At your first visit with your dentist, the primary goal is to find out what, if anything, is causing your discomfort and get that taken care of as quickly as possible.

From there, they will talk to you to find out what you would like to improve about your smile, both aesthetically and functionally.

  • Are there broken, decayed, or missing teeth to be fixed?
  • Do you have some teeth that seem too short or too long?
  • Are there any other flaws that you feel should be corrected?

Once they understand what you hope to achieve, your dentist will conduct an examination of your mouth using an intraoral camera and digital X-rays. This will make it possible for them to find the underlying causes of pain, discomfort, or decay and recommend comprehensive treatment.

Once the diagnosis is complete, they will show you the areas that need to be treated and explain your options thoroughly. There is often more than one approach you can take, and they will explain which one they feel is best for you and why. You may also see before-and-after pictures of cases we have treated so you can get an idea of what can be accomplished for you. You can expect your entire new patient cleaning, exam, and consultation visit to take about two hours.

Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general practice dentistry?

General dentistry includes a broad range of treatments that aim to keep your smile in its best possible condition. Two of the most important general dental services are exams and cleanings. Cleanings eliminate all the plaque you may have missed when brushing and flossing at home. This helps prevent cavities and gum disease. Exams help us identify dental problems in their early stages to keep treatment minimal and costs low.

Can orthodontists practice general dentistry?

All dentists, including orthodontists and other dental specialists, begin their education with the same training. So an orthodontist has had the training needed to practice general dentistry. However, most specialists prefer to practice only in their chosen area of focus. In contrast, many general dentists offer services – like oral surgery – that are also performed by specialists.

What procedures can a general dentist do?

In addition to general dental care like exams and cleanings, many general dentists offer a variety of other services. For example, at our office you’ll find cosmetic services like veneers and restorative treatments like root canals and crowns. Our dentists also offer teeth removal and teeth replacement. We treat dental emergencies too.

Where can I purchase a mouthguard?

While so-called boil-and-bite mouthguards are available from big-box retailers and sporting goods stores, we recommend that you let our team have a professional mouthguard made for you. We’ll take impressions of your mouth, then our lab partner will custom-craft your mouthguard to these exact specifications. The result will be a better-fitting, better-performing mouthguard.

Can dry mouth cause bad breath?

Unfortunately, one of the side effects of a dry mouth is bad breath. To help avoid embarrassing and awkward social situations, you’ll want to take steps to fight your dry mouth condition. We encourage you to see your dentist soon so you can get the help you need to feel confident when interacting with others.
