What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is the services provided by your local dentist to help maintain the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Our general dentists focus on preventative techniques that help to identify and treat dental problems before they turn into costly, and potentially painful future fixes.

Our general dentists are also commonly referred to as family dentists, since we can provide our dental services to families and patients of all ages.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Almost everyone in the world has wisdom teeth but not everyone has the spacing to let them grow in! Wisdom teeth removal is a routine treatment that can help you avoid future problems such as infection, crowding, root damage, and more.

Root Canals

Is the inside of your tooth infected? Avoid future infections with a root canal. We’ll remove the infection to help maintain the health of your tooth and mouth.

Dental Fillings

Do you have a cavity? Broken or chipped tooth? When a tooth is damaged or decayed, a portion of your tooth has to be removed to avoid infection. Fillings are used to replace the missing part of the tooth to help strengthen and improve the appearance of your tooth.

Custom Sports Mouth Guards

Do you need a sports mouth guard? A minor tumble, whack, or skid could turn serious for your smile without the proper protection. Save your mouth from serious injuries with a custom sports mouth guard.

FAQs

All dentists and dental specialists first start out as “general” dentists — a comprehensive oral health provider who provides a wide range of dental care to patients of all ages. General dentists have a four-year degree in dentistry. If they choose to specialize in a specific type of service, they can return to school for another 2-3 years to become an expert in a key dental service, such as orthodontics.

General dentists are often referred to as family dentists or cosmetic dentists, because of the wide range of services they offer under one roof. General dentists often continue taking professional development courses to become better skilled in various services, such as dental implantsdental veneers, or sedation. In fact, they’re legally required to meet a minimum number of training hours per year! But some love learning so much, that they take more courses than are required. Every general dentist passes special board exams and must maintain active licensure in their region in order to practice.

Dentists routinely perform procedures related to tooth decay, gum disease, and dental emergencies. They can also replace missing teeth, restore damaged ones, and screen for conditions related to underlying health problems. Additionally, dentists evaluate people for oral cancer, perform tooth extractions and oral surgery, complete wisdom tooth removal, and offer preventative services that lower a person’s risk of oral health problems in the future.

Yes, at Southcentre Dental we use modern equipment such as 3D x-rays, and a high standard of care to assess and treatment plan for these types of procedures. However, if your dental needs are very complex, we may refer you to one of our trusted oral surgeons or endodontists.
