General dentistry is dental care that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide variety of dental conditions. At Jeanne V. Devi DDS, you’ll find that we offer a wide range of general dentistry services. In fact, general dentistry is the foundation of oral health and your first line of defense against common dental problems.
Here are the services we offer:
Our dentist and dental team will thoroughly clean and inspect your teeth at each of your appointments. This helps us catch any problems early and treat them before they become serious.
Teeth cleanings remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, which can help prevent gum recession, tooth decay, and other oral health problems.
Dental sealants are a preventive option that can be applied as soon as a child’s back teeth come in. They are a safe and effective way to keep teeth healthy, as they create an invisible barrier over the back teeth and prevent food particles from finding their way between the teeth.
A tooth-colored filling is a type of metal-free filling that can be used to restore your teeth after decay. Often, these fillings are made out of composite resin, which is putty-like in consistency. This composite resin can be tinted to match the color of your teeth so that it blends in. They are a great option because they are discreet and can match your teeth. Tooth-colored fillings can also be used to fill small cavities and repair any instances of decay.
Crowns (or caps) are coverings that are made to replace one or many teeth. They are bonded to the remaining tooth structure to make your smile look complete again.
When a tooth has a large cavity or is fractured, a crown may need to be placed. These crowns, also called caps, cover the tooth and restore it to its original size and shape.
If you’ve lost a tooth to decay or injury, a dental bridge can restore your smile and your oral health. A dental bridge is a dental restoration that consists of an artificial tooth (or teeth), which is supported by anchoring crowns on natural teeth. The anchoring teeth are often called abutment teeth. The dental bridge restores both the function and appearance of the tooth.
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is needed when the dental pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The pulp is a soft area inside a tooth that contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected, it cannot repair itself on its own and must be removed.
A root canal can effectively save a tooth that otherwise would need to be pulled. After the procedure, the tooth will be capped with a crown.
