General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is the medical specialty that focuses on teeth and gum health. At Heiden Family Dental, Dr. Heiden and his skilled team offer a variety of services to help you maintain optimal oral health, no matter your age or current dental health.

As a general dentist, Dr. Heiden can address the most common dental concerns, such as cavities, tooth pain, cleanings, and more. He can also help you navigate more complex dental issues.

What are the general dentistry services available?

Dr. Heiden offers many different general dentistry services to address all of your family’s needs, including:

  • Regular oral exams
  • Teeth cleaning
  • Fillings
  • Bonding and veneers
  • Sealants
  • Non-surgical gum treatments
  • X-rays

If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, Dr. Heiden and his team can help you start an oral health plan that takes into account your needs and your budget. Combined with cosmetic services, you can have the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

What should I look for in a general dentist?

Even if you only go to the dentist twice a year, it’s important to build a relationship with someone you trust. Look for a general dentist who is trained in various procedures and has a broad range of dental experience.

Dr. Heiden is both a general and a cosmetic dentist, which means he can customize your treatment plan so you achieve the best-looking, healthiest smile possible. He is also adept at helping patients who have anxiety about going to the dentist, ensuring you have a calm, relaxing, and positive experience.

What are the benefits of general dentistry?

The state of your mouth and teeth can affect other aspects of your health, as bacteria that collects in the gums or teeth can create infection and compromise your immune health. Poor oral health has even been linked to conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

With regular dental appointments, you can not only protect your teeth and gums, but you can prevent more serious complications that may arise.

As your general dentist, Dr. Heiden can also coordinate care with other specialists, like a periodontist. He makes every effort to ensure that his patients are healthy, educated, and empowered.
