Why general dentistry is important
It’s important to come see your general dentists for a number of reasons. We’re typically the individual you see most often. If you go every six months, we’re checking your blood pressure, we’re looking at your overall health. A lot of overall health begins, as far as the evidence, is right in the mouth. We’ll see things that are beginning to be a problem that maybe you haven’t felt yet or that you don’t know about yet. And so we look into all those aspects, whether it be oral cancer screening, gum disease, other issues that can relate to any number of health issues. We’re looking at all of that as well as the basic general dental needs that all of us have and keeping up with that on a daily basis. And then the next step being once we found the issues of general dentistry that we need to address, then we do fillings and a number of crowns and things of that nature to help provide a good outcome.
