Keep Your Teeth In Top Health With General Dentistry In McKinney

Just as you apply a primer to achieve the best results when painting, your smile will respond better to cosmetic dentistry procedures like Invisalign or teeth whitening if you start with a healthy smile. Aside from daily brushing and flossing, the best way to keep your smile healthy is with general dentistry in McKinney.

Our dentists use advanced technology like intraoral cameras and digital X-rays for your general dental services. This helps us:

  • Give you a smile that looks great and feels great too
  • Stop cavities and gum disease from doing serious damage
  • Protect your teeth from dry mouth and other problems
  • Reduce the chances you’ll need costly dental repair like root canal treatment

Need a dental exam or other general dental service? Call us today at 972-787-1869. If you’re a new patient, you’re eligible for our special offer for a free exam with X-rays. Plus, we offer three levels of sedation if you’re nervous about your care.

General Dental Care Does Great Things For Your Smile

Because dental exams are essential to oral health, we suggest you see us for one every six months. In addition to exams, we’ll likely recommend some of our other general dental services:

  • Professional Cleanings – Your teeth will not only look and feel beautiful following a cleaning, but they’ll also be free of the bacteria that causes cavities and other problems.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Since saliva helps keep your teeth disease-free, it’s a problem when you don’t have enough of it. We’ll identify the underlying causes of the condition and suggest products to relieve unpleasant symptoms like mouth sores and bad breath.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Because gum disease is a common and potentially damaging problem, it’s important to reverse it in its early stages. A deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing returns your gums to health.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Applying fluoride to teeth strengthens the enamel so it is less susceptible to decay.
  • Dental Sealants – It can be especially tough to get bacteria out of the tiny grooves on the tops of your teeth when brushing at home. We can apply sealants to create a barrier against bacteria.
  • Custom Mouthguards – Our team can provide you a custom mouthguard that protects your teeth from sports injuries. Since it’s made using impressions of your teeth, it will fit your mouth perfectly.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is preventive care that helps keep your teeth and gum tissues as healthy and clean as possible. The foundation of general dentistry is regular examinations and cleanings. These are so essential to oral health and wellness that new patients can get complimentary exams and X-rays at our office. Other general dental services include sealants and fluoride treatments.

Can an orthodontist practice general dentistry?

Orthodontists and other dental specialists have completed basic dentistry training, so they are able to practice general dentistry. A lot of them do not, though. They focus on just their specialized areas. General dental experts, in contrast, typically perform a variety of dental services, including aesthetic dentistry and restorative dentistry.

Why should I go to a general dentist?

Going to a general dental professional is the best way to meet multiple dental needs in one place. Our team has the training and experience to provide the majority of services you need to keep your gums and teeth healthy and beautiful. From routine exams and cleanings to complicated full-mouth repairs and dental surgery, you’ll find a large array of services.
