General Dentistry

What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry includes all those services which are encompassed by primary dental care. This takes in diagnostics, treatments, and management of overall oral healthcare, which at any time might call for gum care, fillings, root canals, bridges, crowns, veneers, and a host of other services. It also generally includes preventive education which is imparted to the patient, so they can manage their own health care at home in between dental appointments. Practicing general dentists will all have earned either a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), or a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Both of these degrees require the same body of knowledge to be studied, and the difference is primarily in the preference of an individual University. In order to become a general dentist, it will be necessary to undergo at least three years of undergraduate education, in addition to another four years of dental school. To achieve some type of specialty within the field of dentistry, additional postgraduate training would be required.

General Dentistry Services We Offer

  • Dental Emergencies - despite your best efforts, sometimes dental emergencies do arise. If you're not sure what constitutes a dental emergency, it usually includes a tooth which has become knocked out or loosened, or a situation in which you're experiencing a significant amount of pain or bleeding.
  • New Patients - we welcome new patients at our clinic, and you can start the whole family with receiving expert dental care from our well-qualified dental professionals. We can provide any of the dental procedures you might need, from simple cleaning sessions all the way up to All-on-4 dental implants, which can replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth.
  • Root Canal - a root canal is the best way to preserve a tooth which may have become infected, and it's a good alternative to having the tooth extracted. These days, there is no pain associated with the procedure, as there might have been in the past.
  • Sedation Dentistry - some people develop fears about undergoing dental procedures, and for these individuals, we can provide either nitrous oxide, oral sedation or IV sedation, to make the process much more relaxing and tolerable.
  • Tooth Extraction - this is always an alternative to having a root canal performed, and when a tooth has become badly decayed or infected, it is sometimes the best option to pursue. When a tooth can't be saved, tooth extraction is the best way to go, and then there will be some options available for replacing the tooth.
  • Deep Cleaning - deep teeth cleaning is a process where tartar and plaque can be removed from below the gum line, so that tooth decay doesn't have a chance to begin attacking your teeth and gums. During this process, periodontal scaling and root planing might be used to eliminate the harmful buildup of plaque and tartar.
