General dentistry might also be known as foundational dentistry, because it’s the foundation of everything we do in dentistry. If you want a beautiful smile, and you want it to last, then you have to focus on maintaining the health of your smile.
In other dental practices, you might also call this everyday dentistry, but at Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake, all the dentistry we provide is extraordinary—there’s nothing everyday about it. All the dental procedures we provide are informed by cosmetic dentistry and neuromuscular dentistry principles that help us to do everything beautifully, and in a way that ensures you have a healthy, comfortable bite.
Whether you’re looking for basic cleanings or a complete smile makeover, Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake offers you a dental home that can meet all your family’s dental needs.
Importance of General Dentistry
You’ve no doubt heard that having your teeth cleaned and examined by a dentist is a necessary part of your oral hygiene routine, but you may not know why. A clean, healthy mouth has been conclusively linked to systemic health. When bacteria accumulate in your mouth, they can use that as a base from which to colonize the rest of your body, leading to serious illnesses. They can move to your lungs, causing pneumonia. They can move to your heart, causing heart disease such as endocarditis and coronary artery disease. And they can move into your sinuses, then your brain, causing an acute infection and death.
Your at-home dental hygiene routine is important for daily maintenance, but a professional cleaning by one of our experienced dentists can remove all of the plaque and buildup your daily routine misses.
The focus of general dentistry is preventative, but prevention may not always be possible. In addition to professional cleanings, your biannual visits to our office will include a thorough external and internal examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. In this way we can detect tooth decay as well as early warning signs of gum disease, oral cancers, and disorders such as TMD. When detected early, our general dentists can often provide treatment to that will minimize the systemic consequences of these disorders.
Both Dr. George Sepiashvili and Dr. Wanda Mejia have years of experience helping New York families prevent and treat common general dental problems. In addition, both of our dentists have been educated at the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and are able to approach each smile with the eyes of an artist. In this way, we can provide you with exceptional general dental services while paying close attention to aesthetic results for a smile that is functional, clean, and beautiful.
