Germantown, MD General Dentistry

A general dentist is your primary care provider for your oral health needs. Unlike a specialist devoted to a single area, a general dentist offers a wide range of procedures, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry.

At our general dentistry practice in Germantown, MD, we evaluate, diagnose, and treat all aspects of your oral health. Thanks to advanced training and education, our dentist also offers dental implant placement and restoration and Invisalign clear braces.

Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings in Germantown

We follow the American Dental Association’s guidelines that recommend exams and teeth cleanings every six months. Even if you brush and floss like a pro and follow a healthy diet, you still need these preventive services. Gum disease and cavities can develop without any symptoms and damage your oral health before you know they exist.

When you stay current with your six-month dental exams and cleanings, we can find these hidden problems and treat them before they cause pain or damage your long-term oral health.

Tooth Fillings and Dental Crowns

If you get a cavity, our dentist in Germantown removes the decay and repairs the tooth with tooth-colored composite resin to match the white shade of your smile.

Sometimes a tooth is too decayed or broken down for a filling, and we would recommend a dental crown to protect it. We also use crowns to restore dental implants and to make cosmetic smile improvements.

Dental Implants and Bridges

We encourage our patients with missing teeth to replace them as soon as possible. Our dentist recommends dental implants because they mimic a natural tooth’s form, function, and appearance.

Dental bridges are another excellent tooth replacement if you’re missing one or two consecutive teeth and aren’t ready to commit to dental implants.

A root canal is not painful; it’s the infection in your tooth that causes your pain, and root canal treatment is the only way to relieve your discomfort and save your tooth.

Because we understand your concerns and care about your comfort and well-being, we have invested in leading-edge rotary endodontic technology. This equipment allows our dentist to complete root canals comfortably, efficiently, and with more favorable outcomes.

Same-Day Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies like toothaches, broken teeth, and lost crowns or fillings are always inconvenient and often painful. If you experience any dental emergency, call Century Dental at (301) 972-1600, and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible—the same day if you are in pain.
