General Dentistry

General dentistry is the area of dentistry that focuses on preventative dental care. It includes services such as teeth cleanings, dental exams, fluoride treatments, and sealants. General dentistry can mean different things depending on the dentist and their equipment and expertise. Generally, however, it refers to dental care that patients of all ages can enjoy, including routine cleanings and checkups. The primary focus is prevention.

At Bencaz Family Dentistry, we provide comprehensive general dentistry services for all ages. We want to help our patients prevent common dental problems whenever possible so they can maintain beautiful, healthy smiles for a lifetime.

What Does General Dentistry Entail?

At our dental office, we not only provide regular preventive care like teeth cleanings and exams, but we also offer many advanced treatments such as crowns and dental implant restorations. We also offer custom nightguards to protect your teeth from grinding and clenching during sleep. 

Our dentists are highly trained in general dentistry as well as restorative care, and they can treat most oral health issues right here in our office. However, if a patient needs more complex treatment or oral surgery, we can refer them to the appropriate specialist.

Our goal is to always treat your dental problems in the most conservative way possible for effective, long-term results and the highest level of patient satisfaction. By providing complete dental services under one roof, we hope to make visiting the dentist a simple and convenient experience for you!

General Dentistry Treatments

General dental services include preventive cleanings and exams, oral cancer screenings, and fluoride treatments. Many general dentists provide restorative care, including tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, and root canals. Routine dental treatments are important to keep teeth healthy and prevent tooth loss.

In addition to preventative dental care, patients may visit a general dentist to treat emergency issues with symptoms like pain or swelling. Most dental practices provide emergency care during regular business hours. Patients can schedule appointments for general dental procedures such as dental exams and cleanings at their local practice as needed.

When Should I See a General Dentist?

Any time you need treatment for your teeth, you should visit our general dentist for a comprehensive examination and consultation. We can identify any areas of concern and recommend a treatment plan to help you achieve optimal oral health. Every patient has a different set of needs, so our dentist will develop a personalized treatment plan to address your unique concerns.

If you are in need of a restorative dental treatment such as a filling or crown, dental implants, or gum disease treatment, you should see our general dentist at the earliest. These types of treatments can have a major impact on your health if performed incorrectly or without guidance from a dentist with specialized knowledge. A general dentistry practitioner can perform a thorough assessment of your oral health before suggesting the best treatment option to restore your smile.
