"My patient needs were addressed professionally and respected. I have felt valued on each of my visits. Thank you."
"Every experience with Townesquare Dental has been great! I have had cavities filled, wisdom teeth removed and a skin graft done on my lower gums. They have always taken good care of me. I have always heard horror stories of skin grafts and wisdom teeth from many people and when I had mine done it wasn't a bad experience in the slightest. Everyone that I know who has their wisdom teeth out here at Townesquare Dental has had an amazing experience with little to no pain, swelling or infections afterward. I always recommend Townesquare Dental to anyone looking for more invasive oral procedures." Jordan from Idaho Falls.
The first line of defense against oral health problems
In general dentistry, the dentist is the primary care provider for patients of all ages and is responsible for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (jaw and face) parts of the body. Even though general dentists primarily provide preventative care and minor restorative therapy, they are often able to perform a wide array of other dental procedures, including some minor cosmetic treatments.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients visit their general dentist at least once every six months to ensure proper oral health and functionality. Regular oral health check-ups and maintenance help to prevent the development of serious dental problems that may require more extensive and costly treatments. General dentists are highly educated and trained in multiple facets of dentistry, providing a variety of different services for you and your family including:
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
- Gum disease (Periodontal) treatment
- Root canal therapy
- Teeth cleanings
- Dental fillings
General dentists who do not perform a certain treatment will provide you with a specialist referral.
