General dentistry prevents, evaluates, diagnoses, and treats conditions affecting the oral and maxillofacial areas. Most of general dentistry aims at maintaining your oral health at a level that prevents dental issues from occurring. However, general dental services can also be aimed at restorative measures that repair teeth after damage or decay. At Advanced Dental Care of Englewood, we recommend visiting our office twice a year for a general dental check up so that we can help you maintain your oral health and correct issues before they have a chance to escalate.

What should I expect from general dentistry services?
General dental services are aimed at evaluating your teeth to prevent dental issues from occurring. Your general dental appointment will begin with Dr. Miksa examining your teeth, gums, and overall bite. She may also take x-rays as a preventative measure. After your examination, she will discuss her findings and answer any questions you may have. Your appointment will conclude with a teeth cleaning.

Depending on the nature of these treatments, they may be carried out during your appointment or rescheduled for another time.
