Only some of the services offered by Capitol Premier Dental Group
General dentistry is unlike specialists, who are mostly focused on a particular aspect of dental practice such as Periodontal care and Orthodontics. General dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body. General dentists provide services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health.
We will work with you to develop a customized dental hygiene plan that incorporates dental examination, tooth cleaning, possible tooth scaling, X-ray and use of other diagnostic equipment to prevent, uncover or treat problems as early as possible.
We may incorporate a variety of restorative procedures in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that will help prevent decay or disease of the teeth, mouth, gums and tongue. We also use restorative dentistry procedures to repair the effects of tooth decay, trauma, defect or disease in these areas of the mouth.
Dr. Yahnian and Dr. Brewka have also pursued cosmetic dental solutions such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and implants to help support the emotional wellness and confidence of our patients. Our mantra is “Smiles Worth Sharing,” because we believe that your emotional wellness is at the cornerstone of who you are and we believe we can positively affect your life by addressing your dental needs. Here are a list of services that we offer at Capitol Premier Dental Group:
These help you maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in your mouth. Regular exams (including diagnostic images such as x-rays) and professional teeth cleanings are a cornerstone of prevention. Your general dentist may give you detailed instructions to improve your at-home oral hygiene, and may also recommend preventive fluoride treatments. And if you lead an active lifestyle or if you experience teeth grinding while you sleep, you can be fitted with a custom-made mouth guard.
When a problem is found, we will ensure you get timely and appropriate treatment. Probably the most common (and highly effective) dental restoration involves removing tooth decay and placing a filling in the affected tooth. But that’s not the only restorative procedure that we provide. We offer you a place to go when you need prompt treatment for dental trauma—for example, a broken, loosened or knocked-out tooth. We can diagnose and treat the causes of tooth pain or periodontal (gum) disease. We may also offer treatments for missing teeth, place crowns or bridgework, and help you get fitted with dentures. We provide more advanced treatments as well, such as root canal therapy, orthodontics, and dental implants.
Our dental office can help you get the sparkling smile you’ve always wanted with a range of cosmetic procedures. These include teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding—even porcelain veneers. If a brighter smile is what you’re looking for, ask us about a smile makeover.
Overall Health Concerns
In many respects, your oral health can be seen as a mirror of your general health. Some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of your body, and vice versa. For example, untreated oral infections can lead to poorer control of diabetes, an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, and complications during pregnancy. General dentists are trained to identify these and other issues, and offer appropriate treatment or referral when needed. One special concern is obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially deadly condition that can sometimes be treated with an oral appliance. General dentists can also offer nutritional counseling, advice on tobacco cessation and general health and wellness information.
When Should I See The Dentist?
The short answer is: every six months for preventative services—and otherwise, whenever you have a concern about your oral health. You may have a clear signal (such as a toothache or bleeding gums) that something in your mouth needs attention. Or, you may have heard of a cosmetic procedure that you’d like to find out more about. In either case, don’t hesitate to call us.
In terms of routine dental appointments, there isn’t a single schedule that fits all patients. Depending on your individual circumstances, we may want to see you twice a year, every three months, or another interval. Whatever it is, don’t let those appointments go! Keeping up with the recommended schedule of preventive treatment and practicing effective oral hygiene at home are the two best ways to prevent dental disease—and keep your smile looking bright and healthy for the rest of your life. We make it our job to keep you healthy and will help you in your quest to stay on schedule with your dental care.
This was the best dental experience I’ve ever had! I was able to get myself and my daughter scheduled last minute and we were well cared for and treated wonderfully.
