What Is General Dentistry? A Brief Overview

So, what is general dentistry?

Well, you don’t have to go to the dentist only to address the most serious oral hygiene issues.

Your average tooth troubles may not seem like much, but over time, they can become a nuisance. Even if nothing is wrong with your teeth, you still have to be sure that your oral hygiene is the best it can be – this is where general dentistry comes into play. 

Just as you must brush your teeth twice daily and use oral floss to ensure good oral hygiene, you also need to see your dentist every few months for the same reason. The time you spare from your busy schedule for a general dentistry checkup will be worth it!

Your general dentistry checkup will cover the status of your:

  • Gums
  • Root canals
  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Bridges

Plus, they’ll also give you specific instructions on how you can improve your oral hygiene.

Hopefully, this answers: “What is a general dentist?”
