Man in dental chair atEverglades Family Dental in Pembroke Pines, FLBy the time a child gets their first milk teeth, they usually know a thing or two about proper oral health. That routine almost always involves brushing and flossing. Unfortunately, this routine is not enough to guarantee perfectly healthy teeth. Once in a while, you need the services of a dentist who provides general dental services.

Who Is a General Dentist?

A general dentist is a professional who performs routine checkups and regular cleaning of your teeth. You cannot get specialized dental services from a general dentist, but they evaluate, diagnose, and treat issues you might have in your oral cavity.

What Does General Dental Services Encompass?

There are four primary services under the category of general dental services. Often, general dentists go by these distinct titles depending on the set of services they choose to focus on.

Preventative Services

The primary role of any general dentist is to offer preventative services, which aim to reduce the risk of getting oral health problems. Often, the dentist performs fluoride treatment, dental cleanings and sealants, and informational services.

Diagnostic Services

A general dentist offers diagnostic services when they are checking out your oral health concerns. These include oral exams and dental X-rays. If necessary, they perform periodontal checkups or cancer screenings as part of diagnostic services.

Restorative Services

A dental diagnosis determines if you have any dental problems, after which your dentist suggests the required restorative service. Restorative dentistry restores the health of your teeth, either by filling cavities or treating dental trauma and gum disease, among several other services.

Cosmetic Services

General dental services include cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening, dental bonding, and dental veneers. These tooth replacements help patients fill in gaps left by missing teeth.
