What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of common dental conditions by a general dentist. To become a general dentist, it is required to have three or more years of undergraduate education as well as a DMD or DDS degree. 

Dr. Jaramillo is a general dentist who diagnoses, treats, and manages your overall oral health care needs, including:

  1. Teeth cleaning
  2. Gum care
  3. Fillings
  4. Crowns
  5. Bridges
  6. Preventative exams and x-rays
  7. Oral Cancer Screenings
  8. Flouride Treatment
  9. Tooth Extraction

Dr. Jaramillo focuses mainly on general dentistry for adults.

Is It Necessary to Visit the Dentist if I  Do Not Have Any Serious Dental Symptoms?

Dr. Jaramillo recommends visiting our dental office in Midlothian, TX every six months for oral maintenance which includes routine cleanings and dental exams. Although you may not have current concerns about your teeth, these regular visits are important as they prevent any future dental problems from occurring. 

How Often Should I Go to the Dentist?

Both Dr. Jaramillo and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommend that you visit your dentist every six months. Generally speaking, the lower your risk of dental issues, the longer you can wait for your next appointment. 

What Should I Expect During My Dentist Appointment?

Here is what you can expect at your general dentistry appointment:

  1. Dr. Jaramillo will examine your teeth and may o order x-rays if necessary.
  2. The hygenist will use special tools to gently clean any tartar buildup along your gum line.
  3. Dr. Jaramillo will review your x-rays and discuss any discomfort or symptoms you may have.
  4. Dr. Jaramillo will recommend a  treatment plan if you require further care.

How Often Should I Brush & Floss My Teeth?

The American Dental Association recommends you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time with fluoridated toothpaste. It is also recommended to floss between your teeth at least once a day.

How Can I Prevent Dental Decay for My Family?

Start good oral hygiene habits now so that you can save your family time, money, and discomfort in the long run. Every family member should be brushing their teeth twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste as well as floss once a day. Here are some extra tips for avoiding tooth decay:

  1. Avoid snacking on starchy or sugary foods as well as avoid sugary or acidic beverages
  2. Brush your teeth in the morning and evenings
  3. Floss daily
  4. Visit the dentist  twice a year for regular check-ups and cleanings

Dr. Jaramillo recommends avoiding whitening toothpaste because extended use can wear down the enamel layer of your teeth. He also recommends that you rinse your mouth with water between meals to clear away food particles and acids. 

Can I Straighten My Teeth as an Adult?

Yes, you can! As an adult, it can be embarrassing to have a crooked smile, and it can have a negative effect on your oral health and self-esteem. Even adults over 50 can benefit from teeth straightening treatment from Dr. Jaramillo.
Technology has become so advanced in the dental world, and uncomfortable metal braces are no longer the only option. Products such as ClearCorrect® or Invisalign® are a pain-free, discreet way to straighten your teeth in a short period of time. Because these treatments are discreet, you can maintain a confident smile throughout your treatment. 

Give our dental office a call to see if you qualify for clear braces. 

Is Fluoride Toothpaste Safe?

Fluoride is a natural, safe element found in soil, water, and air and is often added to many water supplies around the world to help prevent cavities. Although it can be toxic if large amounts are consumed, it is safe for drinking. It’s important to never swallow your toothpaste, but using fluoride toothpaste has been proven to help protect and strengthen teeth.

Can Teeth Whitening Damage My Teeth?

At-home teeth whitening products may contain harmful chemicals that can negatively impact tooth enamel or cause tooth and gum sensitivity. 

It’s best to speak to Dr. Jaramillo about professional, in-office teeth whitening treatment for your unique smile.
