General Dentistry Q & A

Which treatments do general dentists perform?

A general dentist is responsible for ensuring you achieve optimal oral health. That starts with providing routine exams and cleanings to prevent future decay or tissue infections.

But your general dentist can perform treatments and procedures above and beyond preventive care. Some of the most common services a general dentist offers include:

  • Fillings and root canal treatments
  • Dental crowns and bridges
  • Gum disease treatments
  • Orthodontic care
  • Cosmetic dentistry procedures

Building a relationship with a dedicated general dentist not only helps keep your teeth and gums healthy, but it also gives you someone to call in case you have a dental emergency.

What happens during a dental exam?

A dental exam involves a thorough check of your teeth, gums, throat, and jaw. Often, these are areas that are overlooked by your primary care physician, which is why it’s so important to visit your general dentist regularly. Your dental exam can include:

  • X-ray imaging
  • Removing plaque and tartar
  • Cancer screening
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Designing a treatment plan

Your doctor will spend time evaluating the back of your throat, the insides of your cheeks, and your lymph nodes, to check for early warning signs of oral cancer. Your hygienist will thoroughly explain how to brush and floss at home. They will also go over lifestyle changes you can make to help keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. We are here as your partners and are happy to answer any questions you may have about your treatment!

How often do I need a teeth cleaning appointment?

Because your teeth cleaning appointment involves a checkup of your overall oral health, it’s important to see your dentist regularly. Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah recommend scheduling routine visits twice per year. But you could need additional appointments if you have decay, periodontitis, or another chronic dental issue.

If you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, it’s never too late to get back on track. Because dental cleanings and exams revolve around preventive care, the sooner you schedule your visit, the better your chances of preserving your natural teeth and keeping your gums healthy.
