General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

Just as you have a primary care physician looking after your overall health and working to ensure you receive the care you need, it’s important to have a dental provider to look after your overall dental health. A general dentist works hard to properly diagnose and treat a wide range of dental conditions and help maintain your overall dental health. 

When choosing a general dentist for yourself and your family, it’s important to choose someone you can trust. Just For Your Smile has developed a well-earned reputation for providing patients with expert general dentistry care in a compassionate and comfortable setting.

What are common general dentistry procedures?

General dentistry covers a wide range of dental procedures and conditions, including:

Dental fillings

Your dentist uses dental fillings to address cavities. The process involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth and filling it with a replacement material. 

Sealants

Often used for children, dental sealants are a thin coating that protects the tooth from cavities. 

Teeth cleanings

Professional teeth cleaning helps protect your teeth from developing gingivitis and periodontal disease by removing bacteria-trapping plaque. 

Dental crowns and bridges

Dental crowns are tooth-like caps that are used to protect damaged or weak teeth, or to restore a dental implant. A dental bridge is a tooth-like device that attaches to nearby teeth, bridging the gap between them and serving to replace a missing tooth. 

Tooth extraction

There are many reasons for extracting a tooth. Overcrowded teeth, as is common with wisdom teeth, or teeth that are too damaged or diseased to be saved are often surgically removed. 

What should I expect at my general dentistry appointment?

Your experience depends on what type of procedure you have performed. Whether it’s just a regular dental checkup or a more in-depth procedure like a tooth extraction, your provider at Just For Your Smile works with you to create an individualized plan of care to ensure the best results.
