What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a wide range of dental conditions, as well as the maintenance of overall oral health for patients of all ages.This comprehensive care from a general dentist is usually the only source of care patients require for their dental needs. There are several different dental specialties, but general dentistry encompasses the basics of these specialties.
What does family dentistry offer?
Here at our dental practice, Dr. Smith provides his patients with regular checkups for their gums and teeth. It is our passion to bring healthy smiles to the whole family. We also provide other routine services such as dental cleanings, fluoride treatment, dental x-rays and much more. For family members with teeth that have been worn out or damaged over time, we also have teeth scaling and teeth polishing procedures available.
How often should I visit Dr. Smith?
According to the American Dental Association, it is recommended to visit your dentist twice every year. With this, Dr. Smith also highly recommends that his patients have a dental check-up every six months for the maintenance of their teeth’s health and appearance. In addition, individuals who smoke or have any other lifestyle habits that may have a detrimental effect on the teeth and gums are advised to visit the office once every three months.
Dr. Smith suggests that a child sees a dentist as soon as his or her first tooth erupts. The sooner the child is introduced to the dentist, the easier it is to prevent dental problems and help your child maintain good dental health.
Dental consultation overview:
A dental checkup will include an extensive evaluation of your dental health. During this time, Dr. Smith will identify any dental problems that exist and recommend an appropriate treatment plan. Aside from assessment and treatment, one of Dr. Smith’s greatest priorities is to promote health and wellness.
