General dentists also help manage your overall oral health by providing education and preventive care such as cleanings, X-rays, and periodontal treatments.

The team at Daniella Perez Simon, DMD offers a full suite of general dentistry services, including:
The easiest way to prevent tooth decay and gum disease is to visit the dentist every six months for a professional exam and cleaning. Preventive care also includes regular oral X-rays, nutrition advice, and education to improve your overall oral health and well-being.
Bridges are dental prosthetics used to fill a space caused by one or more missing teeth. If you have natural teeth on both sides of a gap, your Dr. Daniella Perez Simon DMD provider may recommend a traditional dental bridge. The team also offers Maryland bridges, cantilever bridges, and implant-supported bridges.
A root canal is a type of oral surgery designed to preserve a badly decayed or infected tooth. During a root canal, your dentist carefully removes inflamed tooth pulp and bacteria from your affected tooth. After removing the infection, she rinses your root canal with an antiseptic solution, fills the space with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha, and covers your affected tooth with an all-ceramic crown.
The team at Daniella Perez Simon, DMD also offers treatment for periodontitis or gum disease. In addition to traditional cleanings, the team also performs more invasive treatments such as scaling and root planing (SRP). Your dentist might also prescribe Arestin®, a prescription medication that targets periodontal bacteria to fight infection.
If you grind your teeth or play sports, you might want to consider a mouthguard. Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, the team can recommend an oral appliance that aligns with your individual needs.
