Preventive and General Dentistry in Lansing, MI

Preventive Dentistry

The American Dental Association recommends at least two dental visits per year to lower your risks for oral health conditions like cavities and periodontal disease. Your dentist in Lansing agrees with this recommendation, but we may further customize your preventive schedule to meet your unique needs.

Regular checkups in our dental office help you realize a healthy smile, and these checkups include professional teeth cleanings, oral exams, periodic radiographs, and oral cancer screenings. These measures are crucial to maintaining excellent oral health. And our dental team is here to assist you in making dentistry enjoyable and even relaxing!

For children who are prone to cavities, ask your child’s dentist in Lansing about dental sealants and fluoride treatments.

General Dentistry

General dentistry restores your oral health when you have a complication—meaning anything from tooth-colored fillings to periodontal disease treatment, from dental crowns to root canal therapy.  

Our general dentistry also includes tooth replacement options:

  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures and partials
  • Dental implants

At Mark M. Johnston, DDS, we believe that tooth replacement is crucial—not only for your self-esteem but for your chewing force, jaw health, and bite alignment.

When your bite is off, it can lead to enamel deterioration or worn teeth, which can mean cavities and tooth fractures in the future.

A Partnership with Your Lansing, MI Dentist

For our part, we provide preventive and general dentistry services to help you achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums for life. On your end, we recommend brushing and flossing at least twice per day between dental checkups and teeth cleanings.

Between the skill of our dental team and your strict regimen, you should look forward to a clean bill of health every time you visit the dentist.
