All staff members are very nice. I came in after having neck surgery. Range of motion wasn’t normal for me. They worked on it to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Will be going back again.

Benefits of General Dentistry

Benefits of General Dentistrybenefits of general dentistry

When you hear the words general dentistry, it also means preventative care. This is the area of dentistry that includes dental exams and dental cleanings, as well as any follow up treatment required. Chesterfield Family & Cosmetic Dental Center in Springfield, MO encourages all our patients to discover the many benefits of general dentistry and make plans for their own care.

As your preferred dentist in Springfield, we offer a wide array of preventative dentistry options. They include:

  • Dental exams
  • Dental cleanings
  • Sealants and tooth decay prevention
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Fillings
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Root canals
  • Extractions
  • Implants
  • Bonding

This demonstrates that general dentistry covers almost any possible need, and that the benefits of general dentistry include everything from improved oral health to the elimination of decay or discomfort.

The Importance of General Dentistry

When we focus on the benefits of general dentistry, it is necessary to also consider the overall importance of it. Let’s just use a single patient as a simple illustration. This patient comes in twice per year to enjoy the benefits of general dentistry care. They have a cleaning and exam, and periodically there are some issues that pop up. They might need a filling or they may need treatment for symptoms that could lead to gum disease. They have those done promptly and live free of pain or discomfort, using their teeth fully and following a simple daily routine of brushing and flossing.

What are the benefits of general dentistry for this patient, apart from the freedom of any sort of pain from decay or disease? They never have to worry about serious threats like oral cancer, gum disease, TMJ and more. Their frequent treatments enable us to identify any threats. This also means that one of the benefits is that the cost of their dental care remains under control. After all, it is neglect that is expensive…not dentistry!

Of course, there are also the cosmetic benefits that come from your general and preventative care. After all, each cleaning restores your teeth to a much brighter and healthier appearance. Here too, you can enjoy long lasting benefits from a single exam and cleaning.

Experience the Benefits of General Dentistry

Happy Patients

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
