What is General Dentistry?

Developing a foundation for good oral health can benefit you now and in the future. It all starts with routine dental care, such as professional cleanings, dental examinations, x-rays, and polishing. Not only do you learn about good oral hygiene habits from a general dentist, but any areas of concern can be addressed early - including cavities, tooth decay, infection, cracked teeth, and so forth.

At Ricco Dental Group, we welcome patients of all ages so that we can take steps to help reduce the number of complex issues later on.

Benefits of General Dentistry

General dentistry is full of benefits. It involves everything you need to maintain oral health now and in the future. It also provides you with:

  • Encouragement to develop an oral hygiene routine.
  • The chance to see one dentist for all your dental needs.
  • All your dental records will be maintained by the practice.

General dentistry also allows you to see the same dental team whenever any dental concerns arise, regardless of how minor or complex. As you grow in your relationship with your dental team, you will feel more comfortable with every visit.

What are the most common general dentistry procedures?

General dentistry involves many different types of procedures meant to benefit oral health. But, fillings, crowns, and extractions are often the most common. Though if you ask what is our most common appointment for, it would be routine cleanings and examinations.

What do dentists look for during a dental examination?

Dental examinations allow the dentist to thoroughly look for signs of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, cracked or fractured teeth, abnormalities, and others.

How often should routine cleanings and dental exams be scheduled?

Ideally, you should invest in a professional cleaning every six (6) months.

Do general dentists do dental implants?

It depends. Although dental implants are more of a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure, they are becoming more popular in general dentistry offices. At The Ricco Dental Group, we do offer dental implants for our patients.
