Keeping your smile healthy with General Dentistry Services

At Smyrna Dental & Headache Center in Smyrna, Georgia, we believe that achieving a healthy smile requires more than just brushing and flossing each day. The road to good oral health also involves regularly working with a general dentist who can evaluate and monitor your smile over time. General dentistry is a field of dental care focused on a variety of treatments and services, including:

  • Routine evaluations/examinations
  • X-rays of a patient’s current smile
  • Prophylaxis (Dental cleanings)
  • Periodontal therapy
  • Fluoride and sealant treatments

By working with a dentist who offers general dentistry services, patients can take a proactive approach to their oral health and wellness. Patients who visit their dentist every six months as recommended by the American Dental Association will often enjoy healthier smiles longer than those who only seek reactive care—which means visiting the dentist only when problems arise. Many issues caught in their earlier stages can be addressed much easier and with less cost than in situations where a problem has been avoided and requires emergency dentistry when it begins to cause significant pain or damage to the mouth.

Why should I visit my dentist every six months?

It is recommended that patients of all ages see their dentist every six months to stay abreast of their oral health and wellness. Early signs and symptoms of problems, including pain and sensitivity, should be evaluated to diagnose and treat the underlying issue as soon as possible. Patients who ignore sudden changes in the smile will often experience more expensive and invasive procedures down the road to resolve the problem when it is much too late. We want patients to take a proactive approach to their oral health to maintain beautiful and healthy smiles for life!
