Maintain Good Oral Health With Preventive Care

It’s not just your smile that benefits from visiting the dentist. Your whole health benefits as well. When bacteria gets inside your mouth, good oral care practices prevent it from getting into your bloodstream. You reduce your risk for serious health issues like heart disease or diabetes. Plus, preventive solutions through general dentistry keep your teeth intact. Although aging is often associated with tooth loss, it doesn’t have to be with regular visits to the dentist.

At Miller Lung Dental Group, we provide a diverse range of general dentistry services. However, if more complex issues arise, you can trust our team to restore your smile. Our team has over 30 years of experience treating smiles. Plus, we have two specialty dentists on staff: a prosthodontist and an endodontist. They can help with advanced treatments like tooth replacement and root canals.

You may take advantage of preventive treatments such as:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams We’ll clean your teeth using our ultrasonic cleaning technology. It does a thorough job compared to traditional equipment, with less scraping. We’ll also examine your mouth for signs of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer.
  • Dental Sealants – If your smile needs an extra layer of defense against tooth decay, your dentist can apply a sealant to the chewing surfaces of your teeth. While sealants are most often used for children, adults can benefit, too.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Saliva is an important part of a healthy mouth. So if you have chronic dry mouth, it’s essential to get treatment. We’ll recommend products you can use at home to keep your mouth moist. We can also give you fluoride trays, since a dry mouth makes you more prone to decay.
  • Bad Breath Treatment – We’ll help you get rid of bad breath by recommending a special rinse. Your dentist will also examine your mouth to identify and treat other issues causing the problem.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – If you show signs of gum disease, we’ll do a deep cleaning procedure that gets rid of the infection. For more serious issues, we can refer you to a trusted specialist in our building.
  • Mouthguards – If you grind your teeth or play sports, your mouth needs protection. We can create a customized mouthguard for your unique needs. It lasts longer than anything bought from the store.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

Daily oral hygiene is essential to keeping your mouth clean and healthy. But as important as brushing and flossing are, they aren’t enough on their own to protect your teeth and gums. General dentistry covers a wide range of treatments designed to help you prevent and detect dental problems, so you can keep your oral health on track.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

If you want a healthy smile, you’ll want a diet rich in whole grains, fiber, fruits and vegetables, calcium, and lean proteins. Make sure you avoid sugary drinks or sticky sweets, which can damage your tooth enamel. Drink plenty of water too! This washes away bacteria from your teeth and gums.

Can I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth with fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.
