Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is an area of dental specialty focused on delivering the full scope of dental care. Dentists who practice general dentistry have advanced training in all types of dental health services. 

Preventive dentistry is an essential part of general dentistry. Comprehensive dental exams provide your dentist with an opportunity to check your teeth and gums for signs of decay or disease. Advanced imaging can also help detect signs of concern. Professional cleanings make your teeth look and feel great. 

If treatment is needed, your general dentist offers many different options. Restorative treatments include:

  • Fillings
  • Dental implants
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Root canal
  • Periodontal care

There is a solution to virtually every set of dental needs. You’ll work with your dentist to determine the right fit for you. 

Why see a dentist if I do not have a dental problem?

Waiting until you have a serious problem to see a dentist is not a wise approach. This tactic fails to take advantage of preventive dental care, which can detect signs of decay or disease in the earliest possible stages when treatment is often most effective. 

Routine dental care also allows time for you to build a trusting bond with your dentist. This can serve you well if and when an urgent dental need arises or when your little one needs emergency dental care. 

Preventive dental care takes very little time. These routine visits are also enjoyable and allow you to get guidance on any dental care issue you have questions about. 

What should I look for in a general dentist?

Finding the right general dentist isn’t always easy. It’s helpful to know what to look for when choosing a dentist. 

A comfortable office with friendly staff is a good place to begin. Dental treatments can be stressful, and spending time in a warm and welcoming environment can make it easier to relax and get the care you need. Ease of scheduling is also something to consider. Offices that have online booking allow you to schedule from home at a time that’s convenient for you. 

Communication is also a big factor in choosing a dentist. It helps to find a dentist who shares your communication style. You should never feel bad about asking questions or expressing concerns, and there should be an open and honest flow of communication between you and your practitioner.
