What is Family and General Dentistry?

Comprehensive Evaluation

General dentistry covers many essential services that assess patients' oral health, prevent dental problems, and restore teeth to full function. Family and general dentists provide these services to patients of all ages.

Benefits of Family and General Dentistry

Family and general dentists provide significant benefits to their patients. These benefits include:

  • Detecting potential issues before they can become major problems
  • Preventing tooth decay
  • Keeping teeth clean and healthy
  • Preventing and treating gum disease
  • Screening for oral cancer
  • Performing procedures like root canals that relieve pain and restore dental function

Procedures Offered

Preventive Treatments
These procedures include comprehensive oral exams, digital X-rays, oral cancer screenings, and cleanings for patients of all ages. Focusing on preventive care can head off severe dental problems.

Root Canal Therapy
When the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected, it can cause significant pain. General and family dentists perform root canals to clear the infection and preserve the natural tooth. The dentist then places a crown to protect the tooth. Patients may also need a root canal for a cracked or broken tooth.

Sometimes teeth are too decayed or damaged to be saved. In this case, the dentist performs an extraction. To extract a tooth, the dentist gently loosens it with an elevator tool and pulls it out. Extractions may be necessary in cases of extreme decay.

Periodontal Treatment
Treating periodontal disease is a must. Periodontal (gum) disease is associated with heart problems, diabetes, and preterm birth. It occurs when the gums develop deep pockets around the teeth where tartar gathers and infection flourishes. Periodontal disease, when left unchecked, can cause tooth and bone loss.

Regular and Deep Scaling
Dentists perform deep cleanings for patients with periodontal disease, also known as scaling. Scaling removes tartar buildup from the areas around and beneath the gum line. Dr. Park's office provides local anesthesia and nitrous oxide sedation if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I see the dentist regularly?
You should see your dentist twice annually for a comprehensive oral exam and cleaning. You may need more frequent appointments if you have periodontal disease. Regular care means that your dentist can keep an eye on emerging conditions and help you prevent future problems.
How should I care for my teeth at home?
Brush twice a day and floss at least once daily. Use fluoride toothpaste. If you skip flossing, you may make yourself more vulnerable to gum disease. You can also use fluoride mouthwash after your brush, especially if you live in an area with no fluoride added to the water.
Can a root canal save a natural tooth?
Dentists can often save compromised natural teeth by using a root canal to clear an infection and placing a crown. Root canals can also preserve broken teeth in many circumstances.
Are dental X-rays safe?

Digital X-rays use much less radiation than in the past. They are safe for nearly all patients and provide a valuable source of information for the patient and dentist alike.

Digital X-rays take no time to develop, and the dentist can easily show them to the patient to explain where they have issues that need addressing.

What are the symptoms of periodontal disease?

The first sign you may notice is your gums bleeding when you brush or floss. This condition is known as gingivitis, the first sign of gum disease. Fortunately, you can reverse it with proper oral care.

As the disease progresses, symptoms may include bad breath, swollen gums, loose teeth, sensitive teeth, pain when chewing, and pus emerging around the teeth. Call your dentist immediately if you see any of these periodontal disease signs.
