At Advanced Smile Arts, we offer a variety of general dentistry services that can help you and your family stay on top of your oral health. Below you will find descriptions of some of these services to help you learn more about how they can keep you healthy. If you have any questions regarding general dentistry services, please feel free to contact our Advanced Smile Arts.

Dental Cleanings and Exams

The foundation of our dental care is dental cleanings and exams. We use various technologies and techniques to make sure we catch any dental issues. We offer DIAGNOdent cavity detection, oral cancer screenings, digital panoramic X-rays, and more. During a routine examination, we will look for gum disease and tooth decay, and we’ll check your existing restorations. From this information, we can formulate a treatment plan if necessary. We also offer cleanings to help keep your mouth disease-free and healthy. During a routine cleaning, we will remove calculus and plaque and then polish your teeth. Call to schedule your cleaning and exam today.


Sealants are designed to protect against bacteria and other diseases- and decay-causing agents that may reside in your mouth. We paint on the sealant to act as a barrier against these harmful substances. This is a great option for kids but can be used on patients of all ages.

Fluoride Treatments and Varnishes

Fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel and reduce the risk of cavities and tooth decay. We offer both treatments and varnishes to protect your teeth. These fluoride options are great for those who are prone to cavities but can be used as a preventive measure for any patient.

Nutritional Counseling

Did you know that your diet directly affects your oral health? If you are unsure of what to eat to keep your mouth healthy, we can help. A well-balanced diet is recommended for optimal oral and overall health. Talk to Dr. Fuesting for more advice on what to feed your family.

Athletic Mouthguards

We offer mouthguards to help you or your child avoid dental injuries due to sports accidents. These will protect your child’s teeth during contact sports and help avoid the pain, hassle, and expense of a serious dental injury. We also offer soft mouthguards to protect the teeth against grinding and clenching. Learn more about this type of mouthguard on our TMJ treatment page.

Dry Mouth Treatment

If you are suffering from chronic dry mouth, we can help. Dry mouth can sometimes be caused by certain medications. We offer a variety of xylitol-based products to help with this. If you are experiencing discomfort due to chronic, unexplained dry mouth, please talk to someone at our office about scheduling an appointment.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

If you are noticing bleeding, red, tender, or swollen gums, you may be experiencing gum disease. We offer a few different nonsurgical options to help you take care of the problem and restore your oral health. The first step would be to use a deep cleaning method called scaling and root planing. This option allows us to gently remove the buildup from underneath your gums. If the situation is severe, we may also recommend employing laser dentistry to clean out your periodontal pockets. This technique is gentle and noninvasive, causing very little (if any) bleeding or discomfort. Certain medications can also be used to help get rid of bacteria. If you are noticing signs of gum disease, please get to our Danville, IL dentist office right away. We can help you avoid major damage to your jawbone tissue and eventual tooth loss.

Halitosis/Bad Breath Treatment/Saliva Testing

Halitosis, or chronic bad breath, is a common reason patients seek dental care. Chronic bad breath can be caused by a variety of factors, including the buildup of bacteria underneath your gums and near the back of your tongue. We check for this condition during our routine gum disease screenings and can treat it as part of our periodontal process.
