You may think that regular visits to a general family dentistry practice are just about dental cleanings, but there’s a lot more to your oral health than that. Regular dental exams and other general dental care treatments can help keep your smile healthy and allow you to avoid some of the most common problems. We use modern dental care technology at our Smithfield, RI general family dentistry office to make sure you get the level of thorough care that leads to healthy smiles.
As family dentists, Drs. Phillip and Gregory Barner focus on preventing problems like gum disease and tooth decay. That’s why it’s so important that you regularly visit our office. You may brush and floss your teeth regularly and eat a balanced diet, but general family dentistry treatments strengthen the barrier between you and oral disease. During dental exams, we’ll use digital X-rays, digital panorex images, and DIAGNOdent technology to show you where your problem spots lie, allowing us to better target your treatment at prevention.
Preventive general family dentistry techniques include fluoride treatments and dental sealants, both of which can reduce your risk of cavities. To make the most of our various preventive dental treatments, we recommend that you come see us at least twice a year. If we find certain types of oral health problems, we may recommend more frequent trips. These regular visits will go a long way toward keeping you from needing more extensive work in the future.
