Are you looking for a dentist who can care for your oral health? A professional who is dedicated to protecting your teeth and gums from disease, or treating that disease when it arises? These are examples of general dentistry, but at Advanced Dentistry of Edgewater, we sometimes call this “foundational dentistry,” because healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a beautiful smile as well as good overall health.

Advanced Dentistry of Edgewater offers you a dental home that can meet all your family’s dental needs, from basic preventive care to complex restorative and even cosmetic dentistry.

Importance of General Dentistry

The focus of general dentistry is maintaining your oral health. This is primarily based in a preventive dentistry philosophy: it’s best to avoid problems developing rather than trying to correct them. That’s why we recommend that all our patients get regular preventive appointments that include a checkup as well as a professional cleaning. Your at-home hygiene is the most important part of keeping your mouth healthy, but if it’s not supported by professional cleanings, it will fall short in the long run.

Oral health matters a lot more than you might think. The mouth is the gateway to the body: nearly everything that enters the body enters through the mouth. Even air inhaled through the nose passes through the back of the mouth. If there is disease–infection– in the mouth, that can also be transported from the mouth through the body. Oral bacteria can enter your lungs. They can travel through your blood, contributing to arterial plaque and potentially infecting your heart. They can even enter your sinuses and progress onto your brain. Even if the infection never progresses beyond your mouth, it can put stress on your immune system, which can make it harder for your body to combat other infections or lead to autoimmune disorders.

Regular checkups let us detect oral health problems before they become too serious. When detected early enough, cavities can actually be healed by changing your diet and your hygiene. Even if it needs a filling, that’s better than needing a crown or root canal.
