General dentistry is the foundation of your dental care in our Truckee dentist office. Dr. Jason Baldwin and our dental care team plan an emphasis on disease prevention and offer dental care that is personalized the unique needs of each patient. Dr. Baldwin takes the time to evaluate your dental health during routine dental visits in an effort to get to know you as an individual and to identify your risk factors for common dental concerns.
Dr. Baldwin provides advanced treatments and procedures to address a wide range of dental concerns, but disease prevention and routine care are the foundation of lifelong dental health. We recommend that all patients visit with us twice a year for a thorough exam and professional teeth cleaning, some more than that if they have persistent gum disease.
Routine visits with us provide an important opportunity for our dental care team in Truckee to look for the early signs of disease and decay- before they have become a complex problem that may require restorative dental care to resolve. During your visit we routinely screen for:
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Oral cancer
- TMJ disorders and malocclusion
There is a wide range of overall health concerns that often have early oral symptoms which are noticeable when you visit us regularly. Changes in the appearance of oral tissues can be the early indicator of developing disease and Dr. Baldwin will make the appropriate recommendations for dental treatment or a referral to your physician for follow-up care.
General dentistry services we offer include:
- Mercury-free dental fillings
- Periodontal Therapy
- Sedation Dentistry
- Root Canals
- Tooth Extractions
- Dental cleanings
Regular dental care can often mean that conservative treatment can be used to address developing concerns and to prevent tooth damage and other problems impacting the health and function of your natural smile.
Dental Anxiety? No problem
Dr. Baldwin welcomes patients who are suffering from poor oral health as a result of a fear of visiting the dentist. Our calm, relaxing office atmosphere is designed to make you feel at home, without the typical look, feel, and smells often associated with a dental practice.
We take the time necessary to understand the cause of your anxiety and find appropriate relaxation techniques to calm your fears and boost your confidence. Dr. Baldwin also offers dental sedation options for those who desire to be awake but relaxed during treatment.
Why Maintain Good Oral Health?
The benefits of a healthy smile go beyond the teeth and gums, supporting your physical well-being in many ways. Poor oral health has been proven to increase the risk of developing cardiovascular and systemic diseases, both of which are linked to inflammation in the body as a result of harmful bacteria. These bacteria can enter the bloodstream when the gums are compromised by periodontal disease, increasing your risk of health problems developing or becoming more severe if they already exist.
Our team will make every effort to get to know you and provide personalized oral hygiene advice to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy between visits, addressing your unique needs and emphasizing the importance of a healthy diet.
