General Dentistry Q&A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry provides you with the services and treatments necessary to reach and maintain the highest dental health and hygiene levels. All dentists receive extensive training in general dentistry.

Finding a great general dentistry provider is one of the most important things you can do for your overall dental health. You should search for a dentist who takes the time to get to know you and listens to your needs.  

At Smile HB Dental & Orthodontics, you receive highly personalized, unrushed care designed to deliver the outcomes you need to thrive. 

What services are available within general dentistry?

Preventive care is a cornerstone of general dentistry. Thorough dental exams give your dentist the opportunity to check your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues for signs of damage, decay, or disease.

In many cases, early intervention is the best way to preserve dental health using state-of-the-art tools and techniques. Dental exams also help detect signs of oral cancer in the earliest stages, when treatment is often most effective. 

If your dentist finds an area of concern during your visit, a number of restorative dentistry options help repair or resolve the problem. You learn the pros and cons of each approach prior to making a decision that aligns with your needs. 

Some examples of available treatments include:

  • Extractions
  • Fillings
  • Root canal
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Mouthguards and night guards

While not all general dentists incorporate cosmetic dentistry into their practice, the team at Smile HB Dental & Orthodontics is proud to offer a range of cosmetic treatments that help you make the most of your smile. This is a highly customized area of practice where your input and goals shape the experience. 

How often do I need to come in for general dentistry visits?

Most adults benefit from coming in for routine dental exams once every six months. This timing ensures your dentist has the chance to detect signs of decay and disease before significant damage occurs. 

Professional cleanings are also part of the process. Your practitioner uses advanced technology to remove all traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth, including the areas below the gum line, if necessary. 

Of course, if you experience any discomfort or dental injury in between your dental exam appointments, book an emergency dentistry visit online or by phone to begin a path toward relief.
