General dentistry involves a wide variety of dental practices which all aim to maintain your oral health. It involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of many conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and jaw.
There are two major branches of dentistry – preventative and reconstructive. Preventive dental care helps patients avoid the need for complex dental work later on. Through regular maintenance and early intervention, we aim to help our patients save on the cost of complex dental treatments in the future.
General dentistry provides the core of dental treatment including:
- dental examinations and professional cleaning visits
- root canals
- crowns, bridges and implants
- partial and complete dentures
- tooth whitening
- sedation dentistry
We welcome dental emergencies but are proactive in our care and therefore recommend regular visits for dental examination, X-rays and professional cleaning to help prevent and treat tooth, gum and jaw related diseases.
