Frequently Asked Questions

What is General Dentistry?
A: General Dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on maintaining oral health and preventing various dental problems. It involves regular checkups, cleanings, and diagnostic procedures to ensure that the teeth, gums, and mouth are in good condition.

What types of procedures are performed in General Dentistry?

General Dentistry includes a wide range of procedures, including routine checkups and cleanings, filling cavities, extractions, root canal therapy, dental implants, orthodontic treatment, and more.

How often should I visit the dentist for a checkup?

It is recommended to visit the dentist at least twice a year for a routine checkup and cleaning. This frequency can vary depending on individual needs and the recommendation of your dentist.

What can I expect during a routine dental checkup?

During a routine dental checkup, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, looking for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other dental problems. They will also clean your teeth and discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health.

What is the difference between a filling and a crown?

Fillings are used to repair small to moderate-sized cavities, while crowns are used to restore a damaged or decayed tooth to its original shape and function. Crowns are typically recommended for larger cavities or when a tooth has been damaged by trauma.

Is root canal therapy painful?

No, root canal therapy is not painful. It is a procedure that is performed under local anesthesia to relieve the pain and save a damaged or infected tooth. In many cases, patients experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure.

How can I maintain good oral health between dental visits?

Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash, can help maintain good oral health between dental visits. A balanced diet low in sugar and regular dental checkups are also important for maintaining good oral health.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

If you have a dental emergency, such as a broken tooth, a painful toothache, or swelling in the mouth, it is important to contact your dentist immediately. They will advise you on the best course of action and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
