include brushing and flossing twice a day. But many strategies and oral health aids exist that may fit your situation even better. Often patients are surprised to learn that a particular toothpaste, rinse, or specialized toothpick will serve them best and make all the difference in their efforts. Our team can help customize solutions that enhance your daily efforts, often turning frustration into smiles at the healthy changes that occur.

Your diet plays a critical role in oral health as well. Acidic foods and drinks can accelerate deterioration of your teeth, and certain foods can enhance the health of your supporting jawbone and gums. Our team believes in bringing your efforts and ours into balance for optimum health.

And of course, regular dental exams and cleanings prove vital in preventing decay and gum disease as you keep daily habits consistent. With a proactive approach, together we can prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.

What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry covers treatments, preventive measures, and procedures that help maintain overall oral health. It focuses on keeping your mouth, gums, and teeth healthy and free of pain. Think of it as a general practice but limited to oral healthcare.

General dentistry services play a critical role in keeping you healthy. If ignored, tooth decay or gum diseases can lead to other infections and health conditions. You can put your entire health at risk by not paying enough attention to your dental care. That’s why regular visits to your general dentist are necessary.

Types of Preventive Dentistry

Dentistry is as much about prevention as it is about treatment. After all, prevention is always better than cure. Preventing a potential tooth decay or gum infection is much easier than treating it. That’s where our general dentistry services come in.

Our services include regular oral exams, teeth cleaning, routine x-rays, home care, and periodontal disease care. We also provide oral cancer screening in our general dentistry services. Our experienced and skilled preventive dentistry specialists will make you feel comfortable whenever you drop in for your regular checkups.

Our services include:

Teeth Cleaning

While dental emergencies can strike anyone, our patients who commit to regular preventive care present with significantly fewer problems over time. Professional cleanings with a registered dental hygienist allow us to bring a blend of proactive efforts to you.

Oral Cancer Screening

Every time we provide care, we’re observing many different aspects of your overall health. Most people are surprised at the large amount of surface area that lines the mouth. While this lining repairs itself quickly, it is susceptible to changes that may require monitoring or further evaluation.

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is the most common adult dental affliction. About 30% of the population experiences gum disease, and it’s the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.
