What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry can be viewed as the foundational care for your oral health. It involves comprehensive oral exams and professional dental cleanings as well as various common dental procedures. Think of a general dentist as someone who can conveniently diagnose and treat all of your oral health issues.

How often should I have routine cleanings?

The American Dental Association recommends that patients have a professional dental cleaning and an oral examination every year. Ideally, however, you should see your dentist at least ever 6 months.

Are dental sealants worth it?

Absolutely. Dental sealants make it easier to maintain good oral health - and they reduce the incidence of cavities. They give you a layer of protection over the chewing surface of your teeth that keeps food particles and bacteria from settling in the grooves, preventing decay.

What are the most common procedures handled by a general dentist?

General dentists handle a wide range of dental procedures on a daily basis, but the most common would likely be fillings, dental crowns, dental bridges, tooth extractions, and implants.
