Some people may have complex dental issues that require the attention of a specialist. All people need general dentistry. It covers all the foundational services such as checkups, cleanings, and other routine care. More than that, general dentistry incorporates treatments from orthodontics, oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, and other areas of the dental profession. When you visit a highly trained and experienced general dentist like we have at Alta Canyon Dental, you get an expanded range of care that includes everything you need to stay healthy. Count on us when you need a dentist in Sandy, UT.

Featured General Dentistry Services


Preventive dentistry starts at home, where you should brush and floss your teeth as directed. To keep your teeth healthy, you should also schedule regular visits with our office for checkups and cleanings. With these we can help keep your teeth and gums free from the bacteria that cause so many dental health issues as well as identify and treat any developing issues early on.

Not all of the exams we conduct are meant to assess your teeth and gums. They can also help us detect more serious issues such as oral cancer. If you’ve had a dentist examine the underside of your tongue or manipulate your neck, that was an oral pathology exam. This is an essential part of the services we provide.

If you or a family member is experiencing a dental emergency, we’re here for you. We always attempt to see you the same day—even if you’re not already our patient. Call us immediately at 801-572-4404 for emergency dentistry.

Teeth grinding can be a conscious or unconscious habit. Whether you grind your teeth during the day, or at night, you risk wearing them down and breaking them by doing so. We can help you break that destructive habit and protect your teeth by providing you with a custom-fitted mouthguard.

When your teeth are misaligned, you can develop difficulties with eating and speaking and wear down and damage your teeth. In some cases, we’re able to correct misalignment just by trimming a small amount of enamel from the top of select teeth, rebalancing your bite and your smile.

Dentures are a time-tested and economical method for replacing missing teeth. Modern dentures are much more customizable and look more realistic than they used to be, providing even greater benefits to the wearer. We offer full dentures and partials to restore your dental function and esthetics.

Frequent headaches and a popping sound from your jaw can be an indication of problems with your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), the hinges that allow your mouth to open and close. If you experience these or other related symptoms, your jaw may be stressed, both due to physical and emotional factors. We can help your jaw muscles relax and minimize these symptoms using a customized mouthguard.

When you have an infected or damaged tooth, we make relieving your discomfort our priority. We also attempt to save a problematic tooth whenever possible. In some instances, decay or damage can be so severe that we’re unable to preserve the tooth and have to remove it. When this is the case, count on us to provide quick, gentle, precise tooth extractions.

A tooth with a deep internal infection may not always need to be extracted. With root canals, we remove the diseased tissue from inside your teeth, sanitize the area, then fill it with a special dental material. We usually finish by placing a new crown to reinforce the tooth for long-term stability and performance.

When you’re suffering from gum disease, we can eliminate the bacterial source through scaling and root planing. With scaling we go into the pockets that form between your teeth and gums to remove bacteria from below the gumline. During root planing we smooth out your tooth roots to prevent bacteria from growing in any tiny crevices.

We offer oral sedation, nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), and local anesthesia to keep you relaxed and comfortable during treatments. Your comfort is always our top concern here at Alta Canyon Dental!
