General Dentistry

First Visit 

On your first visit to our practice, we take time to get to know more about you as a person as well as about your dental health.


We'll do a thorough oral exam, which includes the usual look around and any necessary X-rays, a cancer screening, and a check for periodontal disease. If treatment in any area is indicated, the options are discussed privately. You choose the alternative that works best for you.

Dental Equipment

Tooth Extraction and Restoration

We prefer to save your natural teeth whenever possible. We prioritize restorative methods such as dental fillings or dental crowns. In the event that tooth has been badly damaged and beyond repair, then removal may be necessary. We recommend tooth extraction if you have:


  • A fractured tooth

  • An impacted tooth

  • Crowded teeth

  • Severe tooth decay

  • Severe gum disease

  • Other dental injuries


First,  will assess your affected tooth and surrounding gums. We need to take dental X-rays to check bone levels and determine the extent of damage. Once we gathered all information and do proper assessment, we will discuss treatment and sedation options with you in detail.



Regular and Deep Cleaning

A regular cleaning is performed to maintain healthy gums. This helps remove the buildup of bacteria and tartar that accumulates in between the teeth and gums between regular cleanings.


The primary difference between regular dental cleaning and deep dental cleaning is that the former is not as extensive as the latter. Deep teeth cleanings are meant to treat periodontal or gum disease. We  often advised patients to take deep dental cleaning if they haven’t had regular dental cleaning appointments for a while. But often, we recommend this procedure for anyone who has gum disease or periodontal issues. A deep teeth cleaning, also known as gum therapy and usually referred to by dental professionals as gum scaling and root planing, is a dental treatment designed to clean between the teeth and gums all the way down to the roots.





Fluoride is the most effective agent available to help prevent tooth decay. We recommend the regular fluoride treatments for the following reasons:


  • Deep pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of teeth

  • Exposed and sensitive root surfaces

  • Fair to poor oral hygiene habits

  • Frequent sugar and carbohydrate intake

  • Inadequate exposure to fluorides

  • Inadequate saliva flow due to medical conditions, medical treatments or medications

  • Recent history of dental decay.


Fluoride helps strengthen the teeth once they have erupted as well as those that are developing under the gums, by seeping into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay.
