Like routine maintenance on your car, general dentistry is the key to keeping your teeth in good working order. Just as your vehicle benefits from regular oil changes and fluid checks, you can keep your mouth in top health with dental exams and other general dental services.
At our McAllen, TX dentist office, our team:
- Keeps your teeth looking and feeling great with dental cleanings
- Uses treatments like fluoride applications and sealants to help prevent cavities
- Checks your teeth for signs of gum disease, teeth grinding, and other dental damage
- Uses patient-friendly technology like digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to examine you
- Treats you for conditions like dry mouth
- Advises you on nutritional changes you can make to improve your oral health and your overall health

Solve Your Dental Problems With the Latest Tech
Dr. Kenneth Baker has been a clinical researcher for 30 years and is a clinical evaluator for Dental Advisor. Thanks to his work evaluating new dental products, he is an early adopter of techniques and technologies that benefit our patients. For instance, he uses OralDNA® testing, a tool that determines if you are susceptible to gum disease. He also uses an analyzer to pinpoint causes of halitosis (bad breath). With these kinds of tools, we create individualized treatment plans to effectively address your dental issues.
Stop Teeth Grinding With a Custom Mouthguard
Teeth grinding (bruxism) is a habit that can damage your teeth so badly you’ll need restorative dental services to repair them. It can also contribute to a condition called TMJ disorder that causes jaw pain, chronic headaches, and other unpleasant symptoms. To reduce TMJ pain and prevent dental damage, Dr. Baker can fit you for a custom mouthguard.
