General Dentistry Q & A

What are general dentistry services?

General dentistry services include care for your oral health and smile’s appearance. The Creative Dentistry of Brooklyn Heights team knows that the health of your mouth affects how you look and feel. General dentistry services include:

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

You may also take advantage of general dentistry services to assess tooth or gum pain, tooth sensitivity, or bad breath concerns. The experienced dental team provides advanced care to help you achieve pristine oral health.

What should I expect at a general dentistry visit?

At a general dentistry exam, your provider examines each tooth, the surrounding soft tissue, your tongue, and your cheeks. 

During an exam, the dentist also looks for signs of cavities, gum disease, or tooth damage. You’ll be evaluated for oral cancer risk and have the health of your bite examined. 

A general dentistry visit periodically includes oral X-rays that check your teeth’s underlying structure. X-rays are critical to diagnosing cavities, bone loss, and developmental issues like impacted wisdom teeth. 

Why are professional cleanings important?

While good at-home oral hygiene is to be celebrated, you just can’t reach all the areas of your mouth that gather bacteria with a standard toothbrush. Professional cleanings get at these hard-to-reach areas, discouraging gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. Professional cleanings can also discourage dental decay and bone loss. 

General dentistry services also include recommendations about how you can improve your at-home dental hygiene practices. Your professional hygienist can help you learn where you’re missing steps in your at-home routine and how you can improve to maintain long-term oral health.

What services are offered in addition to general dentistry care?

Creative Dentistry of Brooklyn Heights offers comprehensive dental care. Along with general dentistry that includes preventive care, exams, and cleanings, you benefit from:

  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Sedation dentistry
  • Gum recontouring

What treatments you take advantage of depends on your oral health, your oral health history, and your smile goals.
