General dentists rank among the most common dental care professionals, and for good reason. They are the first line of defense in dental care and preventative measures, helping to diagnose, treat and manage the overall oral health of patients.
What do General Dentists Do?
General dentists focus on preventative care and maintenance as the first line of defense against oral and dental issues. Their guidance and services help to prevent disease and decay associated with the mouth, gums, tongue and teeth.
When preventative measures don’t get the job done, or when patients come in with existing issues, general dentists utilize a number of diagnostic tools in combination with thorough examinations in order to prescribe appropriate treatment options.
