What is general dentistry?

General dentistry allows our dental team to provide a strong foundation for lasting oral health. The treatments that are part of general dentistry include preventive measures to stop tooth decay from forming and restorative services to treat and repair damage and disease. We provide excellent general dentistry in Marietta, Georgia to help you maintain and improve your oral health.

When should I visit the dentist?

We suggest coming in to see our talented dentist, Dr. James M. Kinney, once every six months. This allows us to consistently take care of your smile and diagnose any degenerative conditions early on when treatment methods are easier and more affordable. Outside of your routine visits to our office, we encourage you to call our dental office if you are experiencing any of the following signs of tooth decay or dental disease:

  • Toothaches or tooth pain, especially when biting or chewing
  • Bleeding gums
  • Tender, swollen, or red gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose or lost dental fillings or restorations
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Overcrowded or misaligned teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • A swollen or painful jaw

Our goal is to help you achieve optimal oral health by utilizing high-quality dental treatments and the latest dental technology and techniques. If you are due for a visit to the dentist, we invite you to call and schedule an appointment with Dr. James M. Kinney today. We look forward to serving your smile!
