General Dentistry

A general or family dentist will help you take care of your oral health as well as detect and treat any issues that may occur. General dentists will also work alongside specialists such as periodontists and orthodontists to promote good oral health.

The goal of preventive dentistry is to help a patient avoid any dental problems by ensuring proper cleaning and maintenance.

If there is a minor problem, the objective will be to fix it quickly to avoid the issue from escalating into a more severe condition.

Minor dental problems can easily turn into major problems if you do not resolve them early on. For example, an infection can spread, a gap can cause bone loss in your jaw and misaligned teeth will only get worse with age and are harder to keep clean.

Hygiene cleans are a painless dental service where a dental hygienist professionally cleans your teeth and gums.

The hygienist first checks your mouth for infections or inflammations to make sure you are ok to clean.

Then, we proceed to scaling or removing plaque and tartar from your teeth’s surfaces and gaps and near the gumline using a manual scaler (small hook) or an ultrasonic scaler.

The ultrasonic scaler uses gentle vibration and water to remove significant amounts of plaque and tartar.

Then the hygienist will proceed to flossing, polishing, and fluoride application.

Composite fillings are done when your tooth has a damaged or infected portion, but the dentist can still save a significant area of it.

You need it if you can see damage and decay on your teeth or feel some sensitivity, pain, or discomfort.

During a check-up, we will be able to find out if you need it or not. If so, we will schedule a session or multiple ones if you have more than one affected tooth that needs fillings.

Gum disease is the top reason for losing teeth, and most people get by not knowing that they have it and will only be concerned when they see bleeding.

It would be best to protect your gums from disease, but we can cure it for you if you suffer gum loss or infections.

We do scaling and root planing, which is to meticulously clean the roots, removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria. This is usually followed by weeks of taking antibiotics to eliminate further infection.

We do tray delivery systems, implants, regeneration, soft tissue grafting, gingivectomy, or gingival sculpting.

Holford Partners Curaden is the best place to get affordable yet effective treatments if you have any gum problems.

FAQs

What can I do to deal with a toothache?

When you have a throbbing and painful toothache, it could indicate a few issues. You either have an injured or infected tooth and in most cases, you could have a cavity or abscess that needs treatment.

What you need to do is book an emergency appointment with the dentist. Tell your dentist everything you feel and what you think might have caused the problem.

If it takes some waiting time before your scheduled appointment and you want some comfort, you can opt to use anti-inflammatory medicine for some relief. Do this only if you are sure you have no liver problems or allergies to the drugs.

The most common options are naproxen, mefenamic acid, or ibuprofen.

If you refuse to take medicine without advice, it is okay. You can apply a cold compress and gargle with salt water to level down the pain.

When your appointment comes, your dentist will check your teeth and pinpoint your problem. Afterwhich, you are recommended either extraction, root canal, or composite fillings.

Is preventive dentistry expensive?

No. In fact, it is a money saver.

Whatever you are paying a quality practice twice a year for regular visits and cleaning are the cheapest dental service you get. When you go for cheaper, inexperienced dentists, you might not have the best preventions and you could acquire dental issues that would cost you a significant premium.
