What is General Dentistry?
General dentists focus on general dental care and do not specialize in one area. General dentistry can be used to correct problems with teeth, gums, and jaw alignment. General dentists also provide endodontic services. In addition, providers can handle general dental services such as root canals, extractions, oral surgery, preventative care, periodontal treatment, cosmetic dentistry, and prosthodontics (dental implants).
Our dental office in Cheshire, CT, our dental team provides comprehensive care with preventative and painless procedures for our patients. Before you visit or schedule an appointment, make sure to check that our office is in your insurance network.

Here are some of the treatments and procedures we provide at our practice in Cheshire, CT:
Basic oral health routines are essential to begin at a young age. However, it can be a little scary when a child visits the dentist for the first time, but our team in Cheshire, CT, is here to make sure your child has a fun, comfortable experience.
Dental Exams & Cleanings
Dental exams and cleanings are essential to basic oral health, and it is recommended that you see a professional dentist like Dr. Kurtz at least twice a year. Brushing and flossing at home are great habits, but they cannot reach every little spot of the mouth. After the hygienist does an easy, thorough cleaning of your teeth, Dr. Kurtz will do a complete exam of the mouth to check for any signs of disease, cracked teeth, cavities, or tooth decay. If there are any problematic findings, Dr. Kurtz will go over the diagnosis with you and the treatment plan.
Dental Sealants & Fillings
Sealants are typically done on the back molars of children and teens to help prevent cavities due to poor oral hygiene practices. They are an excellent preventive procedure to help protect childrens’ oral health.
Fillings can be done if cavities are found in the mouth. We offer three different fillings, which can match your current tooth color to give a natural look. Dr. Kurtz can also utilize our dental laser technology to provide you with an even more comfortable experience while receiving fillings.
Dr. Kurtz will do a thorough exam of the mouth and gums, but sometimes there are dental issues that are not visible to the naked eye. Patients could be at risk for bone loss, cysts, tumors, and other problems below the gumline that need a proper diagnosis from a digital x-ray.
Whether you need a tooth pulled that has severe damage or need wisdom teeth removed, our dentist Dr. Kurtz is here to help make the process as painless as possible. If you are in pain and need a tooth extraction, contact our office at your earliest convenience at (203) 699-9705 or via our website.
Brushing and flossing routines are great for maintaining your oral health, but there is one more factor to keep your teeth strong and healthy: fluoride. Fluoride helps keep your enamel strong to fight against cavities, and if you need a little boost, we can provide fluoride treatment for you or your family.
To protect your teeth from the damage of grinding or contact sports injuries, we can create a custom mouthguard for your or your child’s needs. First, Dr. Kurtz will examine your mouth and determine which type of mouthguard is the best fit for you. We will then take an impression of your mouth and create a custom-fit mouthguard just for you.
