What is general dentistry?

To understand general dentistry, it’s a good idea to learn more about preventive dentistry and how they differ. Your general dentist in Temecula, CA promotes preventive dentistry, which often means you’ll need fewer general dentistry services.

Let us explain…

Preventive dentistry lowers your risks for preventable conditions like cavities, gum disease, tooth loss, and oral infections. It includes twice-yearly exams and teeth cleaning, along with oral cancer screenings. Preventive dentistry is about saving you time and money on future dentistry.

We turn to general dentistry when something goes wrong, like tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, or an oral infection. General dentistry is about maintenance and restoration.

General dentistry services include:

  • Tooth-colored-fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Root canal treatments
  • Extractions
  • Tooth replacement
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Emergency dentistry

Ideally, you should need fewer general dentistry services if you have an excellent preventive dentistry schedule and a great oral care routine at home.
