Preventative and restorative treatments to safeguard your oral health
General dentistry includes a wide range of preventive and restorative dental treatments to help patients maintain their oral health. This branch of dentistry focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the teeth, gums, and other structures in the mouth. Preventative treatments help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, while restorative treatments will help to restore teeth after injury, damage or decay.
What does general dentistry include?
At Devonshire Dental Care, we offer a wide range of treatments to help you to care for your oral health. This includes routine checkups, dental hygienist cleanings and fillings to help protect your teeth against decay. If you have missing or damaged teeth, we can also create bridges, crowns and veneers to help restore your smile.
Maintaining good oral health is important for your overall health and well-being. Poor oral health has been linked with a number of serious health conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and respiratory problems. By visiting the dentist regularly, you can help to keep your mouth healthy and avoid these potentially serious complications.
What is included in a check-up?
A routine dental check-up will usually include a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth and gums. We will also take X-rays to check for any problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. If we identify any areas of concern, we will discuss these with you and develop a treatment plan to address the issue.
If required, we may also recommend a visit to the dental hygienist to help control plaque and tartar build-up. This is also an ideal opportunity to ask questions about your oral health and learn about treatments available with Devonshire Dental Care.
How often should I visit the dentist?
We recommend a check-up every 6-12 months to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. However, if you have any concerns about your oral health, please do not hesitate to contact us for advice. By combining regular dental check-ups with regular dental hygienist cleanings, you’ll have an even better chance of protecting your teeth from damage or decay.
As a family dentist, we also help children and teens to care for their oral health. Encouraging young people to take an interest in their oral health from a young age is one of the best ways to protect their oral health in the long term.
