Protect Your Teeth For Life With General Dental Services

You use your teeth every single day, which is why it’s so important to keep them as healthy as they can be. For the sake of your oral and overall health, strong teeth are invaluable. Our team can help you keep them for life.

Routine cleanings and exams should be part of your oral hygiene routine, but that’s just the beginning of the ways we can help you. We also offer:

  • Fluoride Treatments and Varnish – Fluoride provides reinforcement for your smile. It can repair minor damage and make your teeth stronger.
  • Dental Sealants – Harmful bacteria live inside your mouth. Sealants create a barrier between them and your teeth.
  • Custom-Made Mouthguards – Injuries during high-impact sports or as a result of grinding your teeth can damage them. The right mouthguard could spare your smile.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Our deep cleaning treatments can keep gum disease from advancing to more damaging stages.
  • Nutritional Counseling – To help you make healthier decisions, we can discuss how what you eat and drink affect your mouth.

To find decay as early as we can, we use digital X-rays to get a detailed view of your mouth. For patients with persistent dry mouth or bad breath, we are happy to help you find solutions that work for you. By working with our team, you can have the healthy teeth and gums you deserve.

We Make Comfort Part of Your General Dental Care

Your comfort is a priority along with your oral health. At LakeCrest Dental, you can:

  • Sit in one of our massage chairs
  • Have some lip balm or water to keep your lips and mouth from feeling dry
  • Watch one of your favorite movies or TV shows or listen to music
  • Get a pillow and a blanket to stay cozy and warm
  • Receive sedation to keep you relaxed and pain-free

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry covers basic dental services that are designed to keep your mouth healthy, your teeth clean, and your smile bright. It includes dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, and preventive care like fluoride treatments and tooth sealants. Regular general dental care will help you avoid more extensive dental work in the future. You can save on these treatments and more with our LakeCrest Dental Wellness Plan.

How do I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth in fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.

Why is general dentistry important?

General dentistry is important because it is the first line of defense in protecting your smile against major problems. Regular dental visits allow us to monitor your oral health so we can catch small problems early and treat them before they worsen. Also, regular dental care will help you maintain confidence that your smile is attractive and that you don’t have any lingering oral problems.
