General dental care focuses on maintaining the health of your teeth and gums with a combination of routine dental check-ups, dental hygiene treatments and any restorative treatment needed to repair teeth, damaged by dental decay or excessive wear.
When it comes to your oral health, prevention is always better than cure, which is why we put a huge emphasis on our general dental treatments to keep your smile healthy.
The key to keeping your teeth and gums healthy is your routine cleaning regime. Most of the hard work takes place at home, with regular brushing and flossing. Even if you clean and floss twice a day, you still need to see the dentist regularly to make sure your teeth, gums and jaw are completely healthy. Many issues, such as gum disease, are hard to spot and only a dentist or hygienist can properly assess your oral health.
Seeing your dentist will also give you the chance to discuss any issues you’re experiencing. If you have tooth pain or have noticed extra sensitivity, it’s best to tell your dentist as there could be an underlying issue.
While we all do what we can to keep our natural smile healthy, teeth can become damaged whether through an accident, dental decay or excessive wear. General dentistry covers repairing and restoring teeth that are damaged. This includes white fillings, crowns, bridges and dentures. We can help you smile again.
