General dentistry services available to Austin area patients
General dentistry focuses on the health of the mouth. Maintaining proper dental habits can greatly reduce the risk of conditions such as periodontal disease or cavities.
General dentistry encompasses many different treatments for patients in and around the Austin, TX area. Dr. E. Griffin Cole has a biocompatible approach to improving the health of the smile. Services provided in his practice include, but are not limited to:
- Cleanings – when it comes to keeping the teeth and gums clean, brushing and flossing after every meal can make a dramatic difference. However, even the most prudent of patients can still miss areas of the teeth. Our patients get a thorough cleaning performed by our dental hygienists to get even those “hard to reach” areas.
- Fillings – when cavities occur, it is important that patients see a dentist as soon as possible to have them filled. Instead of “silver” mercury-amalgam fillings, our dental team focuses on providing biocompatible options such as fillings made of composite resin or porcelain.
- Examinations – keeping the smile healthy begins with preventative care. Examinations are essential. X-rays may be taken to look at the health of the mouth where the eyes cannot see.
- Periodontal treatment – conditions such as periodontal disease or “gum disease” can be avoided with proper care of the smile. When it does develop, treatment by a skilled dentist is essential and may include scaling and root planing.
