General Dentistry

General Dentistry Services by Comfortable Care Dentistry
General dentistry services offered by Comfortable Care Dentistry involve treating a variety of conditions that affect the teeth, mouth and gums. General dentistry involves common treatments that could fall into preventative dentistry as well as restorative dentistry categories but are more basic and common in nature so are labeled as general. Dr. Kostrzewski will serve as your first line of defense against oral health problems and he and the team at Comfortable Care Dentistry will do their best to catch problems before they arise.

If you however have a dental problem that has escalated beyond your control and you require professional dental help, the general dentistry procedures that we provide may help you refresh your smile. During your dental examination Dr. Kostrzewski will diagnose your entire mouth for potential oral health problems such as cavities, loose teeth, damaged teeth, gum disease, and to see if you may benefit from a tooth extraction such as a wisdom tooth removal.

Below you will find a list of the general dentistry procedures we perform with links to each with more detailed information.

Tooth-Colored Restorations– When a tooth has a cavity we remove the decay and place a tooth-colored composite resin filling to restore the damage. In the cases that fillings are not recommended, a crown may be required to restore your tooth to its natural form.

Wisdom Teeth Removal– Wisdom teeth are commonly removed because their eruption causes the other teeth in the mouth to be crowded and because our jaws don’t have the space to support them.

Crowns & Bridges– Crowns are used to repair extensively damaged teeth or when a filing won’t do. We use tooth-colored crowns to restore your teeth so they look and feel natural. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and are anchored to the surrounding teeth.

Dentures– Dentures are also used to replace missing teeth that cannot otherwise be repaired. They can be used to replace all missing teeth or several teeth; in the latter case they are called partials.
