What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry (particularly general family dentistry) is a broad-sweeping category of dental practice.
Your family dentist is one of your first lines of defence against more serious dental maladies.
One of the primary responsibilities of a family dentist is to perform routine dental cleanings and dental health exams. In doing so, the dentists at Dentist on Kingsway are able to monitor developments in your dental health from visit to visit.
They will be the first to know if more complicated dental procedures such as a root canal, filling, crown, or veneer may be appropriate for you. They will regularly take x-rays of your teeth and jaws to document long-term changes and developments.
Your family dentist will likely ask you questions about you and your lifestyle to get a more accurate assessment if your dental health risks.
Dietary choices such as the consumption of dyed sodas, red wine, coffee, or tea may lead to the staining or discoloration of your teeth as well as causing accelerated wear and tear to your tooth enamel.
Your family dentist may also ask you (in confidence, of course) about more sensitive lifestyle choices such as whether or not you smoke or use harder drugs which may cause accelerated damage or staining to your teeth.
Not all of the questions your family dentist may ask will be quite so serious. Even knowing about your hobbies and interests may prove to be useful in assessing potential risks and hazards to your dental health.
For example, if you are about to take up hockey as a sport, the dentists at Dentist on Kingsway will want to know so that you can be fitted for a mouth guard.
Your family dentist should be kept in the loop on all developments to your daily life and lifestyle choices in order to ensure that your dental health regimen is equipped to accommodate these developments.
If you feel self-conscious of your smile or believe that you may be a candidate for procedures such as laser teeth whitening, porcelain dental veneers, or realignment procedures such as braces or Invisalign aligners, your family dentist will likely be your first point of contact.
