Valley Dental Care of Plainfield is committed to improving the health of our community. With our wide range of general dentistry services — which help to restore your teeth and prevent disease — we will work to maintain your dental health, a vital part of your overall well-being.
How Can We Help?
With cutting-edge technology and innovative procedures, we are well equipped to provide you with the best possible care.
Our services include:
- Prevention of Oral Health Conditions: During your regular check-up, your dentist will inspect your teeth, gums, and jaw to evaluate your risk for disease or infection. They will also perform a number of services to prevent oral conditions, such as professional cleanings, x-rays, and a review of home care routines. By visiting your dentist twice a year for these services, you greatly reduce the risk of infection, gum disease, and tooth decay.
- Restoration of the Oral Cavity: If, during your exam, your dentist uncovers any issues with your teeth or gums, you may require one or more of our restorative treatments. This includes fillings, root canals, crowns, dental implants, and more, and could remedy any issues from tooth decay, to chronic pain, to extensive wear and beyond.
- Aesthetic Improvements: Your dentist can even provide you with cosmetic dental services to improve the appearance of your smile. This can include professional teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, and more. If you’re interested in enhancing your smile, simply speak with your dentist to learn more about your treatment options.
Why is General Dentistry so Important?
You may not realize it, but your oral health and your overall well-being are very much intertwined. If you are suffering from any oral health conditions, it can actually impact the rest of your body. Gum disease, for example, can cause heart disease, complications with diabetes, respiratory illnesses, and even premature birth. Bad breath might be a warning sign of underlying stomach problems. Poor dental health can even lead to complications during labor. For this reason, it is critical to maintain your oral health, and the best way to do so is by visiting your general dentist every six months.
During these biannual appointments, your general dentist will provide preventative treatments to combat gum disease, tooth decay, and more. They will treat issues that could wreak havoc on your overall health down the line—such as decay, infection, or missing teeth—and restore your teeth, gums, and jaw back into their best possible condition. However, if you begin to suffer from any unusual symptoms—such as bleeding gums, bad breath, or toothache—between these regularly scheduled check ups, be sure to make an appointment with our office right away. These could be symptomatic of greater complications, and should be treated as quickly as possible.
