What general dentistry services are available at Gentle Dentistry of Columbus?

Drs. Devon Paris and Laura Watterson are pleased to offer the following solutions for helping patients achieve and maintain oral health and wellness:

  • Regular dental checkups. Dental evaluations are a critical part of a preventative care plan. These evaluations allow the team at Gentle Dentistry of Columbus to diagnose and treat any issues before they become more serious.
  • Teeth cleanings. Regular teeth cleanings performed by our dental hygienists remove plaque, calculus (tartar), and bacteria from the surface of your teeth that cannot be removed with brushing alone. Cleanings also help prevent gum disease and other dental issues and allow our team to check dental hygiene, looking for early signs of decay and disease.
  • Restorative dentistry. Our dentists offer fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, implants, and denture services to repair damaged teeth or replace missing teeth to restore oral health and functionality. As soon as teeth are extracted or lost, they should be replaced to avoid shifting of the natural bite and possible gapping of the teeth in the dental arch.
  • Education. During these appointments, our providers and dental hygienists can educate you on taking care of your smile daily. Drs. Devon Paris and Laura Watterson recommend products you can use to clean the teeth and gums, including electric toothbrushes, water flossers, specialized toothpaste, and even mouthwashes.

How often do I need a regular dental checkup?

Our team at Gentle Dentistry of Columbus encourages Columbus, Georgia, area patients to follow the recommendations of the ADA or the American Dental Association. This organization strongly encourages patients of all ages to see their dentist at least twice a year, or every six months, for an evaluation and professional teeth cleaning. This reduces the risk of certain conditions becoming severe and problematic.
