GeneralDentistry Services

General and family dentistry procedures help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile. This includes treatments for cavities, gum problems, and other general dental needs.

General Dentistry Services

At The Dental Office Encino, our goal is to take a well-rounded approach to your oral healthcare. We will do everything we can to make sure your mouth is cared for through our extensive general dentistry services.

We encourage everyone to come to our office every six months for regular cleaning. We also know that there are some situations where this might not be enough. If we identify oral health issues, we will use our general dentistry services to ensure your mouth is taken care of. Learn more about our general dentistry services below, and give us a call to make an appointment.

Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are custom made to restore the strength and appearance of a tooth by covering a large area of damaged or infected enamel.

Root Canal Therapy

If an infection reaches the inner section of a tooth, a root canal can be performed to remove the diseased pulp and replace it with filling material.

Scaling and Root Planing

At the first signs of gum disease (gingivitis), a scaling and root planing treatment can be performed to remove debris from the gum pockets.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Once a cavity has been removed from the dental enamel, a tooth-colored filling is placed to seal the tooth and restore the appearance of your smile.

What General Dentistry Services Do You Offer?

There are several key general dentistry services that we offer. They include:

These are customized oral devices that we can use to improve the strength of your enamel. We can cover a large damaged area, protecting it from further harm while improving your oral health.

If we are concerned because oral tooth decay has reached the inner part of your tooth, we may recommend a root canal. This is performed to remove areas of diseased oral tissue. Then, we can replace it with filling material, preventing further damage.

If we are concerned that you are developing gum disease, such as gingivitis, we can perform root planing and scaling to remove debris from your gum pockets. This will protect your teeth and roots, ensuring they are securely attached to your gums.

If a cavity has formed, our first step is to remove the infected tissue. Then, we can replace the gap in your enamel using a tooth-colored filling that will be invisible to the naked eye.

How Do I Know if I Need These Services?

The best way to determine if you require these services is to come to our office for your regular cleaning. Every six months, we will take a close look at your mail to spot any issues. There might be problems that have not yet led to symptoms, and our goal is to stop them before they get worse. These treatments can help us do exactly that.

At the same time, there might also be situations where you develop significant oral health issues. You may feel a lot of discomfort in your mouth, or you might notice that you have shooting pain or sensitivity when you eat or drink hot or cold foods or liquids. If that happens, we can use our general dentistry services to assist you.
