Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

Daily oral hygiene is essential to keeping your mouth clean and healthy. But as important as brushing and flossing are, they aren’t enough on their own to protect your teeth and gums. General dentistry covers a wide range of treatments designed to help you prevent and detect dental problems, so you can keep your oral health on track.

Can I prevent cavities?

Your mouth naturally creates a film over your teeth that becomes plaque. Plaque can harden into tartar, and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once daily, you break the film before it can become tartar. When you visit us for regular teeth cleanings, we’ll remove tartar from any spots you missed. We can also coat your teeth with fluoride to toughen your enamel and fight tooth decay.

Should I get fluoride treatment?

Sugar and bacteria in your mouth form acids that eat into your tooth enamel, causing cavities. Fluoride and other minerals strengthen your enamel and help fortify it against these kinds of attacks. If you are prone to cavities, fluoride treatments can help you avoid them. Of course, it’s also important to brush and floss every day and to cut down on sugary foods and drinks.
