Protect Your Smile With Preventive Dental Care

Your smile does a lot for you. So, you want to keep it in the best condition possible. When you come in for a checkup, Dr. Rawlings gets to know you and your oral health goals. Every patient is unique. We never take a one-size-fits-all approach to your dental care. Instead, you’ll receive personalized treatment catered to your individual needs.

You’ll also benefit from our use of the latest dental technology. We take digital X-rays, exposing you to less radiation than film X-rays. We also use digital scanners for taking impressions. No more messy trays of goop in your mouth!

Depending on your smile needs, your appointment may include:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – If it’s your first appointment with us, we’ll take our time doing a thorough exam, including your head and neck. We’ll do an oral cancer screening and look for gum disease, cavities, and other issues. We’ll clean your teeth and discuss any necessary follow-up treatments.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – For patients who show signs of gum disease, we’ll do a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. It’ll restore your gum health and prevent reinfections.
  • Bad Breath or Dry Mouth Treatment – Dr. Rawlings will recommend products you can use at home if you struggle with chronic dry mouth or bad breath. Bad breath can also signify tooth decay or gum infection, so we’ll ensure your oral health is in top condition overall.
  • Mouthguards – We can create a customized mouthguard if you or your child plays sports. It will fit better and last longer than anything you can buy online or at a store.

If you are nervous, we go the extra mile to put you at ease. Education is a high priority for our team. We want you to understand the reasons for our treatment recommendations. You’ll find out all of your options, too. We have headphones to block out noise and warm blankets to give you the comforts of home. In addition, sedation options are available if you need extra help relaxing.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

Maintaining a beautiful smile and optimal oral health is the primary goal of general dentistry. We offer several services to achieve this, including dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, preventive treatments like fluoride application and dental sealants, and custom-made mouthguards for athletes. Regular dental care is crucial in preserving the health and beauty of your smile.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Foods that are good for your body also tend to be good for your teeth. This includes fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and calcium-rich foods like cheese. With their high water and fiber content, some fruits and veggies work almost like a toothbrush to clean plaque from teeth. Nuts are a great snack, as they contain minerals that help strengthen tooth enamel and make it more resistant to cavities.

Can I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth with fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.
