Our General Dentistry Services in Silver Spring, MD

General dentistry is a branch of dental care that helps maintain oral health. Preventive dentistry is also part of general dentistry. Routine dental checkups and exams are the foundation of good oral health. During regular visits, we look for signs of dental problems and thoroughly clean the teeth and gums.

In addition to routine care, we provide dental treatments that support your dental health:

  • Dental Cleanings: We recommend that you visit our office twice a year for a routine cleaning. Thorough dental cleanings help prevent tooth decay. With routine cleanings, we remove leftover food and bacteria you can miss at home.
  • Dental Fillings: We can fill your dental cavities before it’s too late to save your natural tooth. After cleaning your cavity, we provide white fillings to seal and restore your tooth.
  • Family Dentistry:
  • Busy families can rest at ease knowing a family dentist in Silver Spring, MD, can see your family on the same day. We provide dental services for the whole family and patients in every stage of life.
  • Root Canals: Do you have tooth decay? Did you avoid getting dental fillings and now need a root canal? Don’t worry because we provide pain-free root canal treatment at Advanced Total Dental Care. A root canal can also relieve pain from dental infection.
  • Periodontal Therapy: Gum disease is a top cause of tooth loss in America. Properly treating problems like bleeding gums, gum pain, and gum inflammation can prevent gum recession and tooth loss.
  • Tooth Extractions: We remove wisdom teeth and other teeth beyond saving to protect your healthy teeth and gums. Our office ensures your comfort during this treatment for a pain-free tooth extraction. If needed, we can replace your extracted tooth.
  • Sedation Dentistry: Our office uses oral conscious sedation to treat patients with anxiety and fear of the dentist. Sedation is also helpful for patients with long dental treatments.
  • Sleep Apnea Treatment: Treating sleep apnea can help you get a good night’s sleep. If you’re tired of CPAP machines, we offer an alternative. Oral appliance therapy can reduce pauses in breathing during sleep by opening the airway.

What Does a Dental Exam Include?

The best way to avoid serious dental issues is to visit your dentist twice yearly. During these visits, Dr. Rever will give you a thorough exam to check for dental problems. With over 30 years of experience in dentistry, Dr. Rever can handle any issues that a routine dental screening uncovers. Our dental exams include the following:

  • A thorough and informative consultation with Dr. Rever
  • Diagnostic Digital X-rays
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Treatment planning
  • Gum screening
  • Dental cavity screening

If Dr. Rever finds any problems during this exam, he will present you with your treatment options. Then, he will create a treatment plan customized to you.

Why Are Dental Visits Essential?

Regular visits detect and treat oral health problems, from tooth decay to oral cancer. Some patients may need to see the dentist more often than others to treat problems like gum disease. We will recommend a schedule for you based on your dental problems.

However, everyone should come in for routine dental care twice per year. When you visit with us regularly, Dr. Rever and our staff gets to know you and understand your concerns. Cleanings also help remove bacteria that are hard to remove with brushing and flossing.

Additionally, we emphasize patient education and disease prevention. We will answer your questions and explain your treatment so you can understand your procedure.

Disease prevention focuses on fighting problems like gum disease and tooth decay. Dr. Rever may recommend a preventative plan for in-office and at-home treatment. These treatments may be as simple as brushing and flossing. They may also involve regular dental screenings and cleanings.

Dr. Rever will also discuss any habits that may affect the long-term health of your smile. Smoking or eating sugary foods can impact health. We want you to enjoy the benefits of oral health for your overall health and well-being.
