General and Family Dentistry
General and family dentistry focuses on preventative care and treatment of dental issues for patients of all ages. From routine cleanings to restorative procedures, a broad and family dentist provides a wide range of services to keep your teeth and gums healthy. When it comes to maintaining good oral health, regular dental check-ups are essential.
The trained team at Castle Valley Dental of Castle Rock, CO, proudly offers premium dental services, providing the entire family with routine and specialized services for your dental needs.
Preventative care is the foundation of general and family dentistry. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are crucial in maintaining good oral health. During a check-up, a dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, looking for any signs of decay or disease. They may also take x-rays to examine your teeth and bone structure closely.
Regular cleanings are essential in removing plaque and tartar buildup that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. A dental hygienist will use specialized tools to remove buildup and polish your teeth to a sparkling shine.
Other preventative services that a general and family dentist may provide include:
- Fluoride treatments to strengthen teeth
- Sealants to protect teeth from decay
- Oral cancer screenings
Even with proper preventative care, dental issues can still arise. A general and family dentist can provide a range of therapeutic procedures to address these issues and restore your smile. Some typical restorative procedures include:
- Fillings to repair cavities
- Crowns to cover and protect damaged teeth
- Bridges to replace missing teeth
- Dentures to replace multiple missing teeth
- Root canals to treat infections such as tooth rot
- Tooth extractions
In addition to preventative and restorative procedures, a general and family dentist may also provide cosmetic services to enhance the appearance of your smile. These services can include:
- Teeth whitening to brighten discolored or stained teeth
- Veneers to improve the shape and color of your teeth
- Invisalign to straighten misaligned teeth without traditional braces
While general and family dentistry is all-encompassing, the most common services available will fall within these categories. If our patients ever need specialized services, we have the capability and network to solve any issue.
