You usually get to know a general dentist when you discover you have developed a cavity. Cavities are the most common dental issue treated by dentists. They can be quickly identified through a routine checkup that takes place in a dental office.
What Does A General Dentist Do?
A general dentist is, in reality, your family dentist. He or she is there to provide you with all the support you require to keep your teeth looking their best. This covers the basics from regular annual or semi-annual checkups and any procedures that may result from those visits.
Cleanings can be conducted by either your dentist or a dental hygienist although the majority of attention you will receive will come directly from the dentist. X-rays, fillings, fluoride treatments are all to be expected during a regular checkup.
Your family dentist is also qualified to perform much more than general dentistry such as any other additional oral health procedures as required. This may include root canals, applying dental implants, tooth extraction and so on. If you require treatment of a more severe nature your dentist will refer you to a qualified specialist if it is something they do not normally provide in your local dental office.
