What is general dentistry?
Dr. Yijia Li [Lana Lee] of A & S Dental Wellness Center of Leominster describes general dentistry as preventive and common services used to help patients achieve good oral health and wellness. It often encompasses some of the following services:
- Dental cleanings – while brushing and flossing at home is essential to keeping the smile healthy, patients should also book routine dental cleanings at A & S Dental Wellness Center of Leominster. Our team can remove plaque, tartar, and calculus to keep the smile healthy and clean.
- Dental evaluations: Every six months, patients should visit their dentist for an evaluation to ensure the smile is healthy. Early detection and treatment of periodontal disease and tooth decay can help ensure your oral health is maintained.
- Dental fillings – areas of decay are treated with dental fillings. The dental fillings are made of a composite resin and match the natural color of teeth enamel for discreet results.
- Dental crowns – patients with weak or damaged teeth may need to have dental crowns placed over their natural teeth. This assures that the tooth is protected and strengthened to function at its best.
- X-rays – diagnostic x-rays are used to view underneath the gum line and evaluate the teeth’ unexposed parts and the jawbone.
- Periodontal therapy – patients who have conditions such as periodontal disease will need to undergo periodontal therapy to treat the infection and help bring the smile back to health. Periodontal disease left untreated can result in irreversible damage to the gums, bones, and teeth.
