What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry includes the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of your overall oral health. At our Southfield dental office, our general dentistry services will keep your smile healthy and ward off common problems including tooth decay, gum disease, and more. We recommend visiting our dental office at least twice a year for a thorough teeth cleaning and examination.

Our General Dentistry Services

Teeth Cleanings & Exams

Regular teeth cleanings and exams are fundamental for maintaining great oral health and a beautiful smile. Once every six months, our talented dental hygienists will give you a thorough teeth cleaning to rid your mouth of any built-up plaque and tartar. We’ll also check your teeth, gums, and cheeks for any signs of underlying oral health conditions. If we detect signs of disease, Dr. Daniels-Dixon will create a customized treatment plan and keep you informed every step of the way. 

Scheduling regular dental cleanings is important for protecting those hard-to-reach areas that are easy to miss at home. Our trained hygienists will use special dental tools to clean your teeth and gums completely, ensuring that your mouth is free of bacteria. Oftentimes, these cleanings are enough to reverse the effects of tooth decay and gum disease. 

Digital X-Rays

Once a year, our dental team at Dixon Family Dental will take digital X-rays to capture more detailed images of your oral structures. With digital X-rays, Dr. Daniels-Dixon can spot any areas of concern, often before you even experience symptoms. Best of all, digital dental X-rays emit 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays. 

Periodontal Treatment

As the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, periodontal disease can greatly affect your oral health. During your routine appointment, one of our Southfield team members will examine your gums for any signs of periodontal disease. 

Our expert team can detect even the most subtle cases of gum disease. We offer effective periodontal treatments to ensure your oral health can get back on track. If you feel you may be suffering from gum disease, these are the most common symptoms to look out for:

  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Swollen, tender, and bleeding gums
  • Widening gaps between teeth
  • Lengthened teeth or receding gums
  • Persistent bad breath

Dental Sealants

If your child is prone to cavities, dental sealants can help protect their teeth from unwanted bacteria. Dental sealants are applied to the back molars, creating a protective barrier between the teeth and bacteria to prevent tooth decay. While we typically recommend sealants for children, they can be a great preventive measure for patients of any age. 

Oral Cancer Screenings

An oral cancer screening is a diagnostic measure that’s performed yearly to check for any signs of oral cancer. This quick and simple examination is done by Dr. Daniels-Dixon and can be completed at your routine visits. She’ll check your head, mouth, gums, teeth, and neck to ensure you’re free of any symptoms related to oral cancer. When caught early on, oral cancer is a highly treatable disease. 

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments are an additional way to protect your teeth against bacteria and decay. These treatments work by remineralizing your tooth’s enamel that’s been broken down by plaque buildup over time. Our fluoride treatments are a highly concentrated solution that’s applied with a swab, tray, or mouthwash at the end of your routine tooth cleaning.
