General Dental Care is Your Key to a Beautiful Smile

Since general dental treatment is so important, we offer a variety of services that fall under that category. We’ll never recommend treatments that you don’t need. Rather, we’ll advise you on the best way to keep your smile beautiful. Our services include:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – At your six-month visits, your dental hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth to remove plaque and tartar. Then, Dr. Kirchner will give you a complete dental exam.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – If we find evidence of gum disease, we’ll use a “deep cleaning” technique to remove infection from around and under your gumline.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Your mouth needs adequate saliva to wash away debris from your teeth. We can offer advice and recommend specialty products to help you manage this condition.
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – Bad breath can be embarrassing, plus it can often be a symptom of an underlying problem such as gum disease. We’ll find out what’s causing your bad breath and treat it accordingly.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – Athletes who wear mouth protection are much less likely to suffer dental damage. A professionally-made mouthguard fits better and offers better protection than one bought off the shelf.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings – We’ll examine your mouth for early signs of this disease so that you can get treatment as soon as possible.

Explore Our Other Types of Dentistry

During your dental exam, we may find problems that need treatment other than general dental care. We recommend needed treatments to protect your oral health and the health of the rest of your body. These include:

  • Tooth Fillings – Get a tooth-colored filling to repair damage from cavities.
  • Dental Crowns and Bridges – Repair damaged or worn teeth or replace missing teeth.
  • Orthodontics – Straighten your crooked teeth with a variety of orthodontic options.
  • Oral Surgery – We can remove damaged or diseased teeth or prepare your jaw for dental implants.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry includes several services that are designed to help you maintain an attractive smile and optimal oral health. Among these are dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, and custom-fit mouthguards to protect your teeth. Routine dental care goes a long way toward keeping your smile in the best shape possible.

How long is general dentistry school?

To become a general dentist, a person must first complete four years of undergraduate college. Then they will take the Dental Admission Test (DAT) and attend dental school for four years to be able to practice as a general dentist. In addition, every dentist must complete a minimum number of hours of continuing education each year to maintain their license to practice.

Can specialists practice general dentistry?

Yes, these are not mutually exclusive. In fact, dental specialists are educated in general dentistry techniques before they ever go on to a more advanced area of special focus for their work. So, while it is true that specialists can practice general dentistry, many times these doctors are not open to general dentistry cases. As such, your best bet is to partner with a comprehensive general dentist like Dr. Kirchner.

How can you treat dry mouth at home?

Depending on the cause of your dry mouth, you can take successful steps to remedy the condition. It may be as simple as drinking more water to keep you well hydrated. We can also recommend specialty products you can use at home to help keep your mouth moist so you feel more comfortable.
