Prevention is truly the best medicine when it comes to your oral health. General dentistry sets the foundation for a beautiful smile. Good oral health ensures your smile looks great and functions properly. Dr. Rathjen loves helping patients realize the transformative qualities of high-quality dental care.

If it’s your first appointment with us, our team will begin with a complete exam and take digital X-rays. Depending on the condition of your smile, your first appointment may include a cleaning. No matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen a dentist, we are a judgment-free practice. Our team won’t lecture you, it will simply do what is needed to get your smile back into shape. Dr. Rathjen will create a treatment plan to address any restorative needs or cosmetic goals.

Your general dentistry treatments may include:

  • Cleanings and Exams – Your hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove tartar and plaque buildup. Our team will also perform a comprehensive exam to spot any problems in their earliest stages – or even before they happen.
  • Dry Mouth Treatment – If you have dry mouth, Dr. Rathjen will diagnose the cause and offer products to improve saliva production. Since dry mouth may signal sleep apnea, he will discuss other symptoms you are experiencing. If you do have apnea, Dr. Rathjen can coordinate treatment with a board-certified specialist.
  • Bad Breath Treatment – If you have chronic bad breath, Dr. Rathjen will identify the source of the issue, whether it’s gum disease, infection, or another problem. He can also recommend products that will leave your breath fresh.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – For infected gums, a scaling and root planing treatment can restore your gums to a more healthy state.
  • Night Guards – Dr. Rathjen can fit you for a custom-made night guard. You’ll avoid possible tooth damage and relieve jaw pain while you sleep.
