Disease Prevention For Better Overall Health
The two most important factors in maintaining lifelong dental health are routine preventive care visits to the dentist and a good oral hygiene routine at home. Our staff helps patients understand their unique oral health concerns and educates them on how to avoid complex problems with appropriate dental care. Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases affecting both children and adults today, and is often preventable with proper dental care.
Left untreated, tooth decay will lead to deteriorating oral health, which will impact your overall health and increase the risk or severity of cardiovascular and systemic disease. Drs. Patel will always recommend the most conservative treatment options, using high quality materials and advanced technology to maintain your smile with lasting results.
During routine visits, Drs. Patel and Patel will screen for common oral health concerns including periodontal disease, tooth decay and early signs of oral cancer or systemic disease. We use advanced digital diagnostics to spot developing problems in the earliest stages, allowing for prompt conservative treatment. An intra oral camera and digital dental x-rays provide instant, high resolution imagery with no discomfort and minimal radiation exposure.
General dental services can include:
- Dental exams and cleanings
- Metal free dental fillings
- Periodontal therapy
- Root canals
- Tooth extractions
Our office utilizes digital technology for more accurate diagnosis, less painful treatment and lasting results.
What is a general dentist?
A general dentist will treat people of all ages. General dentists use a combination of specialized care, including oral surgery, restorative services, and basic dental care treatments. General dentists use primarily use basic dental care treatments to prevent oral health problems. General dentists offer dental exams, x-rays, cavity fillings, and root canal treatment.
Is a root canal painful?
Today, root canals are usually painful. Most dentists now use local anesthesia before the procedure to numb the tooth and its surrounding areas. A root canal procedure should not be painful even if your dentist does not use anesthesia.
How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
The answer to this question can vary from person to person. Your oral surgeon will probably want you to relax for 48 to 72 hours. After the extraction, you should follow your oral surgeon’s instructions.
How can I improve my oral hygiene?
You should brush your teeth every day and twice per day. You should also floss once a day before or after brushing your teeth. Flossing is just as important as brushing your teeth. You should also consider mouth washing. Mouth washing reduces the amount of acid in the mouth, and it cleans hard-to-brush areas in and around the gums. You should drink more water and avoid sugary products as much as you can. Visit a dentist at least once every six months.
