Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is what we do here. We feature general dentistry solutions that will help keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking its best all through your life. This includes thorough examinations to screen for problems and to assess your teeth, gums, and mouth in general. General dentistry also includes protective measures like dental sealants and teeth cleanings to prevent dangerous plaque, tartar, and bacteria from causing disease, decay, and worse.

Can specialists practice general dentistry?

While dental specialists can practice general dentistry, most do not. A specialist has continued their training so that they can practice in a specialty such as oral surgery or endodontics, and they focus their practice in this area. You’ll get the best general dental care from a general dentist because they are used to treating a variety of problems every day.

Why should I go to a general dentist?

General dentistry focuses on preventive care designed to keep your smile as healthy as possible by stopping issues like cavities and gum disease. So if you want your smile to look and feel good, general dentistry is essential. Regular exams and cleanings are the cornerstone of preventive care. They allow our team to find potential problems in their earliest stages when they are easiest to treat.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease can be treated in a variety of ways, but the most conservative method is with a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing. This is where your dentist or hygienist removes infection caused by bacterial plaque below and around your gumline and then smooths out your tooth roots so bacteria doesn’t return. Advanced gum disease may require other procedures to rebuild recessed tissue.
