General Dentistry


General dentistry refers to the practice of diagnosing, preventing, and treating conditions involving the teeth, gums, and jaw. Ideally, general dentistry is a preventive medicine, stopping conditions like tooth decay and periodontal disease before they start. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that patients visit a dentist twice a year in order to maintain optimal oral hygiene and keep serious dental problems at bay.

During a routine office visit, patients can expect to receive a dental exam, teeth cleaning, and set of x-rays. During your cleaning, a dental hygienist will remove hardened plaque and calculus deposits from your teeth using an instrument known as a “periodontal scaler.” Your teeth will then be flossed, polished, and, if necessary, treated with fluoride. The dentist will then examine your teeth for cavities and other dental problems, and develop a dental care plan based on your individual needs.
