General dentistry focuses on maintaining overall oral health and the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of dental conditions. General dentists are the primary dental care providers for patients of all ages and are crucial in promoting good oral hygiene practices and addressing common dental issues.
At General and Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa, our Dentist in Tampa, FL provide comprehensive general dentistry services, including preventive treatments like fluoride applications and dental sealants, and also educate patients on proper oral hygiene practices and how they can maintain good oral health.
Regular dental check-ups involve thoroughly examining the teeth, gums, and oral tissues to assess oral health, identify signs of dental problems, and plan appropriate treatments.
Dental hygienists typically perform dental cleanings. They involve the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth using specialized instruments. The teeth are then polished to create a smooth surface.
Our general dentists may perform a tooth extraction when a tooth is severely damaged, decayed, impacted, or causing overcrowding. Wisdom tooth extractions are also common.
Removable dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored acrylic base that rests on the gums. Partial dentures replace some missing teeth, while complete dentures replace all the teeth in an arch.
Our general dentists diagnose and treat gum diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis. Treatments may involve deep cleaning, antibiotic therapy, and providing instructions for improved oral hygiene practices.
During routine dental exams, our general dentists check for signs of oral cancer, including abnormal lesions or growths on the oral tissues. Early detection is crucial for successful treatment.
