General and Restorative Dental Care
The aim of general dentistry is to prevent, diagnose and treat dental problems. Restorative dentistry rebuilds a functional, healthy oral cavity, whether you are missing teeth or have vulnerable teeth.
The dentists at Stephens & Gatewood provide comprehensive services, and, with a few exceptions, we can address all of your dental problems under one roof – there's no running back and forth between specialists and your general dentist.
General and restorative services at Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry include:
- Dental implants
- Dental crowns and bridges
- Full and partial dentures
- Porcelain fillings
- Dental bonding
- Root canal therapy
- Tooth extraction
- TMJ treatment
- Emergency dentistry
When you visit us for a consultation, we will discuss a treatment plan with you with the goal of achieving your best dental health, including treating any current dental problems.
Common Dental Problems
The goal of our general dentists is to prevent problems, but sometimes they arise despite your best efforts at dental hygiene. When that happens we can step in and treat those issues. Some of the most common problems in the US are the following:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Abscessed teeth
- Missing teeth
- Gum recession
- Enamel erosion
- TMJ strain and discomfort
- Dental emergencies
The general and restorative services at our practice are designed to address all of these issues and others.
Tips for Effective Dental Hygiene
Great dental health starts at home. Your at-home routine in conjunction with routine cleanings will keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.
Here are the fundamentals of good oral hygiene:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day, for two minutes each time
- Use gentle, light pressure to brush all the surfaces of your teeth
- Floss your teeth once a day, every day
- Curve floss around the contour of your teeth, moving gently all the way down to the gum line
- Limit between-meal snacking
- Reduce or eliminate sugary beverages like soda from your diet
- Chew sugarless gum between meals to stimulate saliva and reduce bacteria
- Visit the dentist routinely for cleanings and exams
Your routine visits are critical to removing the built-up plaque and tartar you cannot remove with your toothbrush and floss. While the professional cleanings are vital, equally important are the exams in which the dentists look for signs of decay, oral cancer, gum disease and other problems. By monitoring for issues routinely, we can help you avoid them altogether, or treat them early should they arise.
