Enjoy Your Best Smile With Our General Dental Services

Regular dental care is crucial if you want your smile to look and function as it should. Too many people neglect their routine dentist visits and ultimately end up with cavities, gum disease, and other problems that could have been treated early on with regular care.

That’s why Dr. Wilburn and the American Dental Association both recommend that you come in every six months for a checkup. Oral problems are much easier to treat when they’re still small and haven’t yet caused big damage to your smile. Dr. Wilburn is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, so she has the skills needed to keep your smile in its best shape.

Dr. Wilburn provides a variety of smile care services. Here are some of the types of general dental care that she offers:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – You’ll receive a complete dental exam, including an oral cancer screening, using technology like digital X-rays, digital scanners, and intraoral cameras. Then we’ll clean and polish your teeth to give you that fresh-from-the-dentist feeling. An exam is also a great opportunity to address any smile concerns with Dr. Wilburn.
  • Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment – If we see signs of gum disease, we can take any of several approaches to your treatment. We offer deep cleaning with scaling and root planing, antibacterial irrigation, and topical antibiotics.
  • Custom-Designed Mouthguards – Our professionally made mouthguards will fit better, protect better, and last longer than store-bought models. They can be made for athletic use, to prevent teeth grinding, and to relieve TMJ symptoms.
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – Our team will work with you to determine the root cause of the problem, so we can offer advice and make recommendations for specialty products to help you manage this potentially embarrassing condition.
