General dentistry consists of preventive procedures that aim to stop the development of dental disease. A general dentist provides preventative dental care to patients of all ages. Children should visit the dentist for the first time by their first birthday, and patients of all ages should visit the dentist twice a year for routine cleanings and examinations.
During a regular dental exam, the dentist will inspect the patient’s teeth and gums to look for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other problems. If the dentist finds a problem, they will formulate a treatment plan that is best for the patient. The general dentistry services we offer at Dr. Namching J. Young, DDS also include restorative procedures that repair teeth damaged by dental disease.
What Does a General Dentist Do?
Our dentist may recommend scheduling an appointment every six months, even if you take excellent care of your teeth at home. These appointments are essential in that they allow us to detect cavities early and prevent them before they cause you any pain or discomfort. We may also recommend fluoride treatments or cleanings to keep your mouth free of bacteria and plaque buildup.
We also offer restorative dental care to restore your smile and improve oral health. Our dentist can repair decayed or missing teeth with dental crowns, bridges, and fillings and provide several endodontic services. These include root canal therapy to save teeth severely damaged by decay or trauma. We also perform extractions to remove problem teeth and place dental implants for a stable new tooth replacement option.
The Benefits of General Dentistry
Maintaining your smile’s overall health requires routine maintenance. Without general dentistry, your teeth may become more susceptible to decay, gum disease, and other complications. From regular cleanings and exams to X-rays and fillings, we are here to care for your dental needs in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Routine checkups every six months can help catch any problems before they become significant. Regular cleanings and examinations can help you maintain excellent oral health.
During routine cleanings, the hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. The hygienist will also polish your teeth, removing stains and brightening your smile. X-rays can also help us diagnose cavities and other oral health problems early on for more conservative treatment options.
