What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry is the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of common dental problems. This includes routine dental exams, cleanings, fillings, and other procedures to maintain good oral health. We offer a wide range of general dentistry services to meet your needs.

Routine Dental Exams

Regular dental exams are an essential part of maintaining good oral health. Dr. Wallace and her team will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums during your check-up for any signs of decay, disease, or other issues. We may also take X-rays to better look at your mouth’s underlying structures.


In addition to exams, regular cleanings are crucial for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Our dental hygienists use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth and below the gumline. This helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems.


If you have a cavity or tooth decay, we may recommend a filling to restore the damaged tooth. We offer traditional amalgam and tooth-colored composite fillings for a more natural-looking result.


While our goal is always to preserve your natural teeth, there are times when we may need to extract a tooth. This could be due to severe decay, infection, or crowding. Our team will ensure the extraction is as comfortable and painless as possible.

Oral Cancer Screenings

As part of our commitment to your overall health, we can perform regular oral cancer screenings during your dental exam. This involves thoroughly checking your mouth, throat, and neck for any signs of abnormalities or potential cancerous growths. Early detection is key in successfully treating oral cancer.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a common condition affecting the gums and underlying bone. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems. Our team is skilled in diagnosing and treating gum disease at all stages. We offer gentle yet effective treatments such as scaling and root planing to remove plaque and bacteria from the gum pockets.

Root Canal Therapy

We may recommend root canal therapy if you have an infected or damaged tooth nerve. This procedure involves removing the infected tissue, cleaning and shaping the root canals, and sealing them to prevent further infection. With modern techniques and anesthesia options, root canals are now more comfortable.


Personalized Treatment Plans

Our practice believes in treating each patient as an individual with unique dental needs and goals. That’s why we take the time to create personalized treatment plans for every patient. We listen to your concerns and work with you to determine the best course for achieving optimal oral health.
