STARTING OFF WITH GOOD DENTAL CARE
New Jersey General Practice Dentistry
General practice dentistry is the very heart of what we do at True Dental Care. From regularly scheduled appointments to treatment for acute dental problems, we help our patients achieve and maintain their oral health. From our state-of-the-art facility to our expertly trained and personable dental professionals, we’re equipped to provide an incredible experience from start to finish.
What Is General Practice Dentistry?
General practice dentistry is a broad term that encompasses everything a dentist does. Much in the same way a primary care physician acts as an overall caregiver in general medicine, general practice dentists are the first stop for patients looking for routine examinations and diagnoses for acute issues.
Your Visit To True Dental Care
Depending on your reason for visiting our office, your dentist may do any or all of the following:
- Perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums
- Address specific concerns regarding issues you’ve been experiencing, including pain or functional problems
- Advise treatment options or recommend additional procedures
- Formulate a comprehensive care plan that includes preventive care
Issues General Dentists Treat
Most dental disorders fall under the umbrella of general dentistry. In addition to performing oral exams and cleanings, your dentist may provide, identify and offer treatment for all of the following:
- Gum disease
- Dental implants
- Cancer screenings
- Root canals
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Crowns and bridgework
- TMJ and bruxism
While many of us only visit the dentist when it’s absolutely necessary, preventive care is just as important as treatment. In fact, routine exams can help safeguard against common issues such as cavities and gum disease, and even when those issues do arise, catching them earlier makes treatment less complicated. The American Dental Association recommends a minimum of one annual visit for low-risk patients, while high-risk patients should see their dentist more frequently.
