Visit Your General Dentist for a Beautiful Smile

At Back Bay Family Dentistry we provide comprehensive care that focuses on all your dental needs, not just your immediate concern. It’s easier to treat problems when they’re caught early on. We take our time and look closely at areas you might miss when brushing and flossing.

We offer a full line-up of general dental services for your entire family, ages 6 and up. Types of care you can receive here include:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams – Our dental hygienist will take a complete set of X-rays, a health history, and maybe some photographs of your teeth and gums. We want to get to know you, so we can help you enjoy your best smile. You’ll receive a thorough dental exam, including an oral cancer screening, and a complete teeth cleaning.
  • Preventive Treatments – Depending on the results of your dental exam, we may recommend preventive treatments to keep your smile healthy. Fluoride treatments strengthen your tooth enamel to help stop cavities. Dental sealants form a protective barrier against disease-causing bacteria.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – We have several options when it comes to restoring your gum health. Your dentist or hygienist may deep clean your gums with scaling and root planing. We may give you a medication called Perio Protect to use at home. For advanced cases, we may refer you to a specialist.
  • Professional Mouthguards – Protect your pearly whites against damage with an athletic mouthguard or a bruxism (teeth grinding) mouthguard. Our custom mouthguards provide better protection than mouthguards bought off the shelf – and are more comfortable too.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dental services, including cleanings and exams, prevent dental issues before they occur. Our team is dedicated to helping you avoid dental decay, gum disease, and even mouth injuries from sports activities or teeth grinding. Moreover, general dentistry caters to various restoration and cosmetic needs. Our general dental care promotes a healthy and attractive appearance of your smile.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Foods that are good for your body also tend to be good for your teeth. This includes fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and calcium-rich foods like cheese. With their high water and fiber content, some fruits and veggies work almost like a toothbrush to clean plaque from teeth. Nuts are a great snack, as they contain minerals that help strengthen tooth enamel and make it more resistant to cavities.

Should I get fluoride treatment?

Sugar and bacteria in your mouth form acids that eat into your tooth enamel, causing cavities. Fluoride and other minerals strengthen your enamel and help fortify it against these kinds of attacks. If you are prone to cavities, fluoride treatments can help you avoid them. Of course, it’s also important to brush and floss daily and cut down on sugary foods and drinks.

Can bad breath be a sign of illness?

Bad breath can sometimes indicate an underlying illness. Infections in the mouth can cause an unpleasant odor in your breath, and some types of cancers can also cause a distinctive type of bad breath. Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, can also create bad breath. However, the cause of your bad breath is likely something simpler than a disease, such as cavities, dry mouth, or gum disease.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar buildup in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smooths your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.
