Our Comfort First Dentistry practices will ensure that every patient feels safe and during their visits.
The Importance of General Dentistry
General dentistry encompasses all the procedures and treatments patient’s need to maintain their teeth and gums. At Soundview Family Dental, we have complete dental care solutions that can correct many of the common problems patients have, including cavities, tartar buildup, teeth grinding, and many more.
The American Dental Association recommends that individuals, regardless of age, should be visiting their dentist twice a year. Cleanings and exams will be performed every six months, while x-rays should be taken once a year. Having x-rays done is essential to your oral health and identify any problems early on. If any changes occur from the last time you’ve had your yearly x-rays, our dentists, Dr. Kitts, and Dr. Hewett can address these issues and develop a treatment plan to correct. By repairing a problem sooner, patients can prevent more significant dental problems from happening, which may require more extensive treatments.
Teeth cleanings are where every patient should start on the road to a healthy smile. Professional teeth cleanings go far beyond what individuals can do at home.
Our dentists will remove all traces of tartar buildup on the visible areas of the tooth as well as below the gum line. Tartar buildup can cause tooth decay. Tartar can also contribute to gingivitis or to more advanced periodontal disease.
For patients that have cavities, or tooth decay, fillings are the solution. At Soundview Family Dental, we are proud to provide tooth-colored fillings in our Edmonds office.
This filling material blends with the natural appearance of the tooth and
Oral Cancer Screenings
When diagnosed early, oral cancer is highly treatable. We perform an oral cancer screening during your routine visit. There are no extra steps to screening for oral cancer, aside from a physical exam. If our dentists notice any signs of mouth or throat cancer, we will recommend a follow-up visit for additional testing.
Oral cancer, if not detected early, can have serious risks. Those that are smokers or drink alcoholic beverages and those that have prolonged sun exposure are more at risk for developing cancer.
Teeth grinding, or bruxism is a common problem for many. However, it is treatable, and damage to the teeth can be prevented with custom made mouth guards.
Soundview Family Dental can create a mouth guard specially designed for you, to ensure proper fit and maximum protection to your teeth from grinding. Mouth guards can also be worn for sports as another form of protection against damage or injury.
When a cavity goes untreated for too long, it can expose the tooth root and have the potential for infection. When this happens, the most common problem is sensitivity and pain. With a root canal, we can save your natural tooth, while eliminating the pain that occurs with an exposed tooth root.
Our dentists will clean out the area thoroughly, removing any decay and the root. The cavity is then filled, or a crown can be placed to restore the condition of the tooth.
Not only do we provide cleanings, exams, and root canals, but we also offer advice for your at-home care.
Our dentists can answer any questions you have, including how to brush effectively, what are some excellent flossing techniques, and many more.
Delaying Cleanings and Exams Can Lead to Larger Problems
Sometimes, life gets a little chaotic. Between managing your home and work life, it can be challenging to find time to visit the dentist. However, delaying regular cleanings and exams can lead to more extensive problems with your oral health. Cavities, when left untreated, can corrupt the entire tooth, and eventually lead to tooth loss. With routine visits to our office, we can pinpoint any problems and quickly correct them.
Protect Your Teeth with Our General Dentistry Services
For most patients, their oral health goal is to maintain healthy teeth and gums. With general dentistry, you are giving your mouth the attention it deserves and ultimately helping to prevent significant issues, including gum disease and tooth decay.
Cleanings are a fundamental part of proper dental care. Professional cleanings will remove plaque and tartar from places you just can’t reach on your own. And tartar, once present, is impossible to remove on your own. Tartar is the leading contributor to gum disease and tooth decay
