General Dentistry in Clearwater, FL

General dentistry is the foundation of our Clearwater dentist office and provides the treatments you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Dr. Radosavljevic puts the patient first, believing that the best dentistry is a collaborative process between the dentist and the patient.

Dr. Radosavljevic will take the time to listen to your needs and goals and then develop a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the smile you want. Believing in “complete dentistry,” she considers the entire occlusal system, seeking to identify any underlying dental problems that may compromise long-term results. Through this process, Dr. Radosovljevic can even provide HR5 saliva testing to identify harmful oral pathogens that damage oral health.

A thorough routine dental exam with Dr. Radosovljevic typically includes:

  • Digital dental x-rays
  • Intraoral diagnostic dental imaging
  • Screening for gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer
  • Occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ)

General Dental Services

We offer various general dentistry services to meet your oral health needs. Our office provides comprehensive dentistry and focuses on the health of your entire smile.

Tooth Cleanings

Dental cleanings are crucial for your oral health. Even if you brush and floss your teeth properly at home, we have specialized dental tools that can reach areas your toothbrush can’t. Without regular dental cleanings at our office, plaque and tartar still build up in the areas you can’t clean. You’re still at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease, even if you’re brushing diligently.

Dental Fillings

Tooth decay is one of the most common dental issues for patients of all ages. It occurs when bacteria wear through the tooth enamel, causing a hole in the tooth. It compromises the tooth structure, making it weaker and sometimes causing pain. A dental filling fills the hole the bacteria make, restoring tooth strength.

Periodontal Therapy

Gum disease is a serious problem that can compromise the health of your entire body. Periodontal therapy allows us to reverse gingivitis or manage the condition if you have further stages of infection. We offer multiple solutions that are unique to your stage of gum disease.

Sedation Dentistry

We want to ensure all patients are comfortable in our dentist office. Patients with anxiety or dental fear can have a difficult time coming into the office. Sedation dentistry allows these patients to get the care they need. It also helps patients requiring intensive procedures or having bad gag reflexes.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissue in your throat collapses while sleeping, cutting off your air supply. It can have serious side effects when left untreated. For sleep apnea treatment, we utilize oral appliance therapy. The appliance repositions your jaw so the soft tissue doesn’t block the airway while sleeping.

The Importance of Preventative Care

Preventative dental care keeps your smile healthy and helps you avoid more serious dental problems. To be effective, you must care for your mouth properly at home and visit the dentist regularly.

At home, brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once daily. This prevents bacteria and food debris from building up, turning into plaque and tartar. Each time you eat or drink something other than water, bacteria and remnants are in your mouth. You can’t just rely on twice-yearly deep cleanings at the dentist to ensure that your mouth is healthy. Plaque starts building up daily.

However, you can’t rely on at-home care to keep your smile healthy. There are areas of your mouth that your toothbrush and dental floss cannot reach. Our specialized dental tools can reach all of those difficult places. We also use a polishing brush and toothpaste that gives your teeth that fresh and clean feeling when you leave our office.

But we don’t just clean your teeth at your regular appointments. We also perform a thorough oral exam. Oral health problems like oral cancer and gum disease have early warning signs that are hard to notice. Many adults have gingivitis because the symptoms don’t hurt, so they aren’t worried about them. We’re trained to recognize these early warning signs. If it can’t be seen with the naked eye, we have diagnostic technology to catch issues before they get worse.
