General dentistry serves as the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. General dentistry is a part of ongoing preventative dental care, especially at routine appointments.
At regular visits, patients benefit from routine dental exams, tooth cleanings, and dental x-rays.
In Dr. Kalochie’s office, patients receive preventative care against future dental problems. Visiting the dentist regularly can help you to avoid the development of more complex oral health issues and is important for patients of all ages.
In addition to routine care, Dr. Kalochie offers restorative and cosmetic dental treatments to meet your needs in our Yardley, PA, office.
With general dental care, Dr. Kalochie can prevent tooth decay or damage, treat dental infections, and address dental emergencies. In addition, general dental services can preserve the teeth and gums for years of healthy smiles.

Composite Dental Fillings in Yardley
Dr. Kalochie places white dental fillings which are made of a high-quality composite resin material. Used to treat tooth decay or tooth damage, composite fillings are an essential general dental treatment in the maintenance of your smile for a lifetime.
The benefits of white fillings include:
- Natural aesthetics: color-matched to your smile, a white filling will not detract from your appearance but complement it while addressing your dental concern.
- Metal-free dental treatment: there is no need to be concerned about a metal allergy or the leaching of mercury when using composite materials to treat your tooth decay.
- Stable results: the ability of composite resins to create a stable and lasting seal with your existing tooth structure provides years of prevention against further decay or damage.
We can also provide you with a dental crown if fillings are not what you want. Dr. Kalochie works with Synergy Dental Lab in Norfolk, VA, to create high-quality custom dental crowns.
Dr. Kalochie provides periodontal disease treatment for patients that suffer from symptoms of gum disease. If you have gum inflammation or bleeding gums, you need to see a periodontist before it gets worst.
General Dental FAQs
Do you have questions about general dental services? Read answers to these common questions to learn more:
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure that removes decay from the tooth. Root canals treat patients with cavities or decay that affects the dental pulp. The dental pulp is made up of nerves, blood vessels, and other connective tissues. We need to remove the infected pulp to save the tooth structure.
After removing the pulp, we clean the tooth chamber and then seal the tooth with a dental filling. We can also provide a dental crown for patients who require extra support.
Are dental fillings painful?
Dr. Kalochie uses a local anesthetic for placing a dental filling. She makes sure that each of her patients feels comfortable during their treatment for tooth decay. Dental fillings are typically a simple procedure performed in one visit and will support the integrity of your tooth and long-term dental health.
What are dental emergencies?
Dental emergencies are oral health problems that require prompt care. If you have just lost a tooth, experience sudden severe tooth pain, or break a dental bridge or denture, we can help. Dr. Kalochie and her dental team offer immediate dental care for patients with dental emergencies.
