What Is a General Dentist?

Unlike a specialist dentist who may only work with orthodontics or pediatric dentistry, a general dentist has the skill and ability to perform a wider variety of dental procedures on different patients. For this reason, seeing a general dentist for your family’s needs is the perfect way to ensure well-rounded dental care.

A skilled and experienced general dentist will know exactly where their knowledge ends and a dental specialist’s knowledge begins, so you can always get a referral if you need more specialized treatment. However, a general dentist is a great place to start to keep up with your dental health.

The Absolute Dental staff in Carson City is trained in all aspects of general and family dentistry, including exams, x-rays, teeth cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions and more. To provide the best care possible, we always use the latest dental technology, materials, and sterilization techniques, and strictly adhere to the standards of care in the industry. Also, our general dentists are friendly, approachable and have experience working with patients of all ages.

What Does a General Dentist Do?

Dental treatments performed by our Carson City general dentists include:

Teeth Cleaning: The most common procedure in general dentistry is a routine teeth cleaning. Even the best oral hygiene habits can’t keep plaque and bacteria from building up without a professional cleaning.

X-rays: The more information a general dentist has about the workings of a patient’s teeth and gums, the better. Fast and safe x-rays are the first step for most dentists.

Dental Fillings: Cavities and similar problems are common, and fall squarely into the domain of the general dentist. Fillings keep cavities from developing into more major issues, and can also keep teeth looking their best.

Root Canals: When a tooth becomes infected, a root canal is needed. A dentist will drill down into the infected area and remove the bacteria and infected tissue. Most general dentists are comfortable performing this procedure, but a specialist may needed for more severe infections.

Dental Bridges: As treatment for missing teeth, bridges are held in place by crowns that fit over the real teeth surrounding the gap. Again, most general dentists will perform this procedure, but bridging specialists can also be found.

Crowns: Teeth that are broken but uninfected can be capped with a dental crown to strengthen the tooth and prevent further damage.

Dentures: For those missing several teeth, dentures are a great option to improve functionality and the appearance of a patient’s smile.
