Gloucester Dental is Your New General Dentistry Home
Seeing a dental professional on a routine basis to receive general dentistry care is a habit every member of your family should adopt. The best way to keep your oral health in peak condition is with proper at-home care and regular preventative dental visits. We recommend making an appointment at Gloucester Dental every six months for a checkup and dental cleaning. This will allow our team to identify any areas of concern, such as cavities or gingivitis, and clean your teeth and gums to ensure gum disease does not occur. Gloucester Dental is a multi-disciplinary practice that features dentists from multiple specialties to make our practice the one location you need to go to for all your dental care.
Our General Dentistry Services
While our practice offers some of the most modern and advanced dental procedures, general dentistry is a major focus of ours. Our dentist’s mission is to keep our community healthy through affordable and effective general dentistry and advanced care. We offer the preventative care you and your family need to stay in optimal oral health when visiting regularly. Preventative general dentistry services typically involve:
Teeth and Gum Cleaning
When the hygienist cleans your teeth, they typically can access areas of your mouth you may have trouble reaching at home.
Oral Hygiene Instruction
Our friendly hygienists and doctors can instruct you on the proper way to care for your oral health. This can include how to brush or floss properly and warning signs to look out for.
Oral Cancer Screening
Whenever you come in for general dentistry care we will screen your mouth and throat for signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer is a deadly disease that can be treated effectively if caught early enough, but has very few warning signs.
If you have seen another dentist and are looking for another opinion, we offer in-depth second opinions. We will inform you of our findings and compare our services to the original dentist.
Sealants and Fluoride
Sealants and fluoride are applied to hard to reach places of the teeth or to sensitive teeth with minimal enamel. They protect the teeth from bacteria and help prevent cavities from developing.
It is important to have routine x-rays taken of your jaw to help our doctors discover if anything abnormal is happening. X-rays can also show potential cavities, location of nerves, levels of the jaw bone and position of tooth roots.
