We often underestimate the importance of our teeth until something happens and we stop smiling, or we are in considerable pains or discomfort. General Dentistry involved the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide array of conditions and diseased affecting the teeth, gums, and maxillofacial aspects of your oral health.
Regular checkups and oral health maintenance, such as hygiene appointments, prevents the development of serious dental problems that can require costly treatment.
During your appointment, we will work with you to develop a customised dental plan that incorporates a dental examination, hygiene, scaling, and x-rays. This is with the aim of preventing decay or disease of the teeth, mouth, gums, and tongue.
Although general dentists provide a wide array of services that are vital to your continued health, including:
- preventive services that help you maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in your mouth;
- restorative services, which deals with aspects, such as tooth decay, dental trauma (i.e. A broken, loosened, or knocked-out tooth), periodontal disease, etc); and
- cosmetic procedures, which are treatments that are carried out by dentists to help you get the sparkling smile you have always wanted.
your dentist can also offer help with overall health respects. In may respects, your oral health can be seen as a mirror of your general health, as some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of your body, and vice versa. General dentists are trained to identify issues and correlations, such as untreated oral infections and poorer control of diabetes, or an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, or complications during pregnancy. Once these problems has been identified, we can offer appropriate treatment or referral when needed. Our general dentists can also offer nutritional counselling, advice on tobacco cessation, ew and general health and wellness information.
