General Dentistry Is Good for Oral Health – and Overall Health

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of general dentistry. Regular dental exams and dental cleanings in our Plymouth, MI dentist office not only keep your teeth healthy – they can help keep the rest of you healthy too!

Doctor Douglas Callow on an overview of general dentistry Read Transcript

That’s because your oral health impacts your overall health. Research has linked dental decay to health problems like diabetes and heart disease. Douglas A. Callow, DDS, who was awarded membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national dental honor society, doesn’t just look for dental decay; he checks for signs of other troublesome conditions like gum disease, dry mouth, and oral cancer.

Let us help keep your family healthy with our Plymouth general dentistry services, including regular dental exams and cleanings. Call Douglas A. Callow, DDS office at 734-404-7336 to schedule an appointment at our Plymouth, MI office.

Our General Dentistry Services Are for All Ages

We offer age-appropriate general dentistry for your whole family. We focus on preventive care like dental sealants and fluoride treatments for the youngsters. As you get older, it’s more common to encounter problems like dry mouth, teeth grinding, and gum disease – all of which we can treat. For instance, we offer a special tray to combat dry mouth. And we can provide custom mouthguards to protect teeth during sports for athletes of any age.

Our patients range in age from under 3 to over 90. We especially enjoy working with young children. One look at the wall where we display photos of our happy young patients proves that! And we’re happy to offer a longer appointment time for anyone in your family who needs it.

Patient-Friendly Technology Keeps Your Mouth Healthy

We use some of the latest dental technologies to assist us with our general dentistry services:

  • DIAGNOdent uses laser fluorescence to find cavities that traditional dental tools can miss.
  • Digital X-rays provide fast and accurate images using less radiation than traditional X-rays.
  • Our intraoral camera helps us see into all your mouth’s nooks and crannies, and we can share the view with you when explaining your treatment options.
  • An ultrasonic scaler helps us remove plaque more comfortably and quickly than with traditional dental tools. It’s especially helpful for gum disease treatment.
