General Dentistry | John D. Kernan DMD, PA - Westmont, NJ

Everyone knows that getting a basic cleaning is important. Did you know that you may be missing out on other procedures that are just as important? When you come to my office, I, John D. Kernan DMD, PA will show you all the general dentistry procedures you need.

Cleanings are usually the first thing people think of when they think of going to the dentist. Cleanings are important, but you may also need a number of other things. During your cleaning, I may find that I need to take an x-ray. X-rays can show my staff and I whether there is need for fillings. X-rays also show us the structural integrity of your teeth and can help us create a specialized dental care procedure just for you. If I, John D. Kernan DMD, PA need more information on how to care for you better, I may have my staff take a panoramic x-ray so that I can see your entire mouth.

During your general dentistry procedure, I, John D. Kernan DMD, PA will assess your teeth and check your fluoride levels. If needed, I can provide you with a fluoride treatment. If I find that you need fillings, I can offer amalgam or composite fillings. I will always walk you through the procedure and show you which filling is the best fit for your dental needs.

My staff and I are dedicated to your comfort as well as your health. We understand that general dentistry procedures can be overwhelming. I gladly offer dental health and disease education information with visual aids to make things easier to understand.

No matter the general dentistry procedure you need, I, John D. Kernan DMD, PA am here to help. Call me to set up your dental care appointment today!
