Charleston & James Island General Dentistry Practice
General dentists are the primary service provider for your basic dental needs, whether you are young or old. There are about 143,000 dentists practicing in North America, and approximately 80 percent of those are general dentists. Our general dentist in James Island specializes in four main practice areas: Preventative Services, Overall Oral Health Concerns, Restorative Services, and Cosmetic Procedures. At Lowcountry Dental Arts, we are accepting new patients from all ages who require help in any of these dental categories.
Preventative Services & Overall Oral Health Care
Preventative services are what is performed at a typical dentist appointment. This generally includes an examination of the teeth and gums, a professional cleaning, a discussion of what your dentist found and how you might improve your overall health. Sometimes, dental digital x-rays are needed every couple years, especially in children with growing mouths and teeth.
All of these steps are taken to prevent disease or decay from affecting your oral health, as well as your overall health. Overall health can be greatly affected by your oral health, which not many people know or understand.
Our James Island general dentist has the ability to identify issues in your overall health and correlate them with a dental issue, and vice versa. For example, untreated oral infections can lead to serious problems such as cardiovascular disease or complications during pregnancy. Our general dentists are trained to know the appropriate measures and treatments to recommend for all patients, young and old.
Restorative & Cosmetic Services
Restorative services refer to when an issue is found in an exam, and measures are taken to address it. Our general dentist in James Island can guarantee that appropriate treatment will be arranged and executed in a timely fashion.
The most common form of restorative service performed by is removing tooth decay. Other services can include placing crowns or replacing missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry procedures refer to services such as professional teeth whitening to cosmetic bonding.
