What is general dentistry?

General dentistry refers to all the professional care, cleaning, and maintenance you need for a healthy smile. At Image Dental, the team makes sure you stay up-to-date with all the procedures you need to prevent oral health issues and treat them when they come up. They also take steps to make sure dentistry is comfortable for you to get the care you need.

The team at Image Dental is known for their conservative approach to dentistry.

They aim to restore patients’ teeth to a natural-looking state, all while maintaining or improving oral health.

Image Dental provides treatments and evaluations using the latest technology in dentistry, including digital imaging and laser dentistry with Periolase®.  

Which treatments and services does general dentistry include?

General dentistry includes many services and treatments that you either regularly need to maintain your oral health or might need at some point. The team at Image Dental evaluates you regularly so they can catch potential oral health issues in early stages and treat them as they come up.  

At Image Dental, you can get:

  • Examinations
  • Professional cleanings
  • Scaling and root planing

  • Same-day crowns

The team at Image Dental also offers emergency dentistry services. They can see you quickly for immense tooth pain, abscesses, knocked-out teeth, and other complications that need care right away. 

When should I see my general dentist?

You should see your general dentist at Image Dental at least once every six months for an examination and cleaning. You can benefit from teeth cleaning regardless of whether you brush and floss your teeth every day, as a professional teeth cleaning removes hardened bacteria that a toothbrush cannot take off. 

Your dentist examines you for possible dental complications during these visits and can tell you if you require any treatments. You should also book an appointment for general dentistry at Image Dental if you have tooth pain, sensitivity, gum inflammation, or any other symptom or concern involving your teeth or gums.
