General Dental Procedures and Family Dentistry in Roseville, CA
Arbor View’s family dentistry in Roseville, CA focuses on providing general dental care to a wide range of patients across all age groups. From tooth filling and cleaning to root canals and tooth extraction, your family dentist works closely with you to provide individualized dental care to each person in your family.
Family dental care is geared towards providing overall care for a wide array of dental needs and issues for patients of all ages, and is usually geared towards making sure that your dental needs can all be taken care of carefully and cleanly without added complications.
Generalized dental care is the blanket term for a large number of dental procedures that can be considered somewhat routine, such as cleanings, fillings, and root canals. Most general dental procedures focus on the upkeep and health of the mouth as a whole, as well as the care of each individual tooth, and often times are more geared towards preventative care. Here are some of the routine dental procedures we perform when you come to Arbor View Dental Care for a visit:
Comprehensive and Routine Exams
We emphasize the preservation of your natural teeth through preventive dental care. If you don’t take care of your teeth you may find yourself spending thousands of dollars in restorative dental care. During your exam we will check for gum recession or inflammation, and may also provide oral cancer tests for patients who are at risk.
Regular and deep teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Our dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits called tartar not removed by routine cleaning.
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.
Permanent molars are the most likely to benefit from sealants. The first molars usually come into the mouth when a child is about 6 years old. Second molars appear at about age 12. It is best if the sealant is applied soon after the teeth have erupted, before they have a chance to decay.
Applying sealants does not require drilling or removing tooth structure. The process is short and easy. After the tooth is cleaned, a special gel is placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds. The tooth is then washed off and dried. Then, the sealant is painted on the tooth. The dentist or dental hygienist also may shine a light on the tooth to help harden the sealant. It takes about a minute for the sealant to form a protective shield.
Periodontal Therapy (aka Perio Therapy) is the diagnosis, treatment and maintenance of chronic inflammatory periodontal disease.If you ever experience bleeding or receding gums, persistent bad breath, or loose teeth, you may already be suffering from the early stages of periodontal disease.
We offer specialized mouthguards for both sports and bruxism (teeth grinding) purposes.
Investing in a custom-formed mouthguard for sports can help prevent serious damage to the teeth and mouth in case of an accident, and can be ordered easily fromour family dental office.
Custom mouth guards for teeth grinding are slightly different than those used for sports, as these are less focused on preventing impact damage, and instead are made to allow a smooth surface for the top back teeth to glide across the bottom molars. This can help reduce the damage done to the back molars in the case of teeth grinding while you sleep.
Tooth Extractions and Root Canals
As a family dentist, we can also provide some in-house dental surgeries so that you can get the highest quality dental care from a team that you can trust. These surgeries include both tooth extractions and root canals. A timely tooth extraction or root canal can help curb infection and ensure that your mouth is as healthy as possible.
