General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is an oral health subspecialty that diagnoses and treats common problems, like cavities, tooth decay, and oral trauma. 

General dentists, like Dr. Park, provide preventive care, such as teeth cleaning, and more specialized treatments, such as oral surgery. Whether you recently moved to the Fort Lee area and want to establish a dental home or have a toothache and need treatment, J Park Dental can help.

What services does general dentistry provide?

At J Park Dental, Dr. Park and her team offer various general dentistry services, including:

Preventive care
Preventive care uses a combination of routine checkups and teeth cleanings to keep your smile healthy and problem-free. If you’re concerned about cavities or gum disease, Dr. Park can recommend meals and snacks that help (rather than harm) your oral health.

Oral X-rays

Oral X-rays capture photos of your tooth roots, alveolar bone, and jaw. Dr. Park uses X-rays to diagnose oral health problems invisible to the eye, such as bone loss and tooth pulp damage.

Dental restorations 

If you damage or lose a tooth, Dr. Park and the team might recommend a restoration, such as a crown, a dental bridge, or dental implants.  Dental restorations repair severely damaged teeth, restoring your smile to its near-original condition.


A filling repairs tooth enamel damaged by decay. Before applying your filling, Dr. Park numbs your mouth with a local anesthetic and removes the decaying portion of your tooth. She then “fills” the area with tooth-colored resin, preventing further damage.

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth and/or jaw with a series of removable plastic aligners. Invisalign aligners are more convenient than traditional metal braces and provide stunning results.

Endodontics is a dental subspecialty that treats problems with the tooth pulp –– a soft substance inside your teeth that contains nerves and blood vessels. At J Park Dental, Dr. Park regularly completes endodontic procedures, such as root canal therapy and retreatment.
