What is general dentistry?

General dentistry encompasses many preventive and restorative treatments. The first goal for our patients is to enjoy a smile free from periodontal disease and cavities. When patients visit their dentist at least twice a year, they can enjoy cleanings and examinations that can detect problems early enough for effective intervention. Additionally, patients can visit their dentist when issues arise.

Common general dentistry procedures

There are many procedures that are common to the field of general dentistry. These include:
  • Cleanings – at every recall appointment, patients have a thorough cleaning. Even with regular brushing and flossing, the teeth may still accumulate plaque and tartar in the hard to reach areas. Our team can effectively clean all areas of the smile.
  • X-rays – X-rays are used to detect problems that may be undetectable with the unassisted eye. X-rays may show cavities within a tooth or problems with the bone of the jaw or the tooth root.
  • Examinations – a physical examination is one way for our team to check for cavities, disease, and even oral cancer. This is done quickly and easily right in our office.
  • Fillings – when cavities do develop, fillings will be required. Fillings repair the area and seal the tooth to prevent further damage.

Every procedure I've had by these wonderful dentists has been superb! From cleanings, crowns, removal of amalgam fillings, I have no worries or feelings of anxiety, as I know my confidence high as a patient. I have been a patient for 9 years. The most professional and friendly staff in the world! No service improvements needed! I know that many people "fear" going to a dentist. Dr. Medlock, Dr. Keith, and staff make EVERY PATIENT feel comfortable and at ease, as they explain procedures well and are the most gentle and professional dentists in the world! A very clean office with friendly warm "welcome" smiles is an extra bonus! I would highly recommend everyone to this office of Dental Professionals!
