What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry addresses ongoing oral healthcare needs. You can think of your general dentist as your primary dental healthcare provider. They can perform most services in-house but may refer you to a specialist in particular cases. If you have any questions or concerns about your oral health, bring them up with your general dentist first.

Benefits of General Dentistry

Protect Your Oral Health

Regular cleanings, X-rays, and exams allow your dentist to track your oral health and prevent future problems. Early diagnosis helps to make treatment quicker and more efficient, preserving your teeth for long, useful life.

Boost Your Overall Health

Researchers link poor oral health to many systemic issues, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and preterm birth.

Provide Home Care Instruction

General dentists help their patients learn to care for their teeth at home properly. Dentists and their assistants provide brushing and flossing techniques and inspiration to create healthy habits.

Prevent Gum Disease

Gum disease can endanger your teeth when it is left unchecked. Regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, keeping gums healthy for years. Periodontal procedures can slow the progress of gum disease.

Prevent Tooth Decay

Tooth decay affects patients of all ages. Decay can eventually lead to tooth loss. Patients receiving twice-annual cleanings and proper home care instructions are less likely to exhibit tooth decay.

Comprehensive Evaluation / Oral Examination

Comprehensive Evaluation

Twice a year, the dentist will perform a comprehensive oral exam. They will check for signs of oral cancer and other abnormalities in the head, mouth, and neck.

Dental Cleaning

Dental Cleaning

We recommend dental cleanings every six months for the best results. Cleanings remove plaque and tartar, lowering your chance of developing gum disease and tooth decay.

Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Made of a safe resin material, dental sealants are applied to the surfaces of teeth (commonly permanent molars) to prevent cavities. Once the teeth are prepared, the sealant is painted directly onto the chewing surface of each tooth and then hardens. The sealant material fills in the crevices of a tooth and “seals” off the tooth from cavity-causing agents like food and plaque. Sealants are applied in one visit.

Fluoride Treatment

Flouride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural substance that helps strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are administered at this office as an important component of dental treatment. The fluoride is applied to the teeth in a gel, foam, or varnish form.

Custom Oral Appliances

Custom Oral Appliances

Our office can fabricate custom oral appliances that can protect your teeth and gums during sports, alleviate sleep apnea symptoms to provide an open airway while you sleep, or relieve stress on the temporomandibular joint caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planning
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure used to treat gum disease. During the scaling process, specialized dental instruments are used to remove dental plaque and calculus from beneath the gums. Planing is the procedure used to smooth the tooth roots after the scaling process. Root planing helps the gums heal and reattach themselves to a cleaner and smoother root surface.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

Root canals are most often necessary when decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected. When root canal therapy is performed, infected or inflamed pulp is removed from the tooth chamber. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and disinfected before being filled and sealed to limit the possibility of future infection. Soon after the root canal is performed, the tooth is restored with a dental crown or filling to protect the tooth and restore normal tooth function.


Extraction Photo

If a general dentist cannot save a tooth, sometimes they must extract it. We provide quick, gentle extractions.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-ray Image on Tablet

Digital X-rays provide much more detail than traditional film X-rays while using less radiation. It is easy to share these images with the patient, explaining diagnoses and allowing the patient to see the results of their oral care habits.


Dental Fillings

We offer composite and metal fillings. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and blend in with your teeth shade. Metal fillings are safe, robust, and appropriate for larger cavities in certain circumstances.

Frequently Asked Questions About General Dentistry

When should I see the dentist?
You should see the dentist twice yearly for scheduled cleanings and exams and whenever you are concerned about your dental health. Don't delay a dental visit if you notice something has changed or is causing pain. Early treatment is less complex and less expensive until waiting for a dental emergency.
What happens if I skip dental visits?
If you do not visit the dentist as recommended, you may develop more tooth decay and gum disease. Researchers link tooth decay to a lack of positive oral care habits. Gum disease results when plaque turns into a hard substance called tartar that extends below the gumline. The gums form deep pockets, leading to root exposure and tooth loss. Only a professional cleaning can remove tartar.
What is the connection between my oral and overall health?
Oral health affects overall health due to inflammation. This condition develops due to the constant low-grade infections that characterize gum disease and tooth decay. Scientific studies have shown direct correlation between oral health and cardiovascular and other health problems.
Are digital X-rays safe for kids?
Digital X-rays are safe for patients of all ages. We take radiographs only as needed.
