What Does a General Dentist Do?

As a general dentist in Mountlake Terrace, Dr. Jagow oversees all your dental care and provides the essential services your family needs to maintain healthy smiles, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry.

Whatever your oral health needs are right now, Dr. Jagow will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to help you get your oral health back on track. But you are so much more than just your teeth! Taking the time to get to know you personally helps us understand all the factors that influence your decisions about your dental care, including your family life and obligations, career, budget, and timeline.

Services a General Dentist Provides

We always start with the most conservative approach to dentistry and won’t try to sell you services that you don’t want or need. Dr. Jagow will perform an exam to evaluate your dental needs, then carefully explain what treatment you need to resolve problems and how it will benefit you.

At Terrace Creek Dental Care, you’ll find a wealth of services in one comfortable, convenient location:

  • Dental exams and cleanings
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Preventive dentistry
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Metal-free crowns and bridges
  • Root canals
  • Tooth extractions

Whether you want to maintain a healthy smile, prevent problems from occurring, or restore broken, decayed, or missing teeth, Dr. Jagow would love to be part of your plan for a healthier smile.

A Healthy Smile Starts with Prevention

Everyone needs preventive dentistry that includes dental exams and teeth cleanings at our Mountlake Terrace dental office every six months. The purpose of these routine checkups is to allow us to detect gum disease and decay in their earliest stages when we still have conservative options for treatment. 

Filling a cavity or providing treatment for gingivitis early on can spare you the cost and discomfort of toothaches and the need for more complex dental treatment in the future. Prevention also includes fluoride treatments and dental sealants for adults and children.

Because she wants you to feel fully informed about your oral health, Dr. Jagow focuses on patient education that includes you in the process. Using technology like digital x-rays and intraoral photos, she can show you why a proposed treatment is necessary. We are here to inform and guide you in making the best decisions for your oral health.

We’re Here for You If Something Goes Wrong

It’s still possible to get a cavity or break a tooth, even if you brush and floss conscientiously. If you do, we’ll provide the supportive, non-judgmental care you need to get your oral health back on track.

Using tooth-colored fillings and metal-free dental crowns, we’ll restore the health and function of the tooth and leave you with a great-looking smile. Tooth loss can happen to anyone, and Dr. Jagow offers dental bridges and implant restorations to replace missing teeth.
