General Dentistry Q&A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry provides comprehensive oral health care to people of all ages. It diagnoses and treats common problems like tooth decay and gum disease, uses preventive screening measures like oral exams and X-rays to detect potentially serious issues early on, and presents an opportunity to build a relationship with your dentist.

What services does general dentistry provide?

At Moderna Dental Studio, the team offers a variety of general dentistry services, including:

Oral exams

An oral exam is a routine checkup that assesses your oral health. During an exam, your dentist uses a mirror to observe your teeth, gums, and tongue. If they notice anything unusual, like a cavity or inflammation of the gums, they can order additional testing and analysis. 

Professional teeth cleaning

During professional teeth cleaning, your dentist removes plaque from between your teeth and beneath your gums. Afterward, they polish your teeth with gritty toothpaste, floss your teeth, and apply a fluoride treatment, if prescribed.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays use low amounts of radiation to provide detailed images of your tooth roots, gums, and jaw. X-rays can detect potentially serious oral health problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye. They also help guide the placement of dental implants and other oral restorations.

Dental restorations

Dental restorations repair damaged, missing, or decaying teeth. Some of the most common restorations include dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures. Following an oral exam, the team at Moderna Dental Studio can make recommendations that align with your dental history and needs.

Orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatment uses custom oral appliances to gradually align your teeth and jaw. At Moderna Dental Studio, the team uses Invisalign®, an advanced orthodontic treatment system that uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets and archwires.

How often do I need a general dentistry appointment?

The team at Moderna Dental Studio recommends you come in for general dentistry twice a year. That rule applies, even if your teeth and gums appear healthy. Regular checkups can alert you to potentially serious issues, like cavities or gum disease, when they respond best to treatment.

The team is in-network with most major insurance carriers and provides the luxuries of a modern dental practice to ensure comfort and quality care.
