Enjoy the Benefits of General Dental Care

To stay in good shape, you know you need to eat a healthy diet and exercise. Similarly, you need practice certain habits to maintain your oral health. This starts with brushing and flossing daily and coming in for dental checkups on a regular basis. We are happy to see all members of your family, ages 3 and up.

By visiting our general dentist as part of your routine, you can take advantage of all these services:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – Professional cleanings remove bacteria as well as plaque and tartar buildup. We also check for signs of cavities and periodontal disease, so they can be treated as soon as possible.
  • Fluoride Treatments – This mineral makes your teeth stronger and more resistant to decay.
  • Dental Sealants – Sealants protect your smile by acting as a barrier between harmful bacteria and your teeth.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – This starts with scaling and root planing. Then we apply Cervitec, a varnish for your gums that provides added protection for 90 days as you heal.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – Dry mouth can increase your risk of other oral health problems, which makes it important to address the root cause of your condition.
  • Bad Breath Treatment – Halitosis affects millions of people. We can identify the source of your bad breath, so you can treat it and prevent it in the future.
  • Mouthguards – We can make custom-designed appliances to protect your smile from injury or a nightguard to stop teeth grinding in your sleep.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings – Early detection can make a huge difference in oral cancer treatment.

We put technology to work to make dental visits more efficient and effective for you and your family. We use a variety of pain-reducing techniques, including local and topical anesthetic, a desensitizing paste, and sedation dentistry, to greatly reduce dental anxiety.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

Why should I go to a general dentist?

Going to a general dental professional is the best way to meet multiple dental needs in one place. Our dental team has the training and experience to provide the majority of services you need to keep your gums and teeth healthy and beautiful. From routine exams and cleanings to complicated full-mouth repairs and oral surgery, you’ll find a large array of services.

Can a general dentist do cosmetic dentistry?

Some, though not all, general dentists perform cosmetic procedures. Thanks to Dr. Jo Schope’s advanced training and experience in cosmetic treatments and techniques, you can beautify your smile with many cosmetic services at Schope Dental. Our services include professional teeth whitening, veneers, gum reshaping, tooth contouring, and smile makeovers.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.
