The Importance of General Dentistry

While the services and procedures are widely varied, the goals of general dentistry are always the same: to keep your natural teeth strong and healthy for as long as possible, to ensure your complete oral health, and to keep you and your smile looking and feeling great for the rest of your life. Dentistry is about more than just keeping your teeth clean - it's about keeping your whole body healthy.

We're proud to offer cleanings, implants, and other services at our office, but what you do at home is just as important: a robust, consistent oral hygiene regimen of brushing and flossing is paramount to a healthy smile. Starting these habits early and continuing them throughout your life will help ensure that you have a healthy, beautiful smile your whole life long.

When to Visit Your Dentist

Dental appointment.Unfortunately, many people see the dentist as someone to go to only when something's going wrong - but this is the complete wrong approach! A dental appointment should help prevent problems, not simply fix them when they appear. Regular dental visits and cleanings are a vital part of maintaining a healthy smile, and they're critical for stopping problems early and preventing costly and uncomfortable restorative procedures later on. For most patients, we recommend visiting us at least once a year, although more frequent visits may be needed if you have a specific condition we're tracking. Dr. Arbutante will work with you to determine how often you should come and see us. 

A routine visit will have a few components to it. First, we'll give you a thorough oral examination to check up on your teeth and gums and watch for any conditions or problems. Next, you'll receive an oral cancer screening to detect any suspicious spots or signs as early as possible. Finally, you'll get a professional, comprehensive tooth cleaning to take off any stubborn deposits, stains, and plaque, leaving your teeth clean, healthy, and gorgeous!
