Prevent Problems With General Dental Services

Dr. Gregory Williams, a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, can reconstruct even the most damaged smiles using solutions like dental implants. You can often prevent the need for this kind of extensive treatment, though, by taking a proactive approach to your dental health.

Visit us regularly for these general dentistry services:

  • Dental Exams – Thorough exams are an essential foundation for your oral health. We’ll look for evidence of cavities and gum disease, as well as other problems like dental damage caused by teeth grinding.
  • Dental Cleanings – We’ll remove plaque and tartar buildup from your tooth enamel, including tough-to-clean areas like your back teeth. These bacteria-filled substances cause decay and gum disease, so removing them helps keep your teeth disease-free.
  • Preventive Services – Fluoride and dental sealants are simple and inexpensive treatments that help keep your teeth in top shape. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel so it’s more resistant to decay. Sealants give you an added layer of protection against harmful bacteria.
  • Mouthguards – Professional mouthguards help protect your teeth from athletic injuries, with a custom fit you can’t get from products purchased in a store. We also provide mouthguards to relieve TMJ pain and to help you breathe more easily while sleeping.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – We’ll work with you to identify the root causes of this uncomfortable condition, which may include smoking or certain prescription medications. We can also suggest products to encourage better saliva flow. Treating dry mouth often helps eliminate halitosis (bad breath).
  • Gum Disease Treatment – We use a deep cleaning technique called scaling and root planing to remove bacteria from around and under your gums. The treatment also smooths out any exposed tooth roots to promote healing.

Save Money on General Dental Care

Because preventive dental care is so essential, we want to make sure it’s always affordable! While insurance generally covers exams and similar services, we offer money-saving options for those who don’t have insurance. Ask us about our:

  • New Patient Special – If you’re a new patient without insurance, you can receive a dental exam, complete with a gum disease screening and an oral cancer screening, for just $79. Mention it when you schedule your appointment.
  • Membership Club – If you join our membership club, you can make low monthly payments that cover your exams and cleanings and offer savings of 20 percent on most other services. We offer plans for adults, adults who have been diagnosed with gum disease, and children.
