What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of common dental conditions that affect the teeth, gums, and mouth. We are trained to provide a wide range of dental services, from routine cleanings and check-ups to more complex procedures, such as fillings, root canals, extractions, and crowns. They also provide education and advice on maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems.
General dentistry plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health, as dental problems can lead to a variety of health issues, such as gum disease, tooth loss, and even heart disease. Regular visits can help identify dental problems early on and prevent them from becoming more serious. We often work closely with other dental specialists, such as orthodontists, periodontists, and oral surgeons, to provide comprehensive care for our patients.
Why is General Dentistry important?
You can think of general dentistry as an important part of your overall dental health. Corrective and restorative procedures are necessary to remove decay and restore your smile. Preventative treatment is necessary in stopping the onset of decay in order to maintain a smile that’s bright and beautiful. Each patient will receive different treatments according to their dental health and needs.
What procedures are involved in General Dentistry?
We offer most general dental procedures to help you achieve a lasting smile. To determine what type of procedure is needed, you’ll come in for a consultation and exam. Some of the most common procedures performed regarding general dentistry include:
Fixed bridges and crowns
Cleanings and exams
What can you expect during a routine General Dentistry appointment?
To begin treatment, you’ll need to schedule an appointment to be seen by one of our doctors. They will conduct a visual exam as well as take x-rays to look at the underlying health of your teeth, bone, and gums. A cleaning will be done to remove buildup from the teeth before additional procedures can be performed. You will then be given a personalized treatment plan that helps to correct and restore your smile. Each patient will need varying work simply because no two smiles are alike. We work to provide you with the dental care that you need at a price that you are going to be able to afford when visiting our office.
