The area of general dentistry encompasses all those treatments and services that help you achieve and maintain optimum oral health. At the office of All Smiles Bethesda, we offer the following general dental care services:
- Crowns and Bridges: Crowns and bridges can be used to restore and replace damaged and missing teeth.
- Dentures: Dentures are fixed or removable dental appliances that are used to restore your smile by replacing missing teeth. We offer full as well as partial dentures for replacement of missing teeth. We also offer fixed dentures supported by implants to help those who desire a more stable and permanent solution.
- Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are dental restorations which are used for the repair of teeth with mild to moderate decay and damage, or teeth that are cracked or fractured. They are ideal if a tooth is not damaged enough to need the protection of a dental crown but has endured enough damage that it cannot be repaired with a filling. Inlays and onlays are also called indirect restorations as they are made outside the mouth.
- Regular Dental Checkups: Complete checkups involve a comprehensive assessment of your oral health, detection of underlying problems using digital X-Rays when necessary, screenings for oral cancer and a professional dental cleaning which cleanses your mouth and helps prevent cavities and gum disease.
- Fillings: Our practice offers amalgam as well as tooth-colored dental fillings to help restore the structure and function of decayed and damaged teeth.
- Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder characterized by short pauses in breathing while sleeping. It is due to blockage of the upper airway, leading to reduced airflow in the lungs. Our practice offers comprehensive oral appliance therapy to help treat sleep apnea and snoring.
