General Dentistry Q&A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry involves all the preventive and restorative treatments that help you preserve a beautiful smile. 

You benefit from routine checkups and professional cleanings, during which your provider may catch problems before they become significant. General dentistry also includes education about how to care for your teeth in between visits. 

General dentistry treatments offered at Federal Way Dental include: 

  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Dental implants
  • Sports and night guard assessments
  • Evaluations for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures
  • Periodontal disease maintenance

Having a trusted general dentistry provider means you have someone to turn to at all times, including dental emergencies. 

How often should I schedule general dentistry visits?

See the team at Federal Way Dental at least every six months for professional cleanings and comprehensive oral exams. If you have a history of periodontal disease or other oral health problems, more frequent visits may be necessary. Your provider customizes the appropriate schedule for you. 

What preventive services can I expect from general dentistry?

During standard general dentistry visits, you typically undergo an oral exam and a teeth cleaning. Your dental exam is a time for your provider to identify any possible concerns that could affect your long-term oral health, including signs of gum disease, decay, or cancer. 

Once a year, you need a digital X-ray to help your dentist see beneath the surface of your gums to look for underlying issues, like cavities or impacted teeth. If any problems are found, your provider schedules an appointment in the near future for treatment. 

You also benefit from professional cleanings that help remove the plaque and tartar that your at-home toothbrush just can’t reach. You leave with polished teeth that feel clean and smooth.

Does general dentistry include restorative services?

If you have a tooth problem that needs attention, general dental services include restorative dentistry. The team at Federal Way Dental can get you the timely and appropriate care necessary to restore your smile. Fillings, crowns, and dental implants are examples of restorations that help you maintain a healthy and complete smile.
