Howard County Smiles Family Dentistry
Dentist, Dental Implant, general dentist
Ellicott City dentist Dr. Ray Becker offers a full range of general dentistry services for adults and children. In addition, he offers advanced cosmetic dentistry and restorative dental treatments. Routine preventive care is at the foundation of our dental practice and is essential to make sure oral health problems — from tooth decay to oral cancer — are detected early and treated in a timely manner.
Some individuals may need to see the dentist more often than others to stay on top of problems like plaque buildup and gum disease, but the American Dental Association recommends everyone should go at least twice per year.
General Dentistry – What to Expect
Dr. Becker believes that the best dentistry is a collaborative process between the dentist and patient. Dr. Becker will take time to listen to your needs and goals and then develop a personalized treatment plan to help get the smile you want.
Our examinations are completely thorough and help us to identify underlying problems that can cause functional and cosmetic dentistry concerns. We have incorporated digital technology to make your experience more pleasant while delivering accurate information for diagnosis and treatment.
A dental exam with Dr. Becker typically includes:
Digital dental x-rays
Other diagnostic dental imaging
Screening for gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer
Occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ)
