What Is General Dentistry?
General dentistry offers the foundation of your oral healthcare. From comprehensive oral exams and routine dental cleanings to an array of general dental procedures, Dr. Lane is able to diagnose, treat, and handle all your dental needs. Complex dental procedures can be discovered with general dentistry and treated accordingly.
Benefits of General Dentistry
General dentistry helps to maintain oral health. And sometimes that involves patient education. By taking the time to discuss proper methods of caring for teeth with patients, we are able to help prevent major dental issues and keep teeth and gums healthy for years to come.
A few other benefits of general dentistry include:
- Examine all areas of your mouth to look for signs of bacteria. Areas of concern can be addressed before they have a chance to get worse.
- Routine cleanings reduce staining and chance of infections.
- Monitor for cavities, signs of gingivitis and even signs of cancer.
- Restore teeth that have cavities, have been broken or cracked, and those that have been worn down due to grinding.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of general dentistry is being healthy. Regular visits to your dentist can reduce your chance of things like stroke and heart disease. After all, good oral health means good overall health.
