General Dentistry

General DentistryBehind every set of healthy teeth is a good general dentist. He or she will ensure that your teeth and gums are ready for any restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures.

At Baystate Dental, we offer a full range of general dentistry services and cosmetic dentistry services. We are committed to providing state-of-the-art oral care for adults and children.

General Dentistry Services and Dental Education

The field of general dentistry focuses on keeping your teeth and gums free from decay and gum disease through preventative dental care. While regular dental visits are important for professional teeth cleaning, it is just as important for you to practice good dental hygiene at home every day.

We take the time to educate our patients and equip them with the techniques that help them achieve good oral health. These include:

  • How to brush and floss your teeth effectively
  • How often to brush and floss your teeth
  • What type of toothbrush to use
  • How often to visit the dentist
  • What foods to eat (and avoid) to ensure good dental health

Preventive General Dentistry

General dentists help you preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible. When you come in for your regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning, we can also perform an oral cancer screening. As scary as this may sound, it is always better to catch problems early before they grow more difficult to treat.

X-rays may be taken to help us identify tooth decay and fractures as well as gain a better understanding of the positioning of your teeth. Our dental office uses digital X-rays, which exposes you to far less radiation than conventional dental X-rays. Digital photos also provide detailed images that we can show you on the chairside monitor and easily zoom in on particular areas when necessary.

General Dentistry Services for Children in Springfield, MA

Well-trained to offer pediatric dentistry for younger patients, Baystate Dental’s general dentists are the right professionals to trust your whole family’s dental treatment to.
Your children can get an excellent start on good dental habits with the guidance of a good general dentist. This also gives them a better chance at growing up with consistent dental care, preventing future dental problems from developing. Instilling good oral hygiene habits in children and setting good examples yourself will help make daily brushing and flossing become second nature to them.

Sedation for General Dentistry Visits

Going to the dentist can be intimidating for children and adults alike, especially if you have had a negative experience in the past or just do not enjoy the sights, sounds and smells at a dental office. At Baystate Dental, we understand that anxiety. That is why we offer several sedation dentistry options to help you relax and remain calm through dental treatments or examinations.
