General Dentistry: Treating The Most Common Oral Health Issues

Our oral landscape can be seen as a garden or a battlefield. A garden because our teeth and gums require constant care and attention in order to be as healthy as possible. A battlefield because of all the bacteria and threats our teeth face on a daily basis. Regardless of which metaphor you ascribe to, one thing remains true: oral health is an unquestionable necessity. The first line of defense against oral health threats manifests as general dentistry. This umbrella term describes a variety of general oral health services. Dentures, fillings, and extractions are some of common examples of general dentistry.

How General Dentistry Helps Patients Restore Their Oral Landscape

General dentistry spans a variety of issues and degrees of severity. Crowns can be seen as the most basic form of general dentistry as they can be used to protect weak teeth from fracturing or for covering discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Crowns are generally used to cover (or “cap”) existing teeth in order to save the teeth from further damage. Dental fillings can also be seen as more basic forms of general dentistry. When a tooth is damaged or decaying, its normal function can be restored with the assistance of dental fillings. These fillings do exactly what their name suggest, they fill the tooth in order for its original shape and strength to be restored. Since there are many filling options available, Nucleo Dental will be able to assist you with the perfect choice for your particular situation.

Facing More Severe Issues

If the oral health issue becomes more severe, other services may be required. When a tooth faces extensive decay or fractures, fillings or crowns may not be able to provide necessary aid. In these instances, it will become necessary to remove the tooth in question. This takes places through a process known as “extraction.”

Whether you’ve lost teeth due to age, hereditary disease, or any other issue, Nucleo Dental will be able to restore your oral landscape with general dentistry assistance. Dentures and prosthesis are common options for individuals who are missing one or many teeth. With these options, you’ll be able to speak and eat comfortably without struggling.
