General Dentistry

To ensure your oral hygiene and overall health, it is important to regularly schedule visits to your dentist. Detecting oral health issues early on can prevent serious conditions such as gingivitis, periodontitis, gum recession, or TMJ. It is important to have the right general dentistry services from someone who has years of experience and expertise.

Dr. Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox and her staff provide the following general dentistry services.

General Dentistry Services:

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is essential for keeping you safe from dental problems that might worsen if not treated early on. With regular checkups and good dental hygiene, you can easily reduce the risk of getting dental problems, drastically improve and safeguard your oral health, and prevent oral diseases. Trust our team of highly dedicated and experienced dental staff to take good care of your teeth so that they last a lifetime.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

The lack of proper oral hygiene routine and the inability of your toothbrush to effectively clean the back teeth in your mouth are the top two reasons we recommend professional teeth cleaning. Opting out of this procedure will lead to food particles and plaque accumulating in your mouth. These turn into tartar, wreaking havoc on your teeth and gums and putting them at the risk of severe tooth decay, cavities, gum disease and tooth loss.

Professional teeth cleaning is carried out by our team using special equipment that easily reach where your toothbrush cannot. However, you need to be consistent and visit us regularly (2-4 times a year) to ensure the beauty and health of your smile. For more information on professional tooth cleaning, click here.

Tooth Extractions

Whether your tooth is too decayed or damaged to be salvaged or your wisdom tooth is preventing you from carrying out your daily routine, tooth extraction may be your best option. Dr. Fox and staff will carry out this procedure while ensuring minimal to no pain or discomfort. We offer a range of sedatives and anesthetics to ease patients during the treatment that suits every patient, especially those who tend to grow anxious or scared while undergoing treatments.

Snore Guards

Snoring is an embarrassing habit that can affect your health as it disrupts your sleep at night and causes drowsiness and mood swings during the day. At our dental office, we can help you avoid the risks of snoring by prescribing special snore guards. These push your lower jaw forward to clear the airways and help you breathe easily as you sleep.

TMJ and Bruxism Therapy

Bruxism is a condition that entails involuntary grinding of teeth. Though it usually occurs during sleep, it can also take place during daytime. It is a serious issue that can lead to Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) if not treated early on. TMJ is a serious joint disorder which can lead to further problems. Read more here.

Regular Dental Checkups

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends scheduling two to four visits a year for routine dental checkups. Abiding by this rule will not only help you keep your teeth clean, it will also allow your dentist to detect and ultimately prevent any oral disease from becoming more serious and too costly to treat. If you need to take some safety measures or make changes to your current oral hygiene routine, Dr. Elizabeth Fox and her dental staff will offer the guidance you need while guaranteeing friendly chairside manners and a comfortable environment where you can be at ease.
