Achieve and Maintain Your Dental Health
General Dental Treatments
Brushing and flossing every day is an important part of maintaining excellent dental health, but it is crucial to make annual visits to the dentist for checkups and other treatment that can clean hard-to-reach areas and detect potential complications before they become advanced. If you need to start a relationship with a dentist who can provide the general dental treatment you need and deserve, please contact our Rockville, Maryland office today.
General dental services we offer at our patients' annual checkups include teeth cleanings, oral cancer screenings, dental X-rays, and screenings for tempormandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. We recommend scheduling a general dental checkup at least once a year.
When the inner portion (pulp) of a tooth becomes infected, it is crucial to remove the pulp to salvage the outer structure of the tooth. Root canal therapy is the process of removing infected tooth pulp, including that which extends deep into the complex canals of the tooth roots.
Tooth-colored fillings are an essential part of completing cavity treatment and root canal therapy. After decayed portions of the tooth are removed, a white plastic composite reinforces the tooth's structure, protecting against further decay and restoring a natural appearance. Tooth-colored fillings provide a wealth of advantages over traditional silver amalgam fillings.
If you have a damaged or missing tooth, a dental crown can restore balance and a natural appearance to your smile. Crowns are custom-made tooth-shaped covers designed to fit over a damaged tooth, or to restore a dental implant. They are available in a variety of materials to provide you with the functionality and appearance you require.
