Treatments

General dentistry is the subset of dentistry that focuses primarily on the health of the teeth and mouth rather than the appearance. While these procedures can improve the look of your smile, it is more of a nice side effect than the purpose of the procedure. Below of the general dentistry services offered at Waynesboro Family Dentist.

Exams and X-Rays
Exams and X-Rays

You should see a dentist twice a year for a general dental exam, including x-rays. The goal of these exams is to catch any problems before they get big and to take other measures to prevent problems from developing in the first place. These visits include x-rays, a thorough cleaning, and an examination.

Dental Cleaning
Dental Cleaning

While dental cleanings are part of our routine checkups, we also offer them on their own. These are ideal for special occasions when you need your smile to look polished in person and in photos. This cleaning removes tartar and plaque buildup and makes the teeth look shinier and healthier while actually making them healthier by reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease developing.

Composite Filling
Composite Filling

This is the most common approach to tooth restoration. With a composite filling, we fill the areas of the tooth that have been removed due to tooth decay or damage. We can use these fillings on patients of all ages as long as there is enough of the original tooth left to complete the procedure.

Root Canal
Root Canal

When people experience tooth aches, there are many possible culprits, but the most likely one is an infection in the pulp of the tooth. When this occurs, a root canal is used to relieve the pain and prevent the infection from spreading any further. This procedure removes the infected pulp. We then restore the tooth with a filling, or in the case of more extensive damage, a crown.

Sedation Dentistry

Many people have a fear of the dentist due to personal space issues, poor portrayals in popular culture, or—unfortunately—due to past experiences. For these individuals, dental care is still just as vital as it is for others, but it can be too much to handle for them to simply walk into an office a receive care.
