Common General and Family Dentistry Services 

Dental Examinations and Cleanings

Regular dental check-ups are essential for oral health. General and family dentists perform thorough dental examinations to assess overall oral health, check for any signs of dental issues, and perform professional teeth cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup.

Preventive Dentistry

General and family dentists emphasize preventive care to maintain oral health and prevent dental problems. This may include dental sealants to protect the teeth from cavities, fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel, and education on proper oral hygiene practices. 

Gum Disease Treatment

General and family dentists can diagnose and treat gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. They may perform deep cleanings to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line, prescribe antibiotics, or provide guidance on oral hygiene to manage gum disease.

Dental Restorations

General and family dentists can provide various restorative treatments to repair damaged or missing teeth. This may include dental crowns (caps), bridges, dentures, or implants.

Root Canal Treatment

General and family dentists can perform a root canal to save an infected or severely decayed tooth. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp from the tooth's root canals, disinfecting them, and filling them with dental material to prevent further infection.

The Benefits of General and Family Dentistry

Preventive Care

General and family dentistry emphasizes preventive measures, such as regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and oral hygiene education. By addressing oral health issues early on, potential problems can be detected and treated before they become more severe and require more extensive and costly treatments.

Early Detection of Oral Health Problems

Regular dental exams and screenings allow dentists to identify issues like tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other oral health conditions in their early stages. Early detection increases the chances of successful treatment and helps prevent the progression of oral diseases.

Oral Health Education

General and family dentists diagnose and treat oral health conditions and educate patients about proper oral hygiene techniques, nutrition, and lifestyle habits that promote good oral health. They can provide personalized advice and guidance to help patients maintain healthy teeth and gums.
