Most Frequently Asked General Dentistry Questions

What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry integrates a wide array of diagnosis, treatment, and management services to help you manage your overall oral health care needs. Some major general dentistry services include dental cleanings and exams, gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventative education.

What Services Does a General Dentist Provide?

General dentists serve as your primary oral health care provider. They usually perform preventative care such as regular teeth cleanings, root canals, fillings, and may offer minor restorative procedures. However, they can also provide cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening and dental bonding.

Can a General Dentist Do Root Canals and Crowns?

Many general dentists provide root canal treatment in their office and refer complicated cases to endodontists. An endodontist is a professional dentist who is specialized in doing only root canals.

A general dentist can perform a dental crown procedure. However, depending on how complicated your case is, you may be referred to a prosthodontist. A prosthodontist is trained in complex techniques of teeth replacement, such as placing a dental implant to support a crown.

What to Look for When Selecting Your Dentist?

You should look for answers to these questions when selecting the right dentist:

  • Is the location easily accessible to you?
  • Will the office hours suit your schedule?
  • Are you comfortable with the dentist’s approach to dental care, including the use of medications to help you relax during treatment?
  • What is the practice's policy on missed appointments?
  • What are the service charges?
  • Does the dentist accept your insurance plan?
