General Dentistry

General dentistry includes the essential and routine services that our patients need to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Using these services, Dr. John Murfree can put together a personalized treatment plan for you, no matter what your current dental needs are.

Since 2009, Dr. Murfree has provided quality dentistry to patients in Murfreesboro and understands what they need to have a great experience. Our friendly and supportive environment makes it easy to receive quality dentistry, whether you are an oral health superstar or have some catching up to do.

What Does a General Dentist Do?

Your general dentist is like a primary care doctor for your dental needs. Dr. Murfree is the first person you turn to with any dental need you have, and he will ensure you receive the appropriate care. Since he has had advanced training in many areas of dentistry, we rarely need to refer patients out for treatment.

We commonly treat cavities, gum disease, and infected, broken, or missing teeth. The services we offer at our Murfreesboro dental office include:

  • Dental exams
  • Teeth cleanings
  • Digital x-rays
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Dentures and partials
  • Root canals
  • Tooth extractions
  • Gum disease treatment

Dental emergencies are common and can happen to anyone. If and when they do, we provide emergency dentistry so that you always know you have a familiar, trusted professional to turn to.

Dental Exams and Cleanings Twice a Year

Two of the most crucial services we provide are dental exams and cleanings every six months, which fall under the category of prevention. It is far easier on you, your oral health, and your budget to nip problems in the bud rather than trying to fix them after they’ve damaged your smile.

These appointments are a perfect time to let us know about any concerns or questions you have. Our Murfreesboro dentist and hygienists can check in with you, see if there have been any changes since your last appointment, and plan treatment if necessary.

Personalized Treatment Plans

One thing we do really well here at Murfree Dental is making connections with our patients. We find that each has their personal dental needs and unique set of circumstances, whether it’s family issues, career concerns, or financial limitations. We want to learn about your priorities and desires for your smile and anything that affects your decisions about the dentistry you receive.

If you need treatment to get your oral health back up to par, Dr. Murfree will explain in detail why and how it will help you. If there are treatment options, we’ll choose the most conservative first and work with whatever unique financial needs you have.

It’s important to us that you feel comfortable with the decisions you make about your dentistry, and we’ll make sure you have all the information you need to do so.
