What is a General Dentist?
A general dentist is an accredited medical professional who provides primary dental care for patients of all ages. Although he or she does not specialize in one type of dentistry, a general dentist undergoes rigorous training and licensing to provide many services that treat and prevent tooth and gum diseases, ensuring dental health.
What Does a General Dentist Do?
A general dentist, which is also called a family dentist, focuses on lifelong dental health. That means performing regular checkups, cleaning and polishing your teeth, advising you on the best oral hygiene (such as the best ways to brush, floss and use dental products), filling cavities, creating crowns, bridges, and dentures, and performing other procedures that strengthen, repair, or replace diseased teeth.
Our general dentist at Advanced Dental Care of Florida also provides emergency dentistry procedures such as toothache relief, and cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening and veneers. So whether you have tooth pain, crack or chip a tooth, or find that your smile looks dingy, your dentist can diagnose the condition, treat the underlying cause and help prevent the problem from reoccurring.
