Why Should People Go to a Comprehensive General Dental Office?
The general dentist is the quarterback for a patient’s treatment plan. If you have a problem with your teeth or gums, you go to the general dentist, who will diagnose the problem and create an overall treatment plan. The plan may include additional appointments, a visit with a specialist, or some other treatment that can be taken care of right there. If there are multiple steps involved in the treatment plan, the general dentist will sequence the order of treatment. Once treatment is completed, the general dentist will maintain the patient’s regular exams and cleanings to detect minor issues in the future.
How Often Should You See a General Dentist?
We recommend getting a professional cleaning and dental exam every six months.
How Does Good Dental Health Impact Your Overall Health?
We know that oral health is not separate from the rest of the body’s overall health and wellness. The presence of bacteria, decay, and infection in an individual’s mouth can have severe systemic health consequences. For example, research shows that the presence of gum disease is related to heart disease, stomach issues, and Alzheimer’s disease. Oral health is a key component to overall health.
If you become aware of changes in your oral health, please schedule an appointment to get them checked out by your general dentist. The changes you notice may include:
- bleeding, swollen, or tender gums
- loosened teeth
- dentures that no longer fit correctly
- shifting teeth, or shifting alignment of your teeth
These symptoms may indicate a bigger problem in your overall health. After examining your mouth, your comprehensive dentist may suggest you see a medical doctor. You should always take your dental health seriously.
