General dentistry is critical to your oral health. The three main components of general dentistry are prevention, diagnosis and treatment of common dental problems. Some of the most common services associated with general dentistry include:
- Regular teeth cleanings
- Regular exams
- Dental fillings
- Children's dentistry
We also offer endodontic services to treat problems arising inside your teeth, as well as periodontics to maintain the health of your gums, jawbone and other tooth-supporting structures.
Visiting the dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning prevents the buildup of plaque, a sticky substance that forms on your teeth when bacteria begin to colonize on the enamel. Plaque can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and it has also been linked to heart disease.
During a dental exam, Dr. Howard Perlmutter can spot early signs of decay, inflammation, and other dental problems. Dental problems are often much easier to treat in the early stages. Progressed decay and infection may require more extensive procedures.
