What is general dentistry?

General dentistry provides you comprehensive preventive and restorative care to help you preserve a healthy smile. 

Dr. Bram provides routine checkups and professional cleanings as part of the practice’s general dentistry care. During these visits, he may catch problems, like the early signs of gum disease, hidden decay, or impacted teeth, before they cause significant problems. Dr. Bram and his team also educate you about how to care for your teeth in between visits. 

What treatments are part of general dentistry care?

General dentistry treatments offered at Doc Bram include: 

  • Cavity detection and fillings
  • Root canals
  • Sports and night guard assessments
  • Sleep apnea appliances
  • Evaluations for dental crowns, bridges, and implants
  • Periodontal disease maintenance

Seeing Dr. Bram for general dentistry means you also have a trusted provider to turn to if you should suffer a dental emergency. Doc Bram has all your dental records on hand, so they can provide you the best care possible.

How often should I schedule general dentistry visits?

Patients benefit from visiting Doc Bram every six months for professional cleanings and comprehensive oral exams. Anyone with a history of periodontal disease or other oral health problems may require more frequent visits. 

Dr. Bram recommends a schedule that’s appropriate for you. 

How does general dentistry prevent oral health problems?

Prevention of oral health problems is the best way to maintain a healthy smile. Regular, professional cleanings get any plaque or tartar that sits in areas your at-home brushing just can’t reach. This means it’s less likely that you’ll suffer gum disease or tooth decay.

During your dental exam, Dr. Bram identifies any possible concerns that could affect your long-term health. These include signs of gum disease, gum recession, cavities, or oral cancer. 

General dentistry includes digital X-rays taken about once per year. These images allow Dr. Bram to see beneath your gums to identify any underlying issues. When detected early, Dr. Bram can develop a treatment plan that’s least impactful to your long-term smile’s health or appearance.
