General Dentistry

MacArthur Dentistry
We provide a wide array of services that are vital to your continued health, including: Preventive services — These help you maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in your mouth. Regular exams (including diagnostic images such as x-rays) and professional teeth cleanings are a cornerstone of prevention. We may give you detailed instructions to improve your at-home oral hygiene, and may also recommend preventive treatments such as sealants, if needed. And if you lead an active lifestyle, you can be fitted with a custom-made mouthguard at our office. Restorative Services — When a problem is found, we will ensure you get timely and appropriate treatment. Probably the most common (and highly effective) dental restoration involves removing tooth decay and placing a filling in the affected tooth. But that’s not the only restorative procedure we provide. We offer prompt treatment for dental trauma—for example, a broken, loosened or knocked-out tooth. We can diagnose and treat the causes of tooth pain or periodontal (gum) disease. We also offer treatments for missing teeth, place crowns or bridgework, and help you get fitted with dentures. We provide more advanced treatments, such as root canal therapy, orthodontics, and dental implants, as well. Cosmetic Procedures — We can help you get the sparkling smile you’ve always wanted with a range of cosmetic procedures. These include teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding—even porcelain veneers. If a brighter smile is what you’re looking for, ask us about a smile makeover. Overall Health Concerns — In many respects, your oral health can be seen as a mirror of your general health. Some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of your body, and vice versa. For example, untreated oral infections can lead to poorer control of diabetes, an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, and complications during pregnancy. We are trained to identify these and other issues, and offer appropriate treatment or referral when needed. General dentists can also offer nutritional counseling, advice on tobacco cessation and general health and wellness information.
