The area of general dentistry focuses on ensuring that you have optimal oral health and dental hygiene so that the teeth are protected from issues such as cavities and decay. General dentistry covers a wide variety of treatments to prevent and repair problems such as oral disease, trauma, tooth decay or defects. Along with great home care, regular dental checkups and professional dental cleanings are the best way to ensure that your teeth and mouth remain healthy and free of problems. Untreated oral health issues can create complications in the future, so it is best to avoid them or treat them in a timely manner to prevent the development of more serious issues.
At the office of Glenwood Dental Care, we offer a wide array of general dental care services including:
