What is general dentistry?

General dentistry focuses on improving the health and function of your smile. This includes preventive measures to protect teeth from decay, as well as restorative treatments to repair damaging dental conditions. We offer comprehensive general and family dentistry in Burlington, North Carolina. The health of your smile is of the utmost importance to our entire dental team.

How often do I need to visit the dentist?

We suggest visiting our expert dentist, Dr. Monahan, every six months to maintain optimal dental health. However, if you are experiencing any of the following signs or symptoms, we invite you to call or visit our dental office immediately:

  • Tooth pain, especially when biting or chewing
  • Bleeding or swollen gums
  • Dental trauma, such as broken or knocked-out teeth
  • Outdated dental restorations
  • Loose teeth
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Missing teeth

Certain lifestyle habits and health conditions also increase your risk for dental decay, necessitating more vigilant care. This includes smoking, using tobacco products, people with weak immune systems, and those with diabetes. No matter the condition of your smile, we have solutions to provide and care to give.
