If you looked “general” up in a dictionary, you might find the definition includes extensive, overall, prevalent, widespread, or universal. That sums up general dentistry at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA. For Dr. Nathan Jergensen and his team, general dental care is an opportunity to improve and persevere your whole-body wellness – not just your oral health.

How can a general dentist help Hemet, CA patients stay healthier?

Everything that goes into the mouth – from the first breath of air to baby bottle, pacifier, thumb, foods, beverages, toothbrush, and dental instruments and materials – has an impact on your health.

So do millions of living organisms. Bacteria thrive in the moist, warm shelter of the mouth. They feed on debris left behind by food, producing acidic waste as they multiply. These acids are the starting point for tooth decay and gum disease, but the threat does not end there. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream, triggering systemic inflammation linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other health issues.

We can help.

Care that keeps you smiling

Here are a few of the general dentistry services you can count on for a healthy mouth that contributes to overall wellness:

  • Oral hygiene – Advice on the best products and techniques for your unique needs, and professional cleaning that eliminates bacteria, plaque, and tartar you cannot reach with brush and floss. Expect fresher breath, brighter teeth, and a comprehensive examination that helps to catch potential problems early, when they can be treated with the least discomfort and expense.
  • Oral cancer screening – It is part of every checkup at Diamond Valley Dentist, and we show you how to be on the lookout at home, too.
  • Gum disease – Effective techniques to cure gingivitis and get more advanced gum disease under control, helping you keep your teeth and keep pathogens out of your body.
  • Mouthguards – Protect your smile during sports or sleep with comfortable, custom-fit appliances.
  • Extractions – With good oral care, you may never need to have a tooth extracted. If you ever do, though, the procedure can be performed right here, with sedation, for a low-stress experience.
