Why Do You Need A General Dentist?

Many people don’t realize that dentistry is a field that encompasses many different specialties. It’s not uncommon for patients to go in for a visit only to find out that they need to be referred elsewhere for their particular problem. The benefit of having a general dentist is knowing that all your dental health treatments can be completed in one convenient location.

How Often Should You Visit Your Dentist?

Maintaining optimal oral health requires being vigilant and visiting the dentist regularly. If you want to keep up with a regular professional cleaning schedule and be proactive about potential oral health issues, it’s recommended that you visit the dentist at least twice a year (or every 6 months). Having regular dental exams will make it easier to identify any problems before they worsen.

What Happens During a Dental Exam?

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will include the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic X-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
