General dentistry is essential for ensuring your oral health. You need to see a general dentist regularly to maintain your teeth and to treat your dental problems when something goes wrong. Among the general dentistry services available are preventive services like routine exams and restorative services such as fillings.

Look for a dentist with extensive experience in your community. Also, look for a dentist office that is conveniently located to you. You might also want to look into the range of services provided and make sure that the dentist you choose will be able to handle all of your dental health needs.

Root Canals

A root canal is a dental procedure where the dentist repairs a tooth that has become severely decayed. When this procedure is performed, the dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth and dental pulp. Then, the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and sealed up.

Root canals are essential for patients with tooth decay that has spread into the dental pulp itself. Patients who wait to have root canals performed when necessary will likely experience increased problems with tooth decay. Eventually, they might completely lose all functionality of the affected tooth.

Cleanings and Exams

The number one dental service patients need for preventive dental care is routine cleanings. While you can brush and floss on your own, your own self-care can’t quite reach the level of thorough cleaning that a professional dental cleaning provides. 

Routine appointments at the dentist don’t just involve cleanings. They also include exams. Dentists visually inspect the teeth and also x-ray the mouth to check for problems in the teeth like tooth decay. Dentists can then recommend appropriate treatments. This ensures that treatments are performed promptly when necessary. During routine exams, general dentists can also provide valuable advice to patients regarding oral hygiene.

Dentists sometimes need to remove problem teeth to maintain a patient’s dental health. Tooth extractions could be necessary for a variety of reasons. They could be necessary due to tooth decay. They could also be necessary due to the growth of wisdom teeth or due to an injury that has caused a tooth to become severely cracked or damaged. Another scenario where a tooth extraction may be necessary is when a young patient’s baby teeth are still in place when permanent teeth start to grow in.

Seeing a dentist right away when you need to have a tooth extracted is important. Waiting to extract a problem tooth could lead to dental health issues that become increasingly more severe over time.
