The practice of general dentistry includes both restorative and preventative services that are essential for ensuring dental health. A general dentist is your first line of defense in preventing tooth decay and gum disease, and consulting with you about any dental concerns you may have. At our Orange County dentist office, we believe that focusing on your needs is the best way to provide you with high-quality, compassionate dental care.
What Does General Dentistry Involve?
General dentistry refers to dental care that involves all aspects of preventative dental care, such as routine cleanings, exams, and x-rays. A general dentist will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that will optimize the health of your teeth and gums. This also includes referring you to a specialist to ensure that you receive the best care possible.
However, our goal is to make your dental care easy, and Dr. Robertson has chosen to pursue additional training in specialty areas like cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, and treatment for TMJ, to name a few. This comprehensive care reduces the number of dentists you need to see to maintain your dental health.
What Are the Benefits of Seeing a General Dentist?
The primary benefit of seeing a general dentist is that you have access to a professional who can provide you with the preventative dental care necessary to maintain a healthy mouth and detect any signs of tooth decay and gum disease. Other benefits include:
Convenience: We provide you with all of your basic dental health needs, from exams and cleanings to fillings. We also offer you additional services, such as solutions for snoring, treatment for TMJ, and orthodontics for children and adults.
Relationship: Trusting your oral health care to a dentist is based on establishing a long-term relationship. Since you need to visit us twice a year for checkups and for any other dental needs you have, we can get to know and understand what type of care you need to achieve excellent oral health. This allows us to work with you to develop a long-term plan to maintain your oral health, and for you to be comfortable talking about your needs.
Emergency Care: If you lose a filling or have another emergency, we are here to help you get the care you need. As an existing patient, you can be confident knowing that professionals you know and trust are handling your emergency dental care.
We never stop learning and improving our dental practice, and we’re proud to offer all kinds of innovate and state-of-the-art dentistry treatments. For example, we utilize safe digital X-rays, and help patients with user-friendly treatments for TMJ dysfunction and sleep apnea. Think of us as your partners in dental care. We are here to support you as you move toward a beautiful and healthy smile.
