When you think of a visit to the dentist, you usually think of checkups, cleaning, and fillings. But did you know that an array of services fall under the banner of general dentistry?
Your general dentist is your primary care dental provider and looks after your oral health. A visit to your dentist regularly can help you maintain adequate oral hygiene and identify and treat any issues that may arise. You may be wondering what exactly is included within general dentistry – we’ve put together a brief guide of services below to help you.
Starting your child’s oral health routine young puts them on the right path to healthy teeth and gums as they grow. At this age, children’s dentistry focuses on building positive habits, alleviating any hesitations about seeing a dentist and preventative care to ensure that permanent teeth are developing as they should.
Professional teeth cleaning should be part of your oral health routine. Dental experts recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year to remove excess plaque and identify potential problems. Your general dentist can provide a thorough cleaning and analysis of your teeth and recommend any follow-up treatments if required.
Tooth fillings are unpleasant but are a necessary part of treating tooth decay. Your general dentist will use x-rays to determine the depth of the decay and advise the level of treatment required. Your general dentist can place a filling for small holes to minimise the risk of further decay, infections, and bacteria build-up.
Gum disease can be caused by various issues, and the symptoms are not always immediately evident. Also known as gingivitis, gum disease can be treated by removing the buildup of tartar and with a thorough oral clean. Your general dentist may recommend more frequent cleaning to prevent gingivitis from recurring.
A visit to the dentist is a cause for anxiety for many – but it doesn’t have to be. General dentistry encompasses sedation dentistry, allowing you to undergo treatment under the influence of medication. Sedation dentistry allows more patients to access dental procedures, ensuring their oral health is maintained.
TMD Joint Dysfunction
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, or TMD, is a painful condition where the joint between your jaw and your skull does not function properly. This can cause pain in your ears, sinus and teeth, and cause difficulty in chewing, yawning and speaking. General dentistry covers TMD therapy, whereby your experienced dentist will consult with other professionals to create a comprehensive treatment plan specific to your diagnosis.
