What is a general dentist?
A general dentist is best described as a dentist who provides many routine procedures for patients. This may include:
- Dental evaluations – patients are urged to visit a dentist every six months for a “recall appointment.” These appointments allow the dental team to evaluate the patient’s smile while also providing a thorough cleaning and assessment. If there are any concerns within the smile, the dental hygienist may also take dental x-rays to examine the teeth and bone underneath the gums. Sometimes, problems can be spotted with x-rays that cannot be found with the naked eye during a physical evaluation.
- Diagnostics – our team ensures patients are aware of any problems that exist within their smiles. When patients get a proper diagnosis of their condition, they can then discuss possible treatment options. Our team can diagnose infections, cavities, impacted teeth, and other problems that may require additional care.
- Periodontal care – periodontal disease, or “gum disease,” is a condition that can have a dramatic, negative impact on the health and appearance of the smile. By getting an evaluation and proper diagnosis, patients can work with Dr. Leo Arellano to restore oral health and wellness. Periodontal care may involve a thorough cleaning or procedures such as scaling and root planing. Treatment of periodontal problems can avoid the loss of teeth, gum tissue, and bone.
- Dental restorations – when there is a problem with the smile, dental restorations may help. Weak or damaged teeth may benefit from the placement of a dental crown over the exposed area as an extra layer of protection. Dental fillings are often used when areas of decay are diagnosed within the smile. This stops the decay from progressing and becoming a more serious problem. Dental restorations may also include dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
