You Can Maintain Your Health with General Dentistry

Dental cleanings are the foundation of general dentistry, which is focused on maintaining tooth and gum health. During routine dental cleanings, our hygienists remove plaque and tartar from the mouth. Plaque is a bacterial film. Once this film hardens, it becomes tartar, which is more difficult to remove.

Our hygienists use stainless steel dental tools to remove bacteria that can easily cause infections. We also provide dental exams and screenings for problems like oral cancer, gum disease, and cavities. Digital X-rays also aid in treatment planning if we discover a dental concern during your visit.

In addition to dental cleanings, our general dental treatments keep your teeth and gums healthy. These treatments also prevent increased dental problems.

We will recommend custom-made sports mouthguards if you or your child play contact sports like soccer, basketball, or lacrosse. Our office can make custom mouthguards from dental impressions. Wearing a mouthguard can prevent broken, chipped, or lost teeth.

You may have a cavity if you notice a toothache or sharp tooth pain. Dental fillings are a routine treatment for dental cavities. Cavities, or holes in the teeth, need prompt treatment to prevent the need for tooth extractions. Our office uses tooth-colored, metal-free fillings. These fillings are safer than traditional metal fillings.

If you have dental fear or anxiety, we may recommend sedation dentistry. While under sedation, you may feel sensations, but you will not feel pain. We often provide sedation during complex or long treatments so you stay relaxed and comfortable.

When should I see a general dentist?

We recommend that you visit a general dentist every six months. At regular dental visits, we provide a thorough cleaning, exam, and screenings. We can also give you oral hygiene tips to help you brush and floss properly at home.

You may also call our office if you notice any new dental concerns. We can examine your mouth to determine the right treatment to meet your goals and dental health needs.

The Latest in Restorative Dentistry

Our Baltimore County dentist office stays current with the latest dental technology. Modern technology helps us create accurate treatment plans, find emerging dental problems, and provide efficient care.

Digital X-rays are essential to restorative dentistry. Before we begin restorative care, we take X-rays to pinpoint areas that need treatment and find infected and damaged teeth. We can treat problems like tooth decay and gum infections before we provide restorative care.

Our office provides bridges, crowns, and dental implants to treat tooth damage, worn teeth, and missing teeth. Dental bridges are prosthetics that restore one or more missing teeth. If you have a row of lost teeth, this restoration can “bridge the gap.”

Dental implants are small titanium posts we place in the mouth to support restorations. Implants can secure a single crown, bridges, or dentures. We will place implants based on your amount of healthy jaw bone and gum tissue. Digital imaging helps us determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.

CEREC crowns offer same-day treatment with CAD/CAM technology. CAD/CAM helps us take images and impressions of your teeth. Then, we use milling machines to create a custom crown. You don’t have to wait weeks for your new restoration.

Is restorative dentistry worth it?

Yes. While restorative dental treatments may take time, the results are worth it. Restorative dentistry can improve your oral health and mouth function.

Crowns, bridges, and implants can create a more even bite. An even bite makes eating and speaking more comfortable. Fixing tooth damage and restoring lost teeth will also improve your smile’s comfort and appearance.

Offering High-Quality Cosmetic Dentistry

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to enhance the smile’s appearance. Our office provides cosmetic treatments that provide proven results. We want you to achieve a beautiful smile that fits your cosmetic goals. Our cosmetic treatments can treat stained teeth, chipped teeth, and more.

Tooth stains are one of the most common cosmetic problems among patients. Zoom!™ teeth whitening treatment can lift tooth stains and bleach teeth by multiple shades. Porcelain veneers are an alternative to whitening for patients with deep tooth stains. Veneers can also cover misshapen teeth, short teeth, and gaps between teeth.

How much is cosmetic dentistry?

The cost of cosmetic dental care depends on these factors:

  • Treatment type
  • Number of treated teeth
  • Number of treatments

While dental insurance does not typically cover the cost of cosmetic treatments, we accept CareCredit, LendingClub, and Proceed Finance. These companies provide payment plans to keep cosmetic dentistry within your budget. We will discuss the cost of your treatment before we begin.
