The practice of general dentistry is the most commonly practiced form of dentistry and it is founded on the practice of restorative services and preventative services to achieve great oral health. Ferguson Dental Group comprises four dentists who specialize in general dentistry. We are here to diagnose and treat the overall oral health needs of our patients, no matter what the case is. Get in touch with us today to schedule your annual dental checkup!
Restorative services are aimed at bringing your teeth back to their optimal condition. This may mean that you have experienced damage, trauma, or decay to your teeth and/or gums, and you will need them to be brought back into its original shape. The services of restorative dentistry can include endodontics, periodontics, and prosthodontics. Some of the treatments that might be offered in restorative care can include:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Root canal therapy
- Porcelain crowns
- Fixed bridges
- Inlays and onlays
The adage that “prevention is the best medicine,” is certainly accurate when it comes to dental care. You only have one set of adult teeth to last you the duration of your life. It’s always best to work with your original teeth so that you won’t have to go through the pain, discomfort, and extra expense of having to go through restorative care. Some of the preventative services we offer at Ferguson Dental Group aim to help keep cavities, gum disease, and enamel wear at bay. Proper education about the right kind of dental hygiene is key. Some of the ways we encourage preventative care are:
- Brushing teeth regularly
- Brushing teeth for the correct amount of time
- Flossing daily
- Using mouthwash if necessary
- Coming in for regular screenings
- Having your teeth professionally cleaned at least once a year
If you need additional help with preventative care, come to Ferguson Dental Group and we’ll make sure that you get the information you need to take better care of your teeth at home. There is only so much a trip to the dentist can do; the most important work happens at home.
