What Is a General Dentist?
A general dentist is a dental professional who can perform most dental procedures rather than specializing in one specific area. They are concerned with the health of your teeth, gums and mouth.
What Does a General Dentist Do to Keep Teeth Clean?
General family dentistry has good oral hygiene at its core. Your dentist performs regular exams to look for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that can be hard to reach at home. If your teeth hurt or you have other issues, your dentist can assess your condition and treat the cause of your dental pain.

How Often Should You Go to the Dentist?
Most people should see a dentist every six months to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. However, that schedule can vary based on any health or dental conditions you may have. If you are a smoker or a diabetic, you may need to see the dentist more often.

What Happens If You Don’t Go to the Dentist?
Brushing and flossing at home only go so far when it comes to preserving and protecting your teeth for life. At regular dental checkups, your teeth will be professionally cleaned, and any plaque buildup will be removed. If you don’t go for cleanings, plaque will flourish and attack your gums and teeth. The decay that results may require extensive treatments, like root canals or crowns. You can avoid that, and many other risks to your dental health, by visiting a dentist on a regular basis. Please call us to schedule an appointment today. You deserve a healthy, pain-free smile for life.
