Like good oral hygiene, professional dental care is essential for maintaining a brilliant, healthy smile that’s fully functional and free from decay. Your general or family dentist plays a key role in your dental health by keeping your teeth and gums healthy throughout your life.
The Crucial Role of Your General Dentist
Your general dentist is a primary care provider who manages long-term dental health for both individual patients and families. General dentists don’t specialize in one particular area of dentistry, rather they diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions that affect the teeth and gums. They can easily treat almost any dental symptom or condition that develops over time.
How a General Dentist Protects Your Smile
In general family dentistry, the focus is on long-term maintenance of dental health. To keep your teeth and gums in the best shape possible, your dentist will perform regular dental exams, clean your teeth, fill cavities, repair chips, treat injuries and infections, perform complex dental procedures, manage emergency situations, and help you optimize your home care routine.

What Happens to People Who Avoid Seeing Their Dentist?
Without routine dental exams, you won’t know when tooth decay and gum disease start to develop. When detected at an early stage, most dental problems are easier and less expensive to treat. If you wait until you experience pain, swelling or other symptoms, treatment is more complex and costly, and in some cases, you may lose the affected teeth. To avoid paying for expensive restorations and adversely affecting your general health and self-confidence, see your dentist regularly. Call us to schedule your appointment today, and let our skilled dental professionals keep your smile healthy and pain-free.
