GORHAM AND PORTLAND, ME GENERAL DENTISTRY FOR A BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY SMILE
The term “general dentistry” incorporates several aspects of dentistry, including diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and disorders of the mouth and teeth. Many people believe dentistry focuses only on a person’s teeth. However, dental professionals also evaluate oral health risks that can influence overall health, such as oral cancer and gum disease assessments that could indicate or put a person at risk for conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, sleep apnea, hypertension, and others.
Dentistry usually involves specific evaluative practices and preventive treatments related to the oral cavity, which includes the teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, throat, and the roof of the mouth. General dentists emphasize proper oral hygiene to prevent oral diseases. Good oral hygiene practices include brushing and flossing daily and regular check-ups with a dental professional such as Dr. Ted Morgan and Dr. Amanda Rockwood at Morgan Dental Care.
Besides performing dental and oral examinations, x-rays, and diagnosis, general dentists offer treatment options for many different kinds of conditions. Some examples include…
- Restorative treatments (fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays and dental veneers)
- Prosthetic options (dentures, partial dentures, dental bridges, dental implants)
- Endodontic therapy (root canals)
- Periodontal therapy (teeth cleaning, root planing, gum treatments)
- Exodontia (extraction of teeth)
- Tooth replacement (single and multiple dental implants, dental bridges)
- Cosmetic treatments (teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental bonding, dental implants, orthodontia)
- Sedation options (conscious sedation, anxiolysis)
