What is General Dentistry?
As its name suggests, general dentistry involves many different aspects of dentistry. Treatments may be preventative, such as routine dental cleanings - or they may include treatment for cavities, gum disease, cracked teeth, and so forth.
Diagnosis and treatment plan development play a large role in general dentistry. Not only is it used to treat the issue at hand, but also can involve some restorative, endodontic, and cosmetic procedures, too.
Benefits of General Dentistry
General dentistry is used to help individuals maintain their oral health. Many times this comes down to the basics - taking the time to teach patients the proper way to care for teeth so that teeth and gums can remain healthy and major dental concerns can be avoided.
Beyond the basics, there are many other benefits that stem from general dentistry, including:
- Prevention. With regular, routine cleanings you can prevent the buildup of bacteria and remove stains, keeping the teeth safe from cavities, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues.
- Evaluation. Along with regular cleanings, comprehensive oral examinations can help to reduce the chance of complex dental issues by addressing any areas of concern as soon as possible.
- Restoration. Any dental issues that the dentist does find can be addressed and restored quickly. This means protecting your teeth - and their appearance - before the situation gets worse.
- Better Overall Health. Since the two are related, when you take care of your oral health, you are giving yourself the gift of better overall health.
