General Dentistry

To maintain optimal oral health, individuals require routine professional dental care in addition to practicing good oral hygiene at home.

As general dentists, Ruth E. Bailey and Kasey R. Sliger offer every service from dental cleanings to advanced biomimetic dentistry.

We perform virtually every dental procedure at our Knoxville, TN, practice to care for your family's ever-evolving general dentistry needs.

Brushing & Flossing Aren't Enough Why You Need to See a Dentist

Prevent Disease

During routine appointments, our dentists can detect any issues that are not readily apparent. Treating problems before they progress helps keep your dental health in check, prevent future problems such as gum disease and tooth decay, and save you money in the long run.

Improve Your Health

Even if you are diligent with brushing and flossing at home, bacteria levels still rise over time. A professional cleaning with your dental hygienist will remove plaque, tartar, and debris from hard-to-reach areas. Because your overall health is directly tied to your oral health, a healthier smile can also reduce the risk of serious diseases.

Learn Proper Techniques

During your consultation, one of our general dentists can check your brushing and flossing techniques and offer advice. Our tips and tricks can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for many years to come.

Frequently Performed General Dentistry Treatments

In some cases, your visit to a general dentist may simply consist of a dental exam and professional cleaning. If we identify any issues during your exam, we may recommend additional treatments to improve your oral wellness, such as: 

Dental Fillings

Most cavities can be quickly and painlessly treated with dental fillings. At our Knoxville, TN, practice, we use biomimetic materials to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible. Fillings can be completed in just a single office visit in about one hour.

Dental Crowns

Patients with more significant decay may require a dental crown. This custom restoration fits over the whole tooth, providing strength and reinforcement. If you are missing a tooth, we can also provide an implant-supported restoration to protect your smile from the consequences of tooth loss.

Root Canal Therapy

If dental decay reaches the pulp chamber of the tooth, root canal therapy may be necessary to save the tooth from extraction. During this procedure, one of our dentists will remove the infected pulp then fill the inside of the tooth with a restorative material. Finally, the tooth is sealed with a filling or crown.

Periodontal Treatment

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. Our Knoxville general dentists provide periodontal therapy using advanced dental lasers to help you or your child improve your periodontal health. Gum disease treatment with dental lasers is more comfortable for the patient and offers a quicker recovery time compared to traditional methods.

T-Scan Occlusal Therapy

A dysfunctional bite can lead to oral health issues such as eroded teeth, bruxism, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Our doctors use T-Scan® digital bite analysis to assess your bite by determining how much force is being placed on each tooth when you bite down. If issues are detected, our dentists can make small adjustments to the surface of your affected teeth to improve your bite. Diagnosis and treatment can be completed in one appointment.

We Offer Biomimetic Dentistry Minimally Invasive & Highly Effective Treatment

In addition to general dentistry services, our Knoxville, TN, dentistry practice offers restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures if you need to rehabilitate or improve the appearance of your smile. When performing restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures, we use a biomimetic approach to improve the health and appearance of your teeth in the most minimally invasive, natural-looking way possible.

Patients who want to take their smile to the next level may choose from cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and gum contouring. No matter what procedure you choose, we will use a biomimetic approach to perform conservative dental care using advanced materials that yield long-lasting and lifelike results.
