General and Family
Maintaining good oral health is more than just whitening and brightening your smile. Chronic inflammation in the mouth, which is a common cause of toothaches and other oral health problems, can lead to a host of adverse side effects throughout the body. Studies show that cardiovascular disease, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes and low birth weight are often the direct result of inflammation.
Our general dentistry services focus on education and preventative care. We serve patients of every age and background, and during our exams and cleanings, we make sure to look for signs of disease-causing inflammation. If you are exhibiting symptoms or are at risk, the Skyline Family Dentistry team will always act quickly to prevent further health problems from arising.
All Your General Dentistry Needs
Some of our general dentistry services include:
Your temporomandibular joints are the lower joints that connect your jaw to your skull. When these joints become overused, it can result in a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Using the i-CAT we can detect jaw problems early and create a plan to combat TMJ overuse and keep your jaw healthy.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you’re having trouble sleeping, you can receive meaningful help from your dentist. We have the training and technology to help patients who are suffering from sleep apnea. Our i-CAT technology can help us diagnose your problem and help you breathe better while you sleep.
Sedation Dentistry Treatments
If you’re overcome with anxiety when you first sit down in the dentist’s chair, you’re not alone. Many patients experience what we call “dental anxiety,” and this is the primary reason that people avoid scheduling their dentist visit every 6 months. Dr. Overholtzer is committed to making each of his patients feel comfortable when they enter his office, which is why he offers a variety of sedation dentistry treatments. We can fix your oral health and make your smile sparkle—all while you snooze away!
Regular Dental Checkups
and Digital X-Rays
We recommend that each patient come into our office once every six months for a dental checkup. When you come in for a general dentistry appointment, Dr. Overholtzer will check your teeth personally to ensure that they are healthy and strong. Using digital x-rays allow us to detect problems in their earliest stage, when they are the easiest to treat.
Professional Dental Cleanings
Professional dental cleanings play a pivotal role in your dental hygiene and preventative care. During a professional cleaning, we will be able to remove plaque and tartar buildup to keep your mouth feeling fresher and to prevent periodontal disease. Patients love how smooth and clean their teeth feel after a general appointment.
