What is General Dentistry?

The general dental services that Dr. Shah offers include procedures with the following common goals:

  • To help you to preserve your natural teeth as long as possible

  • To ensure your oral health

  • To keep you looking and feeling great throughout life

As an essential component of general health, oral health is important to maintain. By maintaining the health of your teeth, gums and other oral tissues, you can prevent common oral infections and serious general health conditions such as cardiovascular disease.

Starting early will encourage health-promoting habits. Even toddlers can benefit from a trip to the dentist's office to be examined for early signs of tooth decay. Every stage of life carries with it particular oral health concerns, and it’s our team’s goal to address every one of them.

What qualifications should I look for in a general dentist?

Dr. Shah completed a four-year dental school program and then took a rigorous exam to become licensed to practice in the state of Georgia. She continues to periodically take continuing education courses to stay abreast of new research and technology.

When should I visit the dentist?

Many people wait to see their dentist until they are in pain, which is truly a shame. They are not only missing out on so many preventive services that save discomfort, but they are also missing out on saving on expenses. By visiting MaconSmiles on a regular basis, you will be making sure that oral health problems, such as tooth decay to oral cancer, are detected and treated in a timely manner. Sometimes patients may need to see Dr. Shah more often than others to stay on top of problems like plaque buildup and gum disease; however, we recommend that everyone visit us at least once a year.

What happens during a dental visit?

Your regular dental visits will include the following procedures:

  • A thorough oral exam to check the health of your teeth and gums

  • Oral cancer screening to spot any suspicious signs early

  • A professional cleaning to remove stubborn deposits and make your teeth look and feel great

So don't miss out on the many benefits our dentist Dr. Shah can offer to you and your family!
