Why Choose a General Dentist?
Each stage of life has different needs, so it makes sense for your family to see a dentist with extensive experience working with kids, adolescents, adults, and older adults. Your general dentist will treat your children from when they’re toddlers into adulthood, meaning they’ll form relationships and trust over the years. A bonus is that you won’t have to spend time driving from one dental practice to another, and your children will love going to the dentist with you!
How Often Should You Visit Your Dentist?
Everyone has different oral health needs that impact the frequency of dental visits. Most people require twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings because that’s the safest amount of time to ensure we identify oral health problems in their earliest stages when treatments are easier and more effective. If, however, you have gum disease and bone loss or are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay, you will likely require more frequent dental care.
What Should You Expect During a Routine Visit?
We’ll start by taking digital x-rays to uncover any problems, including tooth decay between your teeth, bone loss, or other potential concerns not visible during a physical exam. Next is evaluating the health of your gums, teeth, and dental work to check for problem areas or signs of disease or damage.
During your visit, we’ll conduct an oral cancer screening to rule out abnormalities. Identifying oral cancer in its earliest stages saves lives because early treatment offers the best chances for a positive outcome.
An essential component of every routine dental visit is a professional cleaning. Our dental hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar deposits from around your gum line and in between your teeth, then floss and polish those pearly whites, leaving them bright and sparkling. We also recommend a fluoride treatment, if needed, to strengthen your tooth enamel and help keep tooth decay at bay. Our team will discuss your oral hygiene practices and offer tips to ensure you maintain healthy habits for long-term healthy smiles.
What Happens Next?
Depending on your needs, we may recommend preventative dental procedures to lower your risk of dental problems or restorative procedures to repair any existing tooth damage. If you have signs of periodontal disease, you’ll need a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing to prevent the condition from progressing and posing a risk to your oral health. If you have stained, discolored, or not-so-perfect teeth, we may recommend one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures to enhance the appearance of your smile. We’ll work with you to create a fully personalized treatment plan to address your unique dental health needs.
