General Dentistry & Oral Hygiene
Getting professional dental care is just as important as practicing good oral hygiene. During a regular check-up, we’ll review your medical and dental history, take digital X-rays, and examine your teeth and gums. We’ll also provide you with a thorough teeth cleaning to prevent bacteria and plaque from building up.
Dr. McCoy also provides a number of general services, such as:
- Durable tooth-colored fillings to restore your tooth from decay.
- Gentle root canal therapy to relieve pain and save your damaged tooth.
- Safe tooth extractions to remove damaged, decayed, or wisdom teeth.
- Treatments for TMD, such as at-home remedies and a customized nightguard.
Your smile has the power to make a lasting first impression. Our Glen Mills practice offers several cosmetic services to cover imperfections and give you a smile that’ll light up the room. Dr. McCoy and our team will take the time to understand your smile goals and help make them a reality. We feature the following cosmetic treatments:
- Invisalign aligners as a more discreet, convenient alternative to metal braces.
- Tooth-colored, porcelain veneers to eliminate imperfections in your smile.
- Professional teeth whitening to brighten your smile up to several shades whiter.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I get a professional dental cleaning?
It’s important to schedule check-ups every six months, or twice a year, to have your teeth thoroughly cleaned by our expert dental team. This will prevent plaque and bacteria from building up and developing into more serious problems, like gum disease or tooth decay.
Is it necessary to update my X-rays once a year?
Yes, we require patients to update their X-rays once a year, depending on their individual case. This allows us to examine your oral health and whether there are signs of gum or bone infections. Taking X-rays each year can prevent a root canal infection, excessive loss of tooth structure, and even bone loss.
If I’m missing a tooth, do I really need to replace it?
If you’re missing any amount of teeth, it’s important to replace them to restore their function and complete your smile. Tooth loss can make it difficult to chew and speak properly, and may lead to future oral health problems. These include bite problems, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and possibly even more tooth loss.
What are some of the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are a natural-looking, lasting solution for missing or damaged teeth. They’re designed to match the look and feel of your teeth, so you can eat and speak with ease. Implants are the only restoration that is secured to your jaw bone, providing a durable foundation and promoting healthy bone growth.
I have chipped teeth. How can you help?
If you have a chipped tooth, Dr. McCoy can restore your smile with several cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers and same-day crowns. During your initial consultation, he’ll examine the damage and recommend the best treatment for you.
