General dentists perform a variety of procedures all focused on promoting overall oral hygiene and health. They care for your teeth, gums, and mouth. There are a few types of general dentistry services with several different procedures within each category.
Types of General Dentistry Services
Preventative services are the services that you think of when you think of general dentistry. You should see your dentist every six months for a routine exam. This visit will include a teeth cleaning and x-rays.
Restorative procedures are any that return your teeth to their natural state after any type of damage. Any number of things can cause damage to teeth and the level of damage will determine what procedure will be used to restore them. General dental practitioners will use restorative procedures that include fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants.
Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that improve the look of the teeth and or gums including bite. It is focused on improving the aesthetic appearance of the smile not necessarily the functionality. Learn more about our cosmetic dentistry treatment options in Arlington VA.
