If you are looking for dentistry to protect the health and beauty of your smile, or restore your teeth if they’ve been damaged, you’re looking for general dentistry. General dentistry includes preventive and restorative dentistry. At Denali Dental Care, we offer a full range of dental services to meet all your oral health needs.
Preventive dentistry is the best investment you can make in the health and beauty of your smile. Because of the widespread impact oral health has on your overall health, it may be your best health investment, period.
Preventive dentistry is a team effort. Your part is eating a tooth-healthy diet, performing good oral hygiene, and making your regular teeth cleanings and routine exams. Good oral hygiene means brushing your teeth twice a day, and flossing every day.
At your teeth cleaning and routine exam, we will perform our part. We will thoroughly clean your teeth and let you know if there are any areas that could use some extra attention. We will also let you know if there are any signs of tooth damage. Repairing damage when it’s small will prevent future damage.
Restorative dentistry is the treatment of oral disease and the repair of minor damage to your teeth and gums. Some people call it reconstructive dentistry, but we reserve that term for procedures that address more serious damage to your teeth, procedures like dental crowns or dental implants.
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the soft tissue around your teeth that can lead to receding gums, bone loss, and tooth loss. But the impacts of this chronic infection extend through your body, increasing your risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer, among other conditions.
Another common restorative dentistry procedure is fillings. Fillings are used to repair small tooth cavities caused by oral bacteria. We don’t use metal amalgam fillings. We have switched to cosmetic tooth-colored fillings that are also healthier for your teeth.
