What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the overall health of your smile. This includes patient education about good oral hygiene, measures to prevent tooth decay, and treatments to repair damage. At Creekside Dental Ellensburg, we are committed to providing comprehensive general dentistry in Ellensburg, Washington to meet all of your dental needs. No matter the condition of your smile, we strive to provide quick and effective solutions.

How often should I visit the dentist?

We suggest visiting our skilled dentists, Drs. Packard and Packard, once every six months to maintain an optimal level of oral health. Regular visits to our office ensure we catch any decay or damage before it becomes serious and takes a toll on your overall oral health. Early diagnosis is key to providing the most effective dental treatments. If you experience the following signs of tooth decay or damage, it may be time to come in for a check-up:

  • Tooth pain or a toothache, especially when biting or chewing
  • Bleeding gums
  • Tender or swollen gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Dental trauma

To schedule your visit with one of our dentists, we encourage you to call our dental office today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
