What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry, also called preventative dentistry, includes services such as dental cleanings, sealants and fluoride treatment.
Regular visits to Den-Care Smile Center are essential for overall health and self-esteem. Not only is your smile one of the first things that others notice about you, but taking care of your teeth and gums can have a positive effect on the rest of your body’s health. The mouth is the gateway to the entire body, it also provides an ideal breeding ground for bacteria when not taken care of properly. With a home hygiene routine and the treatments that are afforded with general dentistry, you can keep bacteria at bay and make sure your smile looks fresh and radiant.
The best dentistry is said to be preventive in nature, meaning it is a close partnership between you and your dentist to make sure that decay and other tooth problems are identified and treated before they become a chronic problem. Some of the fundamentals of general dentistry are regular checkups and cleanings. During a checkup, a dentist can assess the state of your oral health, including your teeth, gums, and bones. If there are any changes from your last visit, this can be investigated further with the use of X-rays or other diagnostic techniques. A thorough dental cleaning is then administered to rid your mouth of harmful bacteria and plaque build-up that can lead to periodontal disease.
Other factors that may weigh into a general dentistry practice include cosmetic issues. If you do lose teeth, or if they have grown dull or stained over time, there are a number of different procedures that can now be performed that can have a dramatic effect on your appearance. Porcelain Veneers, dental implants, crowns, and tooth whitening are all cosmetic procedures that are safe, effective and can give you a healthy, youthful smile.
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take necessary x-rays, which include panoramic x-rays for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth. A thorough cleaning (prophylaxis) is also recommended at the first visit.
