General Dentistry

Centennial, Aurora, and Parker, CO

General dentistry is the largest component of preventative dentistry, including biannual cleanings and examinations to keep your teeth and gums at their optimal health. In addition to its focus on prevention, general dentistry is also concerned with the detection and treatment of common oral health issues such as tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Aurora, Colorado general dentist, Dr. Richard Wallace, offers a full range of general dental services in addition to cosmetic and restorative dentistry. This allows Dr. Wallace to address every aspect of your smile at one conveniently located office.

General Dentistry Procedures

The most common general dental procedure is professional cleanings and examinations. These visits should take place every six months and will include fluoride treatments, tartar removal, and thorough examinations of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Some of these visits will include x-rays to detect problems that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

In addition to office visits, general dentistry includes tooth decay treatments such as dental fillings and tooth crowns, as well as the treatment of gum disease. With a focus on keeping your mouth as healthy and clean as possible, the general dentistry services offer by Dr. Wallace work to ensure your natural teeth remain strong and functional throughout your entire life.

Your Role in General Dentistry

Biannual visits to our office are essential for maintaining maximum oral health. However, there are steps you can take at home to assist in the prevention of common dental problems.

Your daily routine should include:

  • Brushing your teeth after every meal or at least twice a day with a soft-bristle tooth brush and fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing at least once a day

A good at-home oral hygiene routine is the first step in maintaining a healthy smile. Dr. Wallace can discuss proper brushing and flossing methods with you during your regularly scheduled appointments.
