What is a General Dentist?
You’re probably most familiar with general dentistry, which is similar to a "family doctor" for your teeth. This is the dentist you visit for routine oral healthcare services like dental cleaning, fluoride treatments, fillings, crowns and X-Rays. They are your “go-to” provider for any questions or concerns related to your oral health.
General dentists usually offer both preventative and restorative services. Preventative services include regular cleanings and exams that ensure the teeth, gums, tongue, and surrounding musculature remains healthy.
When anomalies such as tooth decay or oral diseases are detected, general dentists perform a wide range of restorative services such as crowns, fillings, and root canals.
Routine visits with your dedicated general dentist office are important for maintaining, tracking, and treating your oral health over your lifetime.
General Dentistry Services
Newman Family Dental Center is a Dental “family practice”, which does more than just offer you access to General Dentistry. In every cleaning appointment, we perform a dental exam using modern diagnostic tools like digital X-Rays and 3D scanning of the mouth and supportive bones to those teeth. With our on-site 3D cone beam scanning technology, we can quickly scan your teeth, jaw, mouth and jaw structures into a 3D virtual model to check for problems.
Our offices offer a wide range of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic services including:
- Dental emergencies such as an abscess in your gums
- Repairing a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth
- Tooth reconstruction, whether it is from a sudden trauma like a fall or sports injury, or a long standing problem that has been ignored
- Treatment for gum disease
- TMJ and sleep apnea treatment
- Denture repair, replacement
- Aligners (like Invisalign)
We also offer IV Sedation and anxiety management to help people more easily cope with those services which require incisions and or drilling treatments.
