General and Family Dentistry

General and family dentistry is a broad term that encompasses all dental care provided to patients. The major difference between a general dentist and a family dentist is that a family dentist offers services for patients of all ages, while a general dentist often focuses on teens, young adults, and adults. General and family dentists provide everything from preventive dental care to restorative procedures, such as fillings, crowns, and bridges. General and family dentists can also offer cosmetic procedures, such as whitening and veneers.

General and family dentists provide routine exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and x-rays, as well as diagnose oral health conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease to help patients achieve good oral health.

What Does General And Family Dentistry Encompass?

General and family dentistry services help patients maintain healthy teeth and gums for life. When patients visit a general dentist, they receive a comprehensive oral exam. This helps the dentist identify any issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.

General and family dentistry encompasses a wide range of services that maintain your dental health. These services may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cleanings
  • Fillings
  • X-rays
  • Sealants
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Dentures
  • Orthodontics
  • Tooth extractions

What Are The Benefits of General And Family Dentistry?

General and family dentistry encompasses a wide variety of preventive and restorative procedures. Regular checkups and cleanings help patients stay healthy while restoring smiles that are decayed, broken, or missing. Procedures such as fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, sealants, and fluoride treatments help patients maintain excellent oral health. Restorative dental procedures also help those with missing or damaged teeth restore their oral health and functionality and have optimal oral health. 

When Should I See A General Dentist?

The best way to keep teeth healthy is to visit a general dentist regularly for examinations and professional cleanings. As per the  American Dental Association, one should visit their dentist for checkups and teeth cleanings every six months. With regular dental care, oral health problems can be identified and treated early. This can help to prevent the need for more extensive dental work in the future, thus saving money and effort.
