General Dentistry

As the field of cosmetic dentistry continues to grow, it can sometimes be difficult to find a dentist who is able to provide general dentistry procedures in Anchorage. But as a multi-specialty dentist, Advanced Dental Solutions is able to provide enhancement procedures such as teeth whitening and veneers while also providing general dentistry procedures such as crowns and fillings.

General Dentistry is Important to Your Overall Heath

Why is general dentistry so important?
We use our teeth 24/7, 365 days a year for life. Not only do we use them to chew food, but also for speaking, swallowing, smiling, and supporting the natural appearance for our face. This constant use, along with other common abuses of our teeth, like biting on things such as pencils, pens, fishing line, opening boxes, biting on bones, and countless other things, causes wearing down, cracks, chips, and fractures of our teeth.

Without regular dental checkups for your teeth, and gums, your optimal dental health will suffer and increase your risks of loss of teeth. With regular check-ups, problem areas can be caught, and addressed early, and possibly prevent more serious dental problems, such as pain, root canals, or loss of teeth.

Prevention

Because preventative services such as regular check-ups and cleanings are a critical component to your overall health. Without these procedures, you’re at risk for gum disease which is directly linked to heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. If you experience any type of bleeding from your gums when you brush or floss, your body is telling you that it’s time to visit a general dentist for an exam and cleaning. Some other symptoms include swollen or tender gums, gums that appear to be receding, and loose or shifting teeth.
