General Dentistry Overview
General Dentistry: An Overview
It is unfortunate that general dentistry is described using that word, “general.” After all, it is some of the most important dentistry available. That is why Dr. Norkiewicz and Dr. Deckard of Rockville Dental Arts in Rockville, MD offer patients a full array of general dentistry and preventative dentistry treatments.
Essentially, general dentistry is the work you will have done during your annual or twice annual visits to our office. Cleanings, checkups and follow up care are the best keys to long-term oral health. With our general dentistry, as an example, you may find that you have early signs of decay, and that a filling is needed before the issue worsens. You might discover that you have gingivitis or the beginnings of gum disease, and it is general dentistry and preventative dentistry that can nip it in the bud.
After all, if you ignore your need for general dentistry, you may find that the little discomfort or the bleeding gums evolve into much more serious and costly issues. Because there are now proven co-relations between general health and wellbeing and good oral health, it is also imperative that you get yourself, and your family, the regular general dentistry so essential to good health.
During your general dentistry visits, we will have one of our skilled hygienists clean your teeth and then one of our doctors will perform the full check up, including reviewing the x-rays we suggest at least once per year.
In addition to this care, we also make an array of preventative dentistry measures available. This includes the use of composite or “tooth colored” fillings, root canals, and more. Each of these treatments provides our patients – of all ages – with the care they need to address some of the most problematic issues, such as cavities, and prevent them from damaging a tooth any further.
Whether you have been on top of oral hygiene for your entire life, or you let things slip a bit in the past, we have the general dentistry treatments and technology to help. Our preventative dentistry equipment is truly state of the art, enabling us to identify problems long before you even know you have them!
