General and Family
Maintaining good oral health is more than just whitening and brightening your smile – it’s about protecting your overall health.
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.
At Skyline Family Dentistry, our general dental services focus on education and preventative care. We serve patients of every age and background, helping each achieve healthy, lasting smiles. During your exams and cleanings, we make sure to look for signs of decay and gum disease. 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
Our full-service dental office in Bishop, CA features some of the latest technologies to provide you with all the care you need, in one office.
Family and general dentistry services at Skyline Family Dentistry include:
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the lower joints that connect your jaw to your skull. When these joints become overused or damaged, it can result in a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Using the i-CAT cone beam imaging, Dr. Overholtzer can detect jaw problems early and create a plan to alleviate the pain caused by TMJ damage.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Having trouble sleeping? You might be showing symptoms of sleep apnea, a serious breathing condition. Regain a good night’s rest by visiting our Bishop dentist for a sleep apnea diagnosis and to explore your treatment options.
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 regular visits 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 relax!
Regular Dental Checkups
and Digital X-Rays
For lasting, beautiful smiles, we recommend patients visit our office once every six months for a dental checkup. When you come in for your routine teeth cleaning and examination, 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, our experienced dental professionals will 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!
