What Is
General Dentistry?

General dentistry is a broad category of dental care that includes a wide range of treatments in solving oral health issues. General dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosing, preventing, and treating diseases and conditions associated with teeth, gums, jaws, lips, and other oral tissues.

Our team offers a variety of general dentistry services, including:

Wisdom Teeth Removal

A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of one or more wisdom teeth. These are the teeth at the back of your mouth.

If a wisdom tooth does not have enough room to grow, it can become impacted. Causing discomfort, infection, or other dental problems, it will most likely need to be extracted. Wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either a dentist or an oral surgeon.

A simple extraction may only take just a minute, depending on the tooth's roots. The procedure takes longer if the roots are spread out or if someone requires surgical extraction.

Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontitis, often known as gum disease, is a common infection that affects the soft tissue and bone that support the tooth. Without treatment, the alveolar bone surrounding the teeth gradually and progressively deteriorates.

Our dentist will perform scaling and debridement to clean below the gumline. Hand tools or ultrasonic equipment that breaks up the plaque and tartar can be used to do this. Root planing is used to smooth rough areas on the teeth's roots. Bacteria can become trapped within the rough patches, increasing the risk of gum disease.


Dentures are fake teeth that are synthetic replacements for missing natural teeth. Some dentures are made to replace only a few missing teeth. Other kinds of dentures replace your entire mouth, including your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues.

Common types of denture may include the following:

Dental CheckUps

We believe that everyone deserves healthy dental health. Our goal is to help you maintain oral health and implement good dental hygiene for our patients through regular check-ups, dental cleaning, and giving out tips on how to maintain proper care.


Cavity fillings, also known as dental or tooth filling, are often used to fill small cavities in the mouth (tooth decay).

Your dentist administers a local anesthetic before placing a cavity filling (numbing medication). Then, a part of your tooth structure is extracted. Lastly, your dentist will use a tooth-coloured filling material to fill the cavity.
