General Dentistry

General dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health problems. This includes regular check-ups, teeth cleaning, filling cavities, and treating gum disease.

General dentists also provide education on oral hygiene and diet to help prevent future problems. They may also refer patients to specialists for more complex procedures such as orthodontics or oral surgery.

Overall, the goal of general dentistry is to maintain the overall health and function of the teeth, gums, and jaw.

What Exactly Is
General Dentistry?

Comprehensive Dental Exam

Good oral health begins with a comprehensive dental exam. This is a thorough exam that involves:

Evaluation of check-up x-rays
Inspect your teeth for cavities, cracks chipped teeth, missing teeth, discolored teeth, and missing or broken fillings.
Check your gums for signs of gum disease.
Oral cancer screening
After the exam, we will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. Our patients are invited to ask questions and discuss concerns with our experienced dentists.

Teeth Cleaning

We provide teeth cleaning to remove plaque, tartar, and stains to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Routine cleanings are the best way to prevent gum disease.

 Natural Looking White Fillings

We utilize the best-in-class white composite fillings to repair teeth that are damaged by cavities or fractures. The white filling material is carefully selected to match the color of your existing teeth, providing you with a long-lasting and healthy smile.

Root Canal Treatment

We provide comfortable root canal treatment to alleviate the pain of an infected tooth and prevent the need for extraction. We provide the most up-to-date techniques and anesthetics to ensure your comfort.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth typically begin causing problems in late teens and young adulthood. If you develop pain due to infection or decay of the wisdom teeth, our experienced dentists can help.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Dr. Malik Usman will help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. We offer many cosmetic dentistry services including teeth whitening, clear aligners “Invisalign”, porcelain veneers “Lumineers”, dental implants, and more.

This procedure involves removing all the pulp in the pulp chamber temporarily for the sake of pain relief. Pulpectomy is typically called for when pulpotomy isn’t an option and all of the tooth’s pulp has become infected, inflamed, and disease-ridden. After removal, the canals are medicated and cleaned.

Sometimes, dentists do pulpectomy on primary or milk teeth. In such cases, the pulp is replaced with resorbable material. This is the recommended course of action for irreversible pulpitis on redicular and coronal pulp as well as primary molars that are abscessed.
