There are many reasons you would need to visit a dentist. There is certainly a time you can think of when your oral health issue required seeing a specialist who focused on the particular issue you were experiencing. A great example of this would be an office dedicated to oral surgery. However, in most cases, visiting a general dental office like Favero Family Dental will be your best bet.
General dentistry will typically include preventive, restorative, and cosmetic services. Some general dentists may even have oral surgeries like a root canal as part of their offered services.
General dentists are great because you don’t need to seek out specialists or get multiple treatments done in different locations. With a general dental office, you will typically be able to receive all the dental treatment you need under one roof by a team that is reliable and effective. Let’s look more into the different types of dental work you can expect from a general dentist.
Preventive dental services are developed to help in the prevention or occurrence of oral disease. Preventive dentistry allows a dental professional to detect developing oral health issues at the earliest stages, allowing for early treatment. Two of the most common preventive dental services offered are oral examinations and professional teeth cleaning services.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends scheduling a preventive dental appointment with your dentist twice a year. This will allow your teeth to remain clear of any developing plaque or tartar, which can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and more. Even if you are diligent with your at-home oral hygiene, these services are paramount to ensuring your mouth remains healthy. An oral cancer screening is also included as part of your examination.
Oral disease can still sneak in even when you do everything you are supposed to. While regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing will significantly reduce the chances of developing an oral health issue, there is no guarantee because factors out of your control can cause these problems.
When an oral health problem needs to be corrected, this will usually be done via restorative dentistry. Restorative dental treatment aims to correct any developing oral health problems so that your oral health can be restored to excellent health.
A general dental office will offer a comprehensive range of restorative dental services, including:
These treatments are typically elective and aim to enhance your smile’s appearance.
If you have any imperfections in your smile that you want to correct, your dental team will offer cosmetic treatments, which include:
