What Is General Dentistry?

General Dentistry is the term that refers to basic dental treatments like dental cleaning, cavity fillings, root canal treatment, fluoride treatment, extractions, etc. We provide complete dental care for all ages.

Why Choose Signature Smiles?

You will be quite comfortable at Signature Smiles, where your dental health is our top priority. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with high-quality, personalized dental care in a comfortable environment.

Signature Smiles, headed by Dr. Rahul Oza, has offered dental care to Mumbai and beyond! We treat everyone – from children to senior adults. Our dentists have more than 20 years of experience in handling general dental treatments.

Prevention and treatment are both parts of General Dentistry. During your visit, you can expect professional oral care as well as advice about self-care between office visits. Regular dental visits can lead to early diagnosis of oral health issues. This gives you an opportunity to address the issues at an earlier stage and helps you improve your overall health.

We offer a vast array of general family dentistry services.

Some Common General Dentistry Procedures

  • Teeth Cleaning/Scaling & Polishing: It is a procedure to clean the accumulated tartar and stains between the teeth using an ultrasonic vibrator. Scaling keeps your teeth clean and the gums healthy, thereby preventing any gum diseases. It is usually a single-sitting procedure. Along with proper home care, it is advised to have professional teeth cleaning every six months, depending on the necessity. Apart from cleaning, during these visits, our dentists also examine your entire mouth to ensure that your oral health is properly maintained.
  • Digital X-Rays: Through dental x-rays, we are able to diagnose many diseases within the oral cavity. Digital technology is used to capture a very accurate image with a very low dose of radiation.
  • Cavity Fillings: A filling is a way to replace the decayed/damaged tooth structure and restore it back to its normal function and strength. A tooth is restored using different dental cements like tooth-coloured composite or silver amalgam.
  • Filling material: One does not suit all! The Dentist, according to the clinical situation, will choose what’s best for you. Depending on the Dentist’s assessment, you will be suggested one of the following materials: Silver, Composite or tooth-coloured material.
  • Children’s Dentistry: We treat dental problems for children of all ages.
  • Braces (Orthodontic Treatment): We provide braces for individuals of all ages- children and adults. We offer all types of orthodontic treatments, like invisible/clear braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, and traditional metal braces.
  • Fluoride Treatment: This treatment is advised for people who are prone to tooth decay and erosion. The Dentist will apply fluoride varnish to your teeth to help in remineralization and prevention of tooth decay.
  • Tooth Extractions: Decayed and damaged teeth that cannot be saved are extracted to prevent further infection. Our dentists are masters of teeth extraction, with over 20 years of experience. You can rest assured you will have a pain-free and worry-free experience with us.

Tips to Prevent Tooth Decay

Everyone is familiar with the routine of keeping your mouth and protecting it from decay. The routine involves the following

  • Brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss once a day.
  • Keep away from sugar
  • Use mouthwash.
  • Visit your Dentist every six months.

What Are the Benefits of Getting On-Time Dental Treatments?

Dentists always advise patients to keep an eye on their oral health and get dental treatments on time. Doing so helps maintain oral health, prevents complications, and promotes overall well-being. Delaying oral care treatments can compromise your oral and general health.

Some of the main benefits of on-time dental care include

  • You prevent your teeth and gums from getting further decayed and damaged.
  • You can maintain your general health and hygiene by preventing any systemic illnesses from occurring.
  • This helps you to avoid extensive and costly treatments in the future.
