General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry refers to various preventive and restorative procedures to keep one’s oral health at its strongest. Preventive services aim to circumvent oral health issues by staying one step ahead of the curve. At-home activities, such as brushing and flossing your teeth, aid in this process. Experts in the clinic use tools to deep clean your teeth and record your health.

Specialized general dentistry equipment provides professionals with a deep, working knowledge of your oral health. X-Rays, digital imagery, and several handheld technologies allow for a safe and effective visit. 

Everyone, at some point in their life, requires a restorative service. Restorative procedures help treat an issue after it’s identified. Several examples of restorative services include cavity treatment, general injury repair, and treatment of dental disease. More advanced forms of general dentistry include root canals and fittings for implants.


Why is general dentistry important?

Without ample care, your teeth and gums are at risk for various forms of oral disease. General dentistry services help prevent conditions such as:

  • Cavities
  • Periodontal disease
  • Chipped, brittle teeth
  • Sensitivity
  • Cracked teeth
  • Infection

The development of poor oral health impacts your overall health and the development of non-oral ailments. Poor oral health increases cardiovascular disease, endocarditis, and pneumonia risk. 

Other conditions, such as diabetes and osteoporosis, increase your risk for oral disease. Regularly scheduled general dentistry appointments monitor your health and help prevent issues.


What are the risks associated with general dentistry?

Risks of general dentistry vary depending on the procedures and treatments being performed. You may experience minimal discomfort and bleeding during cleanings and regular check-ups. More invasive procedures, such as cavity treatment and root canals, may create slight pain and numbness from local anesthesia use.  


How often should you seek general dentistry services?

General dentistry appointments should occur on regular schedule of once every six months. Furthermore, you should seek care whenever a change or symptom develops. Maintaining a regular schedule with your provider and practicing effective at-home oral management prevents dental disease.
