All general dentists have one important goal: To protect and help you preserve your dental health.
Dentistry is all about keeping your natural teeth healthy, keeping your jaw and oral tissue healthy, and ensuring that you don't have severe health complications from tooth decay or other oral problems.
Knowing what your dentist does is an important part of being comfortable visiting your dentist. Dental Care Antioch provides general dentistry in Overland Park, KS, and we think keeping our patients informed is an important part of the job.
There are many different procedures that can be considered part of general dentistry. Your dentist may also offer cosmetic services, and many of them are the same procedure. The difference is whether your dentist is performing the procedure for health reasons or cosmetic reasons.
What falls under general dentistry?
If we lived in an ideal world, general dentistry would be comfortable preventive care rather than more invasive treatments of existing problems. Unfortunately, many people don’t visit their dentist until there is a problem.
Both preventive care and direct treatments fall under general dentistry, but preventive care is usually cheaper.
It’s important to find a general dentistry provider near you. Convenience helps you make and keep appointments and makes it more likely you’ll receive the regular care that keeps your mouth healthier.
You should aim to visit your dentist every six months for cleanings and regular care. Your dentist may recommend additional visits and treatments as necessary. We also understand that sometimes, regular visits aren’t possible. Even when that’s the case, you should try to get to the dentist as soon as you suspect there might be something wrong.
Once your tooth is causing consistent pain, or there are other noticeable problems with your oral health, it will probably take a more significant intervention to help.
