What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of common dental problems. It is focused on maintaining optimal oral health and preventing the development of more serious dental issues. General dentistry includes routine cleanings and fillings to more complex treatments such as root canals and extractions.

Benefits of General Dentistry

One of the primary benefits of General Dentistry is early detection and prevention of dental problems. Regular check-ups allow our dentists to identify issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer in their early stages when they are easier to treat. This not only saves you from discomfort and inconvenience but can also save you money in the long run by avoiding more extensive and costly procedures.

Another benefit of General Dentistry is maintaining good oral hygiene. Regular cleanings and treatments help keep your teeth and gums healthy and free of plaque and tartar buildup. This helps prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease, all of which can lead to more serious health problems if left untreated.

Finally, General Dentistry also improves your overall quality of life. By addressing dental problems and maintaining good oral health, you can enjoy better digestion, improved speech, and a more confident smile.

Procedures Offered

A dental cleaning, also known as an oral prophylaxis, is the removal of dental plaque and tartar (calculus) from the teeth. Specialized instruments are used to gently remove these deposits without harming the teeth. First, an ultrasonic device that emits vibrations and is cooled by water is used to loosen larger pieces of tartar. Next, hand tools are used to manually remove smaller deposits and smooth the tooth surfaces. Once all the tooth surfaces have been cleaned of tartar and plaque, the teeth are polished.

Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings.  Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential components of general dentistry. During a dental check-up, the dentist examines the teeth, gums, and mouth to detect any signs of decay, gum disease or other dental problems. The dentist may also use X-rays to identify any hidden problems.

Teeth Whitening and Cleaning. Teeth cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. The dentist may use a scaler, a tool that scrapes off the plaque and tartar, or an ultrasonic device that uses high-frequency vibrations to remove the buildup. After the cleaning, the dentist may polish the teeth to remove any surface stains.

Fillings - Fillings are also a common procedure in general dentistry. Fillings are used to repair cavities or decayed teeth. The dentist removes the decayed part of the tooth and fills the cavity with a material such as composite resin or amalgam. The filling restores the tooth’s function and prevents further decay.

Bridges, Dentures, and Partial Dentures – These are used to replace missing teeth by anchoring an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth. This is a non-surgical option for patients who have one or more missing teeth. It’s a common and routine treatment option.

Root Canals - Root canal therapy is another procedure that falls under general dentistry. It is used to treat an infected or decayed tooth that has reached the pulp. During the procedure, the dentist removes the infected pulp and cleans the root canal. The canal is then filled with a material to prevent reinfection.

Extractions - Tooth extractions are done when a tooth is severely decayed or damaged beyond repair. The procedure involves numbing the area around the tooth and using forceps to remove it from the socket. After the extraction, the dentist may prescribe painkillers and advise the patient on how to care for the area.
