Austin and Round Rock General Dentists
At Family Tree Dental Group, general dentistry falls into two categories: preventative and restorative. Preventative general dentistry consists of routine treatments designed to keep your teeth free from plaque and cavities. Restorative general dentistry consists of procedures which strengthen, repair, remove, or replace teeth that are decayed or missing.
Preventative General Dentistry
All new patients receive a dental examination with 100% digital x-rays and teeth cleaning. These exams are performed by a licensed dental hygienist.
Teeth cleaning treatments include:
• Light scaling of tooth plaque
• Comprehensive flossing to combat gingivitis (gum disease)
• Fluoride treatment to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities
• Buffing and polishing the tooth’s surface
After analyzing x-rays and inspecting the cleaning, the dentist will perform a exam to check the health of all incisors and molars. Based on the findings, the dentist will recommend necessary future treatments. To protect chewing surfaces of molars located in the back of the mouth, you may be a candidate for sealants. Sealants are a thin film that protects teeth most prone to decay.
Restorative General Dentistry
This branch includes a variety of dental treatments:
• Natural-colored tooth fillings
• Root canals, crowns and bridges
• Teeth removal due to overcrowding
• Wisdom teeth extraction
• Dentures and dental implants
