General & Family Dentistry for Livonia
A fantastic smile needs a solid foundation, and regular maintenance forms the cornerstone of optimum oral health for patients of all ages. Our mouths host a variety of bacteria, and we fight an ongoing battle to protect our teeth. Daily teeth brushing and flossing are imperative, but everyone needs professional plaque removal and other general family dentistry preventive measures.
The Livonia Dental Group team encourages general family dentistry care not only to control cavities and gum disease, but also to enhance your overall wellness with a vibrant, healthy smile. Your initial visit will entail a complete oral examination, a TMJ screening, a periodontal assessment, digital X-rays, and oral cancer assessment. This is important because oral cancer will take the lives of 7500 people this year. Your initial visit will take about an hour, and when you leave our Livonia dental office, you’ll have a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan so that you know what’s recommended for your best smile.
To serve the needs of our multi-generational patients, we have tailored our general family dentistry services to address common areas of concern. For our young patients, we provide fluoride supplements and sealants as protection against cavities as a part of our children’s dentistry program. We can create customized mouth-guards for our athletic patients so that they can enjoy sports and protect their smiles.
Our most popular general services include:
- Regular Checkups
- Digital X-rays
- Periodontal Therapy
Nightguards for Bruxism
Fluoride Treatments & Sealants for Children
- Athletic Mouthguards
A brilliant, white smile is useless without healthy gums. Years before symptoms such as swollen, bleeding gums or loose teeth appear, you could have developed gum disease, also called periodontal disease. Research shows a link between gum disease and other serious health conditions, like heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes complications. That's why our Livonia general family dentistry office works hard to keep your gums in tip-top shape. For advanced stages of gum disease, we offer scaling, root planing, and antibiotic therapy. We may also recommend laser therapy and professional-grade toothpaste and mouthwash to combat the problem.
Depending on the stage of gum disease found, periodontal therapy may include:
- Charting and Diagnostic Exam
- Hygiene Cleanings
- Laser Therapy
- Antibiotic Therapy
- Peridex Mouth Rinse
- Prevident Toothpaste
If you notice swollen or bleeding gums, call our general dentistry office right away to schedule an appointment. Our Livonia dental office professionals can get your oral health back on track.
Snoreguards are a great alternative to patients who can't use a CPAP machine. If you're having trouble sleeping, our office can consult with you on a dental sleep appliance that can help!
