General dentistry includes a little bit of everything, as far as your dental health goes. The bulk of the work that general dentists do are restorative treatment, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, and removable restorative treatments such as dentures, partials. This includes root canals. One of the reasons I chose to practice as a general practitioner is because you get to do a little bit of everything. You don’t really get bored with your schedule because there’s a mix of everything coming in. This way, the patient does get that comprehensive treatment that they seek. We provide all of that at our office.
I think one of the reasons patients choose our office for general dentistry treatment over other offices is because we are able to provide all the treatment that general dentistry encompasses. We have, we work with multiple specialists that come into our office, to make sure that we have a very well-rounded treatment plan. That includes working with Dr. Martins to do some perio treatment. That also includes having an endodontist come in to take care of any needs that we would typically need to refer patients out to, but we are able to bring somebody else in and make sure that the patient is comfortable and doesn’t feel like they’re being shifted around from place to place.

An Ounce of Dental Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure
Taking care of your teeth is a lot like taking care of your car. You can regularly spend small amounts of time and money to keep them in great shape, or you can skip the routine maintenance and hope to somehow avoid complicated and costly problems. Our dentists would rather help you proactively avoid trouble than fix dental damage. When you come in for a dental exam, we may suggest a fluoride treatment to help prevent cavities. In fact, all new patients get a free application of fluoride. It strengthens your teeth, makes them less susceptible to heat and cold, and, most important, makes them more resistant to decay. In addition, we sometimes use dental sealants for added protection, especially in tough-to-clean areas like back teeth.
Get Gum Disease Treatment From a Specialist
Dr. Valerie Martins is a board-certified periodontist. After getting her DMD, she received several additional years of training focused on preventing and treating gum (periodontal) disease. She uses a special deep-cleaning process called scaling and root planing that removes damaging plaque and tartar from below your gumline. She can also perform gum grafts and other surgical procedures to reverse damage caused by advanced gum disease. Gum disease, not decay, is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and she works hard to help patients keep their teeth.
