General Dentistry Q & A
What is general dentistry?
General dentistry places an emphasis on maintaining your oral health and preventing disease and other complications in the future. The general dentists at ViVE Dental specialize in caring for children, adults, and the elderly so you can bring your whole family to the same place for dental care.
With your regular visits, the team at ViVE Dental builds your trust and forms a long-term relationship. They understand your lifestyle as well as your oral health goals and history so they can better serve you.
When you need more than preventive care, the ViVE Dental team creates an easy-to-follow, individualized treatment plan. They also answer your questions regarding your health and available services.
Which services does general dentistry provide?
General dentistry includes many services and procedures that are standard in dentistry. It’s important that you get regular check-ups from your general dentist, just like you do from your primary care physician. These visits allow the team to track your oral health and address diseases and complications early on when they arise.
Services available at ViVE Dental include:
- Professional cleanings
- Oral X-rays
- Dental fillings
- Tooth extractions
- Root canal therapy
Some of these services treat oral health issues while others help prevent them in the future. The team explains the benefit of each service.
How often should I schedule my general dentistry visits?
In general, most dentists recommend coming in twice a year, or once every six months, for a professional cleaning and check-up appointment. During these appointments, the team examines your mouth for signs of oral health complications and can coach you about your habits for oral care at home.
Of course, you’ll need to come in for additional visits if your oral health requires more treatments or services for maintenance. If your oral health is lacking, you might need more frequent cleanings. However, with the ViVE Dental team’s help, you can get your oral health back on track by improving your home care routine.
If you have children, bring them in by their first birthday for their first dental visit. The team recommends preparing your kids for dental appointments by avoiding scary terms like “drill,” “hurt,” “needle,” and “pull.” The friendly team at ViVE Dental introduces themselves to your children and will happily answer their questions.
