What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry is a more broad term for various dental treatments that share a few common goals.  These goals include:

  • Preserving Your Natural Teeth

  • Maintaining Optimal Oral Health

  • Keep Your Smile Looking Great & Keep You Feeling Confident

Keeping you in good oral health is especially important, because your oral health has a very heavy influence on the overall health of your body. 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 dental team’s goal to address every one of them.

What Do General Dentistry Procedures Include?

At Macon Smiles, we ensure that you have access to all of the dental treatments that you need to stay healthy. The general dentistry procedures that we provide include:

  • Cleanings and Oral Exams - professional cleanings and regular check ups help keep your teeth and gums healthy and catch early signs of dental disease.

  • Crowns and Bridgework - tooth replacement treatments that restore your smile after damage or losing teeth.

  • Extractions - remove unhealthy teeth that cannot be saved.

  • Fillings - restore teeth from tooth decay and protect from further damage.

  • Oral Cancer Screenings - detect a dangerous disease that can be cured if caught early.

  • Removable Dentures - For more advanced tooth replacement cases, helping you smile again with a natural-looking, comfortable dental appliance.

  • Sealants - a special treatment that protects teeth from cavities.

How Can I Tell If A General Dentist Is Good?

A few factors that separate a great dentist from a normal one, is their experience in the field, and a commitment to continued education. Experience working with patients means that the dentist has had more time to refine and perfect their craft, while continued education shows their commitment to their patients by always providing the latest and greatest in dental treatments and procedures.  

Dr. Shah has not only been serving the Macon and the surrounding communities since 1996, but she also continues to take continuing education courses to stay abreast of new research and technology.

When Should I Go To The Dentist?

Visits to your dentist should be, at the very least, consistent. If you wait until you’re in pain you are not only missing out on so many preventive services that save discomfort, but you are also missing out on saving on expenses. We recommend scheduling an appointment with us at Macon Smiles at least once a year. By visiting us on this 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. In some cases, patients may need to see Dr. Shah more often than others to stay on top of problems like plaque buildup and gum disease.

If you’re wondering how often you should be coming in for a dental check up, give us a call and schedule your appointment for a consultation. From there, we’ll work with you create a personalized treatment plan for you.

What Happens During A Dental Visit?

While the list of general dental treatments is extensive, your general dental appointments will always cover some very necessary things to ensure that you have good oral health, and determine if you need further dental treatment.  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!
