General dentistry involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a wide range of dental conditions, as well as the maintenance of overall oral health for patients of all ages. This comprehensive care from a general dentist is usually the only source of care patients require for their dental needs. There are several different types of specialties, but general dentistry encompasses the basics of these specialties.
Many conditions damage the tooth causing aesthetic and functional changes that require special treatment. Restorative treatments can repair or replace teeth depending on the extent of their damage or decay. Some of the restorative procedures include:
- Dental Crowns and Bridges
- Dental Implants
- Root Canals
