What Exactly Is
General Dentistry?

General dentists are the primary dental care providers for patients of all ages. They are responsible for performing comprehensive oral examinations, diagnosing dental issues, and developing treatment plans. Some of the key services provided in general dentistry include:

  1. Dental cleanings: Regular dental cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, help remove plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth, promoting oral hygiene and preventing gum disease.
  2. Dental fillings: General dentists use dental fillings, typically made of composite resin or amalgam, to restore teeth damaged by decay or cavities.
  3. Root canal therapy: When the dental pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, a general dentist may perform root canal therapy to remove the infected pulp, clean the root canal, and seal it to prevent further infection.
  1. Tooth extractions: General dentists may perform tooth extractions when a tooth is severely decayed, damaged, impacted, or causing overcrowding.
  2. Gum disease treatment: General dentists diagnose and treat gum diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, through procedures like scaling and root planing or prescribing antibiotics.
  3. Dental crowns and bridges: These restorative treatments are used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth, restoring function and aesthetics.
  1. Oral cancer screenings: General dentists conduct routine oral cancer screenings to detect any signs of oral cancer in the early stages.
  2. Dental X-rays: X-rays are used by general dentists to detect hidden dental problems such as tooth decay, bone loss, or impacted teeth.
