General dentists are the first specialists you see when you have a dental related problem. Some general dentists are specialized enough to offer comprehensive cosmetic and preventative services, but usually, they would check and recommend you to a specialized surgeon or specialist. At the ConfiDent dental clinic, we have an exponentially trained medical staff that relies on continuous learning in order to offer a reliable service.
What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry looks into overall health concerns and helps general dentists guide patients regarding preventive maintenance, cosmetic procedures, and restorative services. The purpose of general dentistry is to make sure that everything is how it is supposed to be.
When should you see a General Dentist?
Generally, you should see a general dentist at least twice a year for preventative oral care. This could include oral cleaning (scaling and polishing) and general examination. Aside from that, you can see your specialist if you have an existing oral problem that doesn’t go away on its own. This could include a persistent toothache, jaw and neck pain and gum issues.
What to Expect from a General Dentist?
A general dentist is responsible for examining your overall oral wellbeing and make necessary suggestions to improve your oral condition. If you have any questions about general oral wellbeing, your general dentist would be able to help you with that. In complex situations, he may recommend you to a dental specialist for specialized treatment.
