Maintain a Beautiful Smile & Excellent Oral Health

Although you probably know that you should get a routine checkup twice a year, there is much more to our general dental care than that. The dentists and staff of Starr General Dentistry offer a full lineup of general dental treatments that can help you maintain an attractive smile. These treatments include:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – We’ll use digital X-rays and electronic cavity detectors to check for decay, then give you a complete dental exam and thorough teeth cleaning.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Deep cleaning using scaling and root planing will rid your teeth and gums of plaque, tartar, and bacteria that contribute to this condition.
  • Custom Athletic Mouthguards and Night Guards – Protect your pearly whites with these made-for-you appliances.
  • Fluoride Treatments and Varnishes – Fluoride applied to your teeth can prevent cavities and even reverse early-stage decay.
  • Tooth Sealants – Thin plastic coatings form a protective barrier against disease-causing bacteria. Often recommended for children, they work great for cavity-prone adults too.
  • Dry Mouth and Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment – We can offer advice and recommend specialty products for handling these chronic problems.

Don’t neglect routine care for your smile. Rely on our Waco general dentistry to maintain a bright smile all year long. Call Starr General Dentistry today at 254-401-0129 to make an appointment, or schedule online if it’s more convenient.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dental care includes many aspects of oral health; however, it is primarily focused on preventive care. This starts with regular dental checkups. Our team will give your teeth a professional cleaning, and we will examine your mouth with our eyes and digital X-rays. If we notice any problems, we want to address them early, when treatment is easier and more effective.

Is general dentistry a specialty?

No, general dentistry includes all aspects of oral care, including areas that are considered specialties, such as orthodontics and periodontology. Our team of doctors at Starr General Dentistry have completed continuing education above and beyond their dental school training so we can offer a wide variety of services in one convenient location.

Can I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth in fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.
