Protect Your Teeth & Gums with General Dental Care

At Oasis Dental, we offer you and your family many types of general dentistry to keep your smiles looking great for a lifetime. We want each patient to take pride in their smile and be willing to show it off comfortably at all times. The services we use to make sure this happens include:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – When you come in for your checkup, we’ll not only give your teeth a thorough cleaning and polishing, we’ll also perform a complete dental examination. Our skilled team is trained to look for signs of bite problems, decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other issues, and we’ll make recommendations as needed for additional treatment.
  • Preventive Treatments – With preventive treatments, we can help keep your teeth healthy and your smile in good shape. We often recommend fluoride treatments and varnishes, as fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Dental sealants are another beneficial treatment that form a protective barrier against disease-causing bacteria.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – If we detect any sign of gum disease, we can use one or both of two effective treatments. First, we may “deep clean” your gums with scaling and root planing. Second, we can use a gentle laser to remove damaged gum tissue and help your gums heal.
  • Custom Mouthguards – Our team can make you a custom-fit mouthguard to protect your or your child’s mouth during sporting activities. We can also have a specialty mouthguard made that will eliminate teeth grinding, help reduce TMJ pain, or help reduce the symptoms of sleep apnea.
  • Dry Mouth and Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – If you’re tired of dealing with either of these chronic problems, our team can recommend specialty products to help you manage them and be more comfortable.

We never want money to stand between you and great oral health, which is why we developed our Oasis Dental Wellness Plan that includes discounts on various treatments so you can find affordable care, even without dental insurance.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What does general dentistry include?

General dentistry includes several beneficial treatments that are designed to help you maintain an attractive smile and good oral health. Among these services are dental cleanings and exams, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, gum disease treatment, and treatment for chronic problems like dry mouth and halitosis (bad breath). Routine general dentistry will help keep your smile in the best shape possible.

How long is general dentistry school?

To become a general dentist, a person must first complete four years of undergraduate education at a college or university, then they will complete another four years of dental school. In addition, to maintain their license to practice and stay up to date, a dentist must complete a certain number of continuing education courses each year.

Can specialists practice general dentistry?

In theory, any dental specialist could practice general dentistry. However, most specialists prefer to focus their work in their chosen specialty, else they wouldn’t have pursued the additional education and training necessary to become a specialist. Therefore, for your general dentistry needs, you’ll receive the best care from a general dentist because they are used to addressing a wide variety of dental problems every day.

Can I prevent cavities?

Good oral hygiene and regular care from a general dentist go a long way toward preventing cavities. Brush at least twice a day with a toothpaste that contains fluoride, and see us every six months for an exam and cleaning. It’s also a good idea to limit your consumption of sugary or highly acidic foods ad drinks. For added protection against cavities, ask your dental team about treatment with fluoride and/or dental sealants.

How can you treat dry mouth at home?

Depending on the cause of your dry mouth, you can take successful steps to remedy the condition. It may be as simple as drinking more water to keep you well hydrated. We can also recommend specialty products you can use at home to help keep your mouth moist so you feel more comfortable.
