General Dentistry Q&A

What are general dentistry services?

The health of your mouth and the appearance of your smile affect how you look and feel. Excellence Dental Services understands this, which is why its practices provide the absolute best dental care for you and your entire family.

General dentistry services include:

  • Twice yearly cleanings
  • Oral health screenings
  • Gum disease and tooth decay prevention
  • X-rays and other screenings
  • Wisdom teeth extraction

General dentistry services can also address tooth or gum pain, concerns about your breath, and issues with tooth sensitivity. The expert providers assess your oral health and offer specialized treatments, when necessary, to prevent complications.

Why are professional cleanings an important part of general dentistry care?

Good at-home oral hygiene is critical, too. You should brush at least two times per day, floss once per day, drink plenty of water, and avoid extremely sugary beverages and foods. Even if your at-home routine is consistent, you benefit from regular professional cleanings.

Professional cleanings discourage gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, as well as prevent dental decay and periodontitis (bone loss). A professional cleaning gets all the nooks and crannies that your oral hygiene routine misses.

Plus, an Excellence Dental Services professional can help you understand where you might be missing steps in your at-home routine and how you can improve to maintain long-term oral health.

What should I expect during a general dentistry exam?

Twice yearly dental examinations are an important component of your dental care. During this exam, your provider checks each tooth and looks at the surrounding soft tissue, like your gums, tongue, and cheeks.

These exams detect cavities, gum disease, and tooth damage, such as chips or cracks. A regular exam also includes an oral cancer evaluation and assesses the health of your temporomandibular joint.

Periodic oral X-ray images allow for a check of the underlying structures of your teeth. With X-rays, your provider can diagnose cavities, identify bone loss, and check for abnormal lesions.

General dentistry care is a cornerstone of good health. Call Excellence Dental Services or use the online tool to schedule an appointment with one of the practices.
