General Dentistry Q & A
What is general dentistry?
General dentistry is a field of dental medicine that focuses on the oral health and wellness of every member of the family. General Dentists provide services that both prevent and treat the most common dental issues, and they are committed to helping you have the best overall health possible.
There are around 143,000 dentists in the United States, and around 80% of them are general dentists. Like Dr. Moskowitz, they offer a wide range of treatment options for the purposes of:
Prevention of tooth decay and protection of your oral health begins in childhood and includes regular checkups, X-rays, and cleanings.
When you do have tooth decay, misalignment issues, broken teeth, tooth pain, or periodontal disease, restoration and treatment are important to prevent long-term complications.
When your teeth are healthy, but may not look as you would like, cosmetic dentistry can help with services like veneers and teeth whitening.
Oral health can impact your overall health, and conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and pregnancy can significantly affect your oral health.
It is important to care for yours and your family’s oral health throughout your lifetime to have the best overall health possible.
