What is general dentistry?

Achieving and maintaining optimal oral health is the goal of general dentistry. General dentists at Franklin Square Dental provide dental treatments including routine, professional dental cleanings and exams, as well as comprehensive restorative treatments designed to save your teeth, and cosmetic dentistry to help you love your healthy smile.

Think of your general dentist as your dental primary care provider. Franklin Square Dental diagnoses, treats, and manages all of your health care needs including cleanings, exams, fillings, root canals, gum care, veneers, and bridges. General dentists also educate you about preventive care to reduce your risk of needing extensive dental work in the future.

How does general dentistry prevent dental problems?

Franklin Square Dental encourages you to visit the practice once every six months for a thorough dental cleaning to remove hardened plaque from your teeth and gum lines, along with stains and tartar that regular brushing and flossing at home are unable to remove. 

Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is the key to preventing dental problems like cavities, root canals, and gum disease. 

At each preventive cleaning appointment, the team also conducts an exam to identify possible problems in their early stages, when they are easiest to fix. They also identify signs of gingivitis, gum disease, and oral cancer. 

Franklin Square Dental takes X-Rays about once per year to get a closer look at areas between the teeth, under existing fillings, and under the gum line that can’t be seen with the naked eye.

When should I call for general dentistry appointments?

In addition to twice-annual cleanings and exams, you should call Franklin Square Dental for an appointment anytime you experience:

  • Tooth pain
  • Swollen gums or face
  • Loose permanent teeth
  • Loose crowns or dental fillings

You should also schedule general dentistry appointments if you want to discuss possible cosmetic treatments to improve your smile, like veneers or Invisalign® for teeth straightening.

If you experience a dental emergency such as trauma or injury to the teeth that can’t wait for a future scheduled appointment, Franklin Square Dental also provides emergency dentistry after-hours. To schedule a routine appointment for general dentistry or make an emergency dentistry appointment call the practice or use the online booking tool.
