What is General Dentistry?
General dentistry is a branch of oral healthcare that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating common dental issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. General dentists are most people’s primary dental care providers and perform a wide range of procedures.
In addition to treating dental problems, general dentists also provide education and guidance to their patients on maintaining good oral hygiene practices and healthy lifestyle choices that promote good dental health. General dentistry is an essential part of your overall health and well-being, as oral health is closely linked to many other health conditions and diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dentists usually recommend seeing a general dentist every six months for a routine check-up and cleaning. However, the frequency of your visits may depend on your individual oral health needs. Your dentist may recommend more frequent visits if you have certain conditions, such as gum disease or a history of cavities.
The cost of general dentistry can vary depending on your services, location, and dental insurance coverage. It’s important to check with your dentist’s office for a cost estimate before any procedures are performed. Dental insurance may cover some or all of the costs of your treatments, so it’s worth checking with your provider to understand your coverage.
Yes, adults can get dental sealants. Although dentists often recommend dental sealants for children and teenagers, adults at high risk of developing tooth decay may also benefit from them. Your dentist can evaluate your dental health and determine whether sealants are an appropriate treatment option.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children should visit a pediatric dentist for their first dental appointment by age one or within six months of the first tooth erupting, whichever comes first. This early dental visit allows the dentist to assess the child’s oral health and oral hygiene practices, including proper brushing and flossing techniques, and offer advice on diet and nutrition for healthy teeth and gums.
