A lifetime of healthy smiles requires two important things: a commitment to good oral hygiene, and regular professional care from a great dentist. Your general or family dentist plays a key role in keeping your smile and your family’s smiles looking and feeling fantastic.
Why Does Everyone Need a General Dentist?
General family dentistry focuses on the overall health of teeth and gums throughout a patient’s life. A general dentist often treats not only individual patients, but also their entire families. The role of this primary care provider is to keep your mouth healthy by detecting, treating, monitoring and preventing diseases that affect your teeth and gums.
How Does My General Dentist Protect My Dental Health?
At each appointment, your dentist will perform a careful exam of your teeth. You may also get a professional teeth-cleaning, x-rays and other procedures if needed. If you have pain or other symptoms, your dentist will determine the root cause and treat it so that it won’t pose a threat to your future dental health. General dentists can place fillings and crowns, perform root canal treatments, repair enamel and even replace knocked-out teeth when required. They also offer advice and guidance to help patients make the most of their home hygiene practices.

What Can Happen When You Avoid Your Routine Dental Exams?
Without regular exams, you may not know when gum disease or tooth decay begins. These conditions often produce no symptoms until they have become advanced, at which stage they become more expensive to treat and more difficult to resolve. In severe cases, you might even lose your natural teeth. To avoid costly restorations and painful symptoms, see your dentist regularly.
