What is general dentistry?

General dentistry covers the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of conditions that affect your gums, teeth, and mouth. As a family dental practice, the team at Prestige Dental Centers provides comprehensive dental exams and cleanings for all ages. 

During a dental exam, your provider can diagnose any problems, take X-rays for a better look at your teeth and gums, and recommend a treatment plan to correct any issues. 

With regular cleanings and guidance for at-home care, they also can help ensure that you don’t develop problems in the first place. 

What are the benefits of general dentistry?

Because general dentistry covers the basics of oral hygiene, it’s important to recognize the benefits of regularly visiting the dentist. These benefits include: 

Preventing infection and other oral complications

When you schedule regular dental exams at Prestige Dental Centers, the team performs thorough dental cleanings to help you establish an effective dental hygiene routine and avoid issues involving oral infection and tooth decay.

Detecting cavities and gum disease early

If you show early signs of gum disease, cavities, sensitive teeth, or oral cancer, your provider can diagnose the issue and arrange treatment before it progresses.

Restoring already infected teeth and gums 

If your Prestige Dental Centers provider determines the presence of infected teeth or gums, they can discuss your treatment options to repair the existing issue. 

General dentistry plays a crucial role in maintaining oral health. You increase your risk of dental and oral health complications if you don’t schedule regular dental exams. 

How often should I see my dentist?

Oral and dental problems often develop without symptoms, making it difficult to know if a cavity or other dental issue is developing. For that reason, you typically should visit Prestige Dental Centers every six months for a cleaning and checkup.

Your dentist might suggest more frequent visits if you have a family history of dental complications or are susceptible to cavities and infection.
