General dentistry is the foundation on which we built our dental practice. It includes all the types of dentistry usually required to help keep the families in our Murfreesboro community healthy!
Sometimes referred to as family dentistry, general dentistry includes all aspects of achieving and maintaining optimum oral health.
A Focus on Preventive Dentistry
The best dentistry is the dentistry we prevent by helping you take excellent care of your teeth, gums, and smile!
Preventive dentistry includes:
- Dental exams
- Professional cleanings
- Digital dental x-rays
- Dental sealants
- Fluoride treatments
- Athletic mouthguards
All these services provide you and your family the very best chance of keeping your natural teeth for a lifetime. When we can minimize the dentistry you need through effective prevention, we know that we are providing a necessary and quality service to our community.
Esthetic Restorative Dentistry
Our teeth have a tough job. It is no surprise that they need the occasional repair!
The enamel protecting your teeth is strong, but not indestructible. We are here to repair your natural teeth whenever possible. Repairing, instead of removing, your natural teeth is usually the best way to protect your oral health and appearance.
Even the most common dentistry can be a work of art. We design natural, tooth-colored restorations to blend in with your smile and create a seamless appearance.
The restorations we offer include:
Inlays and onlays are a cross between a dental filling and a crown. They provide more protection than a filling without the need to remove significant portions of your healthy tooth structure.
While dental restorations come in a wide variety of materials, we strive to create them to match your natural teeth when possible.
Missing teeth can cause you to have negative feelings about your smile, and they can also put your oral health at risk. Missing teeth destroy the relationship between your teeth and jawbone, causing the bone beneath your missing tooth to recede in a process called resorption.
Dental implants are the best way to stop this change to your bone structure. They recreate the relationship between your jawbone and the titanium dental implant post and fully integrate with your natural bone, stimulating regeneration.
For patients who do not want dental implants or need an alternative because of health limitations, we also offer highly esthetic fixed dental bridges, partial dentures, and complete dentures so you can still eat the foods you love and smile confidently.
