The Brady Dental Group practices general dentistry in order to meet all of your dental needs. Good dental health contributes to your overall physical condition. In order to help you maintain your dental and physical health, the dentists of Brady Dental Group are dedicated to caring for you.
General dentistry includes a wide range of services that contribute to your dental health. First and foremost, general dentists focus on preventative care. The goal is to keep your mouth healthy by stopping disease before it takes hold. The cornerstones of preventative care are regular exams and cleanings. During a cleaning, your hygienist will remove build up from your teeth, then floss and polish your teeth. Regular exams include the process of x-rays and meeting with your hygienist and dentist. After a cleaning, your dentist may offer detailed instructions to improve or correct your oral care habits. Other preventative treatments may also be suggested, such as sealants and treatment for tooth sensitivity. Patients with an active lifestyle can also be fitted for custom mouthguards for sports during a preventative dental appointment.
If a problem is noted during a routine dental appointment, your dentist will offer restorative dental services. Regular preventative appointments mean that problems can be detected in a timely manner allowing for quick and appropriate treatment. The most common restorative service is a cavity filling. The dentist will remove tooth decay and place a filling in the empty area. Restorative dental services also include the treatment of broken, loosened, or knocked-out teeth that may result from dental trauma. Gum disease and tooth pain are also diagnosed and treated. In some cases, missing teeth, crowns, bridgework, and dentures can be effectively treated by your general dentist. Patients experiencing jaw pain or teeth grinding can also receive care during a restorative visit. They may be fitted with appropriate mouthguards to lessen their discomfort.
General dentists can also offer cosmetic procedures. Fillings and crowns can fall into this category depending on which teeth are affected. Your dentist can enhance your smile with teeth whitening treatments, cosmetic bonding, and porcelain veneers. Simply talk with your dentist during your visit to see what services they offer.
Remember, your dental health and overall physical health are connected. Some dental issues can be reflective of issues in other parts of your body. Untreated oral infections can affect diabetes, increase cardiovascular disease, or cause problems during pregnancy. Your dentist is trained to identify these issues and offer treatment or referrals when needed. In addition to treating your teeth, your general dentist will give nutritional advice and advice on general health and wellness.
