What is a General Dentist?
General dentistry encompasses all routine dental work, including examinations, cleanings and dental restoration. It promotes oral health and the general well-being of your mouth and connected systems, helping to treat or prevent gum disease, tooth decay and more.
Importance of General Dentistry
It’s recommended that you visit the general dentist at least twice a year for an examination and tooth cleaning. This is important for several reasons:
- Professional cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis or prophy, is more thorough than what you can achieve on your own at home.
- The dentist can carefully examine your teeth and gums and identify potential problems before they develop.
- Problems can be treated at an early stage before damage has a chance to spread.
- Your dentist can identify cosmetic and preventative treatments that will protect the long-term health and appearance of your smile.
All patients have different needs. If you are at risk for oral health problems due to diabetes, poor immune response, existing gum disease, and other factors, you may need to visit the dentist more often. We can help you identify the best solutions for your individual situation and provide guidelines for home dental care to better protect your teeth between visits.
