General DentistryOur Sacramento general dentist provides painless procedures for our satisfied patients. The prevention and treatment of oral diseases and irregular teeth are common dentistry procedures. A good oral hygiene schedule can prevent bacterial growth from attaching to the inside of the mouth, teeth, and gum line. Normal brushing and flossing are a daily requirement to aid in the prevention of gingivitis or further oral complications. While these routines decrease dental irregularities, routine dental checkups by our general dentist in Sacramento are still necessary.
Common general dentistry procedures are:
Better known as teeth cleaning, oral prophylaxis is the method used to clean teeth, gum lines, and tooth roots. When not removed daily, bacterial plaque can begin to form on the teeth leading to discoloration and eventual tooth decay. Our dentist safely removes this plaque and bacteria by scraping or scaling each tooth and tooth root.
Our Sacramento general dentist provides treatments for our patients that are necessary for keeping their teeth healthy and in good condition.
Sacramento General DentistRoot Canal
A severely infected tooth can begin to decay rapidly. Bacteria can seep below the gum line and into the tooth root stopping the flow of blood and nutrients of a healthy tooth. To help save the tooth, our Sacramento dentist will perform a root canal procedure removing the bacteria and sealing the tooth with special non-toxic resin. This prevents further tooth damage and seals the tooth from future harmful substances.
A decayed tooth that cannot be saved due to broken, impacted, or misaligned teeth can be safely removed. The extraction process is common and not every tooth can be reshaped, sculptured or saved. Dental extractions are common for patients with severely decayed teeth or loose teeth as direct result of gum disease. Misaligned or crooked teeth can usually be reformed with other dental procedures.
Weakened teeth can develop tiny crevasses that can trap or allow intrusions of bacterial growths or food particles. Teeth can begin to become discolored or decayed due to this bacterial growth depressed inside. Our general dentist applies powerful sealants to seal the crevasses in teeth preventing further decay and future contamination.
Patients rely on our dentist in Sacramento to perform accurate general dentistry procedures daily.
