What is General Dentistry?
General Dentistry is the branch of medicine involving the care and prevention of oral health conditions, diseases and disorders. The goal of general dentistry is to remove all disease from your mouth and repair broken down teeth, giving you the freedom to enjoy one of life’s favorite pleasures — eating your favorite foods! Although some disease may be painful, like a cavity in your tooth, “gum disease” is usually not painful and can lead to unexpected loss of your teeth. Through regular checkups, dental cleanings, removal of dental decay, and showing your proper home health care, we can eliminate disease from your mouth to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life.
A Dentist’s job is to use preventative care and patient education to preclude the need for treatments and instead promote a healthy smile for life. Dentists are also responsible for diagnosing conditions that affect the mouth, teeth, gums and jaws, as well as develop the most effective treatment plan with the patient’s best interests in mind.
Our Little Falls Dentist attended and completed dental school to achieve a Doctor of Dental Surgery or a Doctor of Dental Medicine. At that time, Dentists may take national and state certification exams, which prove a dentist’s proficiency to practice. Upon passing the exams, state licensing is awarded on an individual basis.
Dentist typically do not focus on any particular specialty, instead opting to provide generalized dental care to patients. In some cases, general dentists may refer a patient to a specialty provider for care or treatment that is beyond the scope of General Dentistry. However, most General Dentists are capable of providing complete examinations, cleanings, root canals, restorations, extractions and tooth prosthetics.
General Dentistry is best when patients use it for preventive care, rather than for corrective treatment. By visiting a Dentist twice annually for cleanings and examinations, patients can avoid decay and identify potential oral health conditions, such as periodontal disease, in their earliest stages.
