What is General and Preventative Dentistry?

General and preventative dentistry focuses on maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental problems before they arise. By emphasizing good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing regularly, and promoting healthy habits, general and preventative dentistry aims to keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. A general dentist is a trusted dental professional with many years of training and a firm grasp on improving the form and function of a patient’s smile. 

At Sheridan Dental, our team provides comprehensive general and preventative dental care to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. If you are in the process of choosing a new dentist, the team at Sheridan Dental welcomes the opportunity to show you what makes us so unique.

Our General and Preventative Services at Sheridan Dental

Our general dentistry team is proud of the many ways in which we promote healthy teeth and gums. From extensive oral cleanings and thorough full-mouth examinations to state-of-the-art dental treatments, we have much to offer our patients.

 

Choose from a wide variety of general dentistry services to help keep your smile in great shape, including:

 

Dental Fillings

A composite dental filling is a tooth-colored filling material used to fill holes in teeth created by decay. We only use composite fillings for small surface fillings where structural damage is insignificant. Many older adults may have gold fillings or an amalgam type of filling. These fillings may contain mercury, and modern dental care is way more effective in hiding dental work and blending it with natural tooth color.

 

Dr. Raymond Sheridan and Dr. Corey Sheridan prefer porcelain inlays and onlays for any large filling of cavities on the biting surface of a tooth. Inlays/onlays are restorations created in our lab and bonded to teeth. The filling procedure effectively removes decay and seals a tooth's surface to last much longer. 

More Services

Oral Cancer Screening: Your oral health is our priority. That's why we utilize the VELscope® device during routine check-ups to detect oral cancer in its earliest stages. This advanced technology allows us to identify abnormalities in the soft tissues of your mouth that may indicate the presence of oral cancer, enabling us to intervene and provide timely treatment if necessary.
