General Dentistry: what is a general dentist?

General dentists are the primary providers of dental care for all ages. A routine visit to a general dentist will include a thorough examination of your mouth, including teeth, gums, and other structures, a professional cleaning, and a discussion about your dental and overall health.

When your dentist finds tooth decay, he will recommend a filling in that tooth. These procedures, while common, are not the only services your general dentist provides.

General dentistry provides services vital to your overall health, including:

Preventive Dentistry

Regular visits to your dentist that include the following are essential to prevention.

  • Oral health exams
  • X-rays
  • Dental cleanings/scalings

Restorative Dentistry

One of the most common and effective dental restoration involves removing tooth decay and placing a filling in the affected tooth. As general dentists, we also offer the following restorative treatments:

  • dental trauma, such as broken, loosened or knocked-out teeth.
  • tooth pain and gum/periodontal disease.
  • missing teeth,
  • crowns and bridgework
  • root canal therapy
  • orthodontics
  • dental implants
  • wisdom tooth removal

Cosmetic Dentistry

General dentists can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted with cosmetic procedures. These include teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Overall Health Concerns

Your oral health can show problems in other parts of your body. An untreated oral infection can lead to poor control of diabetes, or an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. General dentists can identify these and other issues and offer treatment.

Other areas of concern that general dentists can treat are:

  • sleep apnea
  • nutritional counseling
  • tobacco cessation
  • general health and wellness
  • TMJ
