General Dentistry

Achieving the perfect smile is only a phone call away! At Rinaldi Dental Arts, we have helped many clients to achieve their dream smiles. From discoloration to a chipped tooth, there are many concerns that people have about their teeth and their smile. These concerns can impact confidence, which can flood into other areas of your life. Our team of experienced and talented dentists can help you regain or maintain confidence in your smile.

General Dentistry Services

General dentistry covers a number of different treatment options and procedures. These treatments are critical to protecting your teeth and maintaining a good standard of oral health. We offer a number of different treatments to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy and looking great. We do this by always watch for signs and symptoms that could lead to future dental problems. Prevention is the best medicine, especially when it comes to gum disease. By catching gum disease or any other dental issues early, we can treat it effectively.

Routine Examinations

Routine examinations are critical, no matter your age or the condition of your teeth. A routine examination is the start of a personal dental plan. This helps us determine treatments needed for continued oral health. Regular routine examinations enable us to thoroughly inspect your gums, teeth, mouth, joints, neck, and jaw. We can then determine if you have any underlying oral health issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or cancer.

Early Indicators

A routine test is important so any early indicators of irregularities can be spotted. This enables treatment at the earliest possible opportunity to prevent the condition from worsening. This is critical because a lot of oral health problems end up going unnoticed, which causes them to manifest into much bigger issues.

X-Rays

Some routine exams involve X-rays to evaluate your oral health. X-rays help us discover cavities, abnormalities such as bone loss, teeth alignment, etc. X-rays enable us to get a more in-depth look at the situation.

Restorative Treatment

A lot of the general dentistry services that we provide fall into the restorative treatment category. Dental restoration is all about restoring damaged teeth to be more functional and healthy.

If you have cavities, fillings are an effective treatment. As cavitated teeth are prone to bacteria build-up, an infection can set in quickly and even result in tooth loss. A lot of cavities go unnoticed, showing no symptoms until they become bigger. We will spot the early signs of cavities to ensure early treatment before further damage can occur.

Dental Crowns

If you have a cracked tooth or extensive tooth damage from decay, a conventional filling may not be enough for long-term support. Dr. Rinaldi may advise a dental crown instead to ensure the affected tooth is restored. A crown is basically a cap that covers or replaces a damaged tooth, preventing further damage and decay.

Dental crowns are frequently used to restore a tooth after a root canal or treating a tooth that has been chipped.

Tooth Extraction

In the case of tooth removal, Dr. Rinaldi can perform this procedure quickly and comfortably. No one wants to lose a tooth, especially as an adult. Dr. Rinaldi will only remove a tooth if he believes it is the only option and completely necessary. This is because a missing tooth can cause further issues later in life, such as teeth shifting out of place or bone degeneration.

If tooth removal is absolutely necessary there are options to replace your tooth or teeth to prevent future complications. Dental prosthesis such as a dental crown, dental bridge, or dental implant can replace missing teeth. Dr. Rinaldi will explain all of your options so you understand the pros and cons and make an informed decision. Dr. Rinaldi will also educate you on how to properly care for your teeth to prevent further damage or tooth loss.
