What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry is the primary care of your mouth, teeth, and gums. A general dentistry practice can diagnose and treat oral health care concerns, including gingivitis prevention from our gum specialistsrestorative dentistry like cavity fillings and root canals, teeth cleaning, and cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as crowns, bridges, and veneers.

A general dentist also helps patients with preventative care, such as education and regular check-ups. A general dentist will have either a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. However, some dentists will also have specialty degrees, such as in orthodontics. General dentists also provide emergency dental care if you chip a tooth or have an accident that needs immediate attention.

The Importance of Regular Oral Hygiene

Most DMD and DDS dentists recommend a check-up and dentist tooth cleaning every six months. Having your teeth cleaned professionally helps reduce tartar buildup and ensures you have a bright, healthy smile. Professional teeth cleaning removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and the gum line, creating an environment that reduces the amount of plaque and tartar buildup.

What Can I Expect With Dental Teeth Cleaning?

Many individuals get nervous when visiting the dentist, but understanding the process can help reduce the nervousness that many people feel.

First, the dental hygienist will use a thin metal scraper to manually remove the plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. Some dentists may use a small ultrasound device that uses vibrations to remove the plaque instead. Next, the dentist or hygienist will floss in between your teeth.

Finally, an abrasive paste will be applied to the surface of your teeth. This makes your teeth smooth and shiny, and the newly slick surface will make it more difficult for plaque and tartar to adhere to the surface of your teeth.

Keeping Your Teeth Healthy at Home

The best way to keep the fresh, white smile from your dentist’s cleaning is to brush and floss twice a day. When you brush, make sure to use small circles and get right up to the gumline. Brush for a full two minutes – set a timer if you need to. Don’t forget to floss, either — flossing helps clean in between teeth and remove food particles, plaque, and tartar that your toothbrush can’t reach.

Be careful when brushing, however. Over-aggressive brushing can actually damage the tooth enamel. Plus, if you brush within 30 minutes of eating, you may further damage the enamel, as it’s weaker right after eating. Consider limiting your consumption of sugar and acidic foods to reduce your risk of cavities.

What Are Dental Implants?

Full dental implants are replacements for both the missing tooth and the missing root. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are inserted into the gum, replacing both the root and the tooth.

Dental implants can be categorized as restorative dentistry surgery, as they contribute to your mouth’s health.

The dental implant begins with inserting a titanium screw into the jaw. This stimulates the jaw’s bone growth and reduces the “thinning” that can happen when teeth are missing. Once this has healed, the “cap” tooth is fitted into place, and can often be colored to match the surrounding teeth.

With dental implants, you can bite, speak, and chew regularly. Plus, the implant keeps other teeth from shifting in the mouth and maintains oral health. At Dental Beauty, we offer our patients affordable dental implants so they can get the smile they deserve at a cost that aligns with their budget!

Types of Dental Implants

There are a few types of dental implants, and your Bucks County dentist can help you determine which one is best for your mouth. Also, some patients may need to have bone grafting performed on the jaw to support the implant. This can include bone augmentation or a sinus lift, adding bone below the sinus where it’s deteriorated due to missing back teeth on the upper part of the jaw.

  • Subperiosteal dental implants are placed under the gum, and either on or above the jawbone. This type of implant is best for people who don’t have a healthy enough jawbone and don’t want to or cannot undergo bone augmentation procedures to rebuild it.
  • Endosteal dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone. These use the titanium screw implant and are the most common type of implant.

FAQs About Dental Implants

Here are some common questions we hear about dental implants:

Does dental insurance cover implants?

Many dental insurance companies consider implants to be a cosmetic dentistry procedure, and therefore may not provide coverage. We can work with your insurance to help determine if this is a medically necessary procedure. If you’re considering dental implants, you may wish to look for a new dental policy that does cover the procedure before booking the appointment.

Does PA Medicaid cover dental implants?

Traditional Medicaid, which is Medicaid Part A and Medicaid Part B, does not cover dental implants. However, some supplemental Medicaid insurance plans, called Medicare Advantage Plans, may cover dental implants. Private insurance companies provide these plans, and each plan varies on coverage.

How much do dental implants cost in PA?

Depending on the number of implants you need and whether you need bone grafting procedures, the costs can vary widely. Consult one of our dentists for more information regarding an accurate assessment.
