The Benefits of General Dentistry

Oral health is an important aspect of your overall health and wellbeing. Together, with the help of your dentist, maintaining your oral health will provide physical benefits as well as the confidence and self-esteem that comes with a beautiful smile. More benefits of general dentistry include the following:
Prevention of infections and other problems that may arise from neglected oral care
Early detection of dentistry issues, which mean we can intervene early, so dental problems don’t become bigger health issues
Early intervention for dental problems that do arise, which can save you time and money
Regular cleaning and maintenance can ward off the need for teeth whitening and help keep your mouth fresh and healthy

General Dentistry at Elevate Dental

Our dentists are experienced in many aspects of dentistry, including general dentistry. The following are some of the services we focus on:

Children’s Dentistry

We begin working with patients as young as two years old. While they may not need much intervention, early dental checkups are very important to help your child become accustomed to the dentist as part of their overall health care. In addition, we often detect early signs of decay or gum disease before children know there’s a problem, and early intervention means less pain and discomfort.

Orthodontics & Braces

Orthodontics and braces are common dental solutions to straighten crooked teeth. When you bring your child for regular dental visits, we can intervene early to straighten teeth, alleviate bite problems, and ward off jaw pain. We can help you navigate the options so your child gets the most appropriate care they need.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, but when they do, our skilled dentists can ensure the process is smooth with as little pain as possible. We offer sleep sedation for enhanced pain relief and to help reduce any fears or anxieties. And you can take comfort knowing that we can quickly determine if your wisdom teeth are problematic and refer you to an oral surgeon to help, if needed.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatments do not have to be painful. It is common for infections to spread before patients become aware of it, which often leads to the need for a root canal treatment. Our experienced dentists can help ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. In many cases, we can even save the tooth, so you hold onto your natural teeth as long as possible.

Fillings, Inlays and Onlays

Cavities are common, especially among children, and with regular dental checkups, we will find cavities before they get out of hand. We offer dental fillings that look natural, and if the cavity has already grown too large, we can use inlays or onlays to cover the tooth and protect the root. The results will look natural, so you are the only one who knows it’s there.

Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal treatment is a dental solution to clean tartar from teeth and under gums, and is used to either prevent gum disease or to treat gum disease. We offer a variety of options, depending upon the severity of the situation. Scaling and rooting may be used to clean the teeth before gum disease becomes severe. If gum disease has already become severe, we have several options, and our dentists will make a full diagnosis to help determine which solution is best for you.

Emergency Dentistry

Emergencies happen, even in dentistry. Accidents may knock a tooth out, or patients may wake in the night with a severe toothache. We offer same-day appointments to help patients in distress. If you need emergency dentistry, call our office right away and let the receptionist know it’s an emergency. We will schedule you as soon as possible, and you will be given instructions on what to do while waiting for your appointment.

Comprehensive Examination and Dental Hygiene

Regular dental checkups are part of overall oral health care, but comprehensive examinations are performed less regularly, in which the dentist gather more information. We may take x-rays, digital photos, perform an oral cancer screening and check your jaw. This is the ideal time to discuss your oral health goals with the dentist and even create a plan of action to reach them.

The checkup will be followed by professional teeth cleaning, which is the cornerstone of prevention. Having a professional clean and polish your teeth can remove plaque and tartar before they cause tooth decay, infection, and gum disease. Patients love this service to help them properly care for their teeth and ward of future dental problems.

Dr James is an awesome dentist, I’ve had my pearly whites looked after by him for as long as I can remember and cannot fault his services. From cleaning to general filling, root canals and mouth guards, he does an excellent job. He is always mindful of your comfort and his staff are excellent too. Never had to do any rework because his work is top-notched. Thanks, James!
