Your General Dentist: The Key to Optimal Dental Health
A general dentist doesn’t specialize in any one dental disease; he or she diagnoses, treats and prevents a wide range of diseases that affect the teeth and gums. Your dentist maintains your smile as a primary care provider who offers the technology, expertise and guidance to meet all of your dental needs, regardless of your age.
What to Expect from General Family Dentistry Providers
Your general dentist performs a number of tasks to keep your dental health in check; these may include dental exams, x-rays, filling cavities, cleaning and polishing your teeth, treating infections and injuries and providing advice about home dental care. When symptoms appear or accidents occur, your dentist is there to repair the damage and protect your future dental health.

What Happens When You Don’t See Your Dentist Regularly?
Tooth and gum disorders don’t always hurt, especially when they’re first starting to develop. Without regular checkups, tooth decay and gum disease can progress unchecked until they advance to a stage where treatment becomes more difficult and expensive. To avoid unnecessary pain, high dental bills and possible tooth loss, see your dentist at regular intervals. Call us today to schedule your exam.
