What is general dentistry?
General dentists have training in all aspects of oral health, with a particular focus on preventive care. They provide checkups, cleanings, advice, and a broad range of treatments. Your general dentist is the one you turn to for oral health concerns from toothaches to tooth loss.
A skilled and experienced dentist, such as Dr. Isaacson, can treat the majority of cosmetic and oral health concerns, in the comfort of a familiar environment. Even exceptionally complex cases that require a specialist often begin with a visit to the general dentist, who performs diagnostics, makes a referral, and works in cooperation with other dental professionals. The general dentistry practice is your “dental home.”
The specific services offered in general dentistry practices will vary, depending on the dentist’s expertise and facilities. Dr. Isaacson has more than 15 years of experience, and hundreds of hours of continuing education. Our office is equipped with cutting-edge technology, enabling us to provide a range of services including:
- Preventive care – Never underestimate the importance of routine biannual dental visits. This appointment includes teeth cleaning and polishing, as well a comprehensive examination, advice, and guidance. We also offer mouth guards, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and other preventive services that reduce your risk of oral disease or injury.
- Diagnostics – Virtually all oral health problems are progressive. Fractures invite decay, cavities spread, gum disease can lead to tooth loss… The list of examples is endless, but they all have one thing in common. Early detection and treatment can save time, pain, money, and maybe even your teeth.
- Restorative and corrective procedures – When problems develop, we offer a full range of services to get your smile back on track. This includes cavity fillings, crowns, bridges, root canal therapy, adult orthodontics, and much more.
- Cosmetic dentistry – Do you love the way your smile looks? If not, we can fix that! With aesthetic services ranging from teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, and even full smile makeovers, we are sure to have the solution your smile needs.
- Snoring and apnea treatment – Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that causes the individual to stop breathing repeatedly while sleeping. We offer comfortable sleep appliances, which are often quite effective for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea who are seeking an alternative to CPAP.
Benefits of family dentistry
Many patients ask if general dentistry and family dentistry are the same. The answer is, not quite. A general dentist cares for most of the patient’s oral health needs. However, that doesn’t always mean they take all patients. Many practices limit their clientele to a specific age range, such as only adults. A true family dental practice welcomes patients of all ages and recognizes the unique needs that come with every stage of life. Why choose family dentistry?
- Comprehensive care in one convenient location – You’re busy. We understand. That is why we offer a full range of dental services for every member of your family, under one roof. From teething infants to senior citizens with special oral health needs, we provide highly customized care.
- A dental home for life – Early dental visits might be stressful or even frightening for children. They don’t know what to expect, and usually aren’t comfortable with a stranger looking in their mouths. Thankfully, with the help of a caring and gentle dental team, this anxiety is short-lived. Soon, kids get to know the dentist, hygienist, and other staff members. They feel comfortable, even happy, when going to the dentist. Unfortunately, if a practice treats children exclusively, they will soon have to repeat the uncomfortable process of getting to know a new dentist.
- Healthy smiles a family matter – Did you know that many oral health problems are hereditary? Additionally, hygiene habits (both good and bad) are often passed from parents to children, because the little ones learn by observation. A true family dentist has the unique opportunity to observe patterns and see a much clearer picture of everyone’s oral health.
