General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry focuses on diagnosing and treating common oral health issues. You can also discuss any dental concerns you may have and receive guidance for taking care of your teeth. 

Century Village Dental recommends scheduling a general dentistry appointment at least every six months for preventive care. Routine oral exams and teeth cleanings can help protect your teeth from tooth decay and gum disease.

What are some general dentistry services?

At Century Village Dental, the team provides a wide variety of general dentistry services, including:

Oral exams
An oral exam is a routine checkup that helps your provider to assess the overall health of your teeth and gums. 

During the exam, your provider may use a mirror to observe the soft and hard tissues in your mouth. They may order X-rays, a biopsy, or other tests to evaluate your oral health in more detail. 

Lab tests provide an effective way to detect potential oral health problems and prevent serious complications. They can also help guide treatment planning for other dental procedures. 

Teeth cleaning
A routine teeth cleaning is one of the best ways to keep your teeth in optimal condition. Your provider uses special tools to remove plaque — a sticky film that clings to the surfaces of your teeth.

After polishing your teeth and flossing them thoroughly, your provider may apply fluoride treatment, which helps to prevent tooth decay (cavities). 

Night guards 
If you have troubling sleeping due to snoring or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you may benefit from wearing a night guard. 

OSA is a disorder that causes you to stop breathing several times while you sleep. A night guard is a special device that helps to open up your airway. 

Night guards can accommodate the unique structure of your mouth to improve breathing quality.

For a simple extraction, your provider removes the tooth with forceps. If the problem is more complex (such as having an impacted tooth), they may recommend a surgical extraction and remove some of your gum tissue in order to access the tooth.

Century Village Dental can remove permanent teeth to prepare for restorations or extract wisdom teeth.
