General Dentistry in Columbus, OH
If you think about all your general dentist does for you and your family it isn’t hard to figure out the importance of coming into our office for routine care. In fact, general dentistry is the first line of defense against common dental issues like decay and gum disease. By coming in to see us every six months for exams and cleanings we are able to detecting problems during their earliest stages when it’s easier to treat.
These routine oral exams may not seem very important. In fact, if you aren’t experiencing any dental issues or symptoms then everything must be fine, right? Well actually, many times people with dental problems don’t often experience any symptoms, so the only way we actually know there is an issue is with these preventive cleanings and checkups.
A general dentist also gets to know the growing needs of every member of your family. We check off important dental milestones for your children, provide orthodontic treatments that cater to any member of the family, remove plaque and tartar buildup to prevent cavities and gum disease and also educate our patients on the importance of at-home oral care.

When to Visit the Dentist
Many people only go to the dentist when something is wrong. That is truly a shame, because they are missing out on so many preventive services that can save discomfort — and expense — down the road. Regular dental visits are essential to make sure oral health problems — from tooth decay to oral cancer — are detected and treated in a timely manner. Some individuals may need to see the dentist more often than others to stay on top of problems like plaque buildup and gum disease, but everyone should go at least once per year. Your regular dental visits will include a thorough oral exam to check the health of your teeth and gums; and oral cancer screening to spot any suspicious signs early; and a professional cleaning to remove stubborn deposits and make your teeth look and feel great. So don't miss out on the many benefits dentistry offers you and your family!
