Benefits of General Dentistry

General dentistry is an essential healthcare service with many benefits:

  • Checking for signs of oral cancer and other diseases
  • Improving overall health and reducing the chance of developing severe conditions like diabetes, stroke, and heart disease
  • Preventing future dental decay
  • Preventing and treating gum disease and how to prevent it from recurring in the future
  • Finding cavities and other problems early using the most advanced diagnostic equipment
  • Reinforcing healthy home care habits and providing instruction and inspiration on brushing and flossing

Procedures Offered

While many procedures fall under the category of general dentistry, these are the most important:

Preventive Care

Dentists perform comprehensive oral exams, checking a patient’s mouth, neck, and head for abnormalities and possible signs of oral cancer. They evaluate ongoing dental issues and check for emerging problems. We work closely with local ENTs and oncologists.

Home Care Instruction

Dental decay and gum disease are bacterial infections. If patients keep their teeth clean, there will be no cavities or gum disease. We inspire our patients to brush and floss at least twice daily and use a Waterpik more frequently to reduce plaque and calculus build-up.

Dental Cleanings

Patients must see their general dentist at least twice a year for a dental cleaning. Cleanings remove built-up plaque and tartar, which are bacterial masses. They help combat gum disease and prevent further damage due to tooth decay. If a patient has gum disease, they may need more frequent visits that include scaling and root planing


Patients of all ages receive fluoride treatments to protect their teeth from decay. Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel. Adults benefit from fluoride as much as children.


Children and adolescents receive dental sealants to help prevent cavities in the permanent molars. Sealants are substances painted onto the molars to keep food and plaque from building up in deep creases in the teeth.

Digital Dentistry

Fine Dental Care uses the latest digital technology to evaluate and diagnose dental issues.

The CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scanner lets dentists dive in and pinpoint problems before they become severe and understand the patient’s oral health with less radiation and more comfort than conventional X-rays of the mouth. CBCT scanners can also help plan comfortable, safe, and accurate dental implant surgeries. 

Digital X-rays provide more detail than film and plate X-rays and use less radiation. With no development time, it is easy for dentists to share X-ray information with their patients and thoroughly explain what needs to happen to preserve their oral health.


Fine Dental Care extracts problem teeth, relieving pain and making room for restorations like implants and bridges. We provide comfortable tooth extractions with little, if any, pain or discomfort.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third permanent molars. It is best to determine the status of wisdom teeth in the mid-teens when removing them is more comfortable and less likely to cause pain, swelling, and inflammation in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions About General Dentistry

What is the connection between overall and oral health?

Oral health may have a significant impact on your overall health. The long-term inflammation associated with gum disease can raise your risk of heart and metabolic problems and preterm birth.

Are digital X-rays safe?

Digital X-rays use only a tiny fraction of the radiation used by traditional film X-ray systems. The CBCT scanner uses very little radiation and provides incredibly accurate results. Only 20 percent of dental practices use the CBCT scanner.

What happens if I skip dental cleanings?

If you miss dental cleanings, plaque and tartar will continue to build up on your teeth. You may experience dental decay. Tartar beneath the gum line could cause severe gum disease, possibly leading to tooth loss. Cavities and gum disease are bacterial infections.

Are dental cleanings painful?

Dental cleanings are not painful, but they may be if you have plaque, tartar, and gum disease. We have several ways to make your experience comfortable if you have these issues. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if anything bothers you. We want this to be your best dental experience ever.

What home care routine should I follow?

Brush and floss your teeth at least twice daily. Fluoride toothpaste is ideal, and if needed, you can receive prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste to stop emerging cavities. Be sure to brush your teeth for two minutes.

Floss at least twice daily, making sure to go all the way down between the teeth to remove stubborn plaque and food particles. Once you have developed a healthy flossing habit, it becomes easy to do and takes less than two minutes to save your teeth.

Consider using an electric toothbrush for better plaque removal if conventional brushing is problematic. Brushing your teeth is vital, but brushing your gums and tongue can help remove additional bacterial plaque from your mouth.

When should my child see the dentist for the first time?

Dentists recommend bringing your child for their first exam between one and two years of age after baby teeth appear. Early care is a must for dental health.

Should my child receive fluoride treatments?

In NJ, there is no added fluoride in our water. However, dentists found that people living in areas with naturally-fluoridated water had few cavity issues. Children can receive a prescription vitamin containing fluoride to attain the most robust, cavity-resistant teeth. We see a vast difference between those who had this vitamin as children and those who did not.
