General dentists provide patients with routine services, such as routine cleanings and exams, as well as other treatments that are not considered to be medically necessary. These services can prevent oral health issues from developing, as well as identify and treat any issues that may already be present. They can also perform restorative treatments, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants.

General & Family Dentistry Procedures
They involve procedures that help prevent dental health issues, such as:
Cleaning and scaling
A dental cleaning is done to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and below the gum line. Cleanings are recommended every six months to prevent gum disease.
Scaling is a deep dental cleaning that is done to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and below the gum line. Scaling is recommended when there is excessive plaque and tartar buildup.
Root planing and scaling
A deep cleaning, also known as root planing and scaling, is a procedure that removes plaque and tartar from underneath the gum line. Deep cleanings are usually performed when a patient has gum disease, though those without any symptoms may also need one.
A root canal is a dental procedure that involves removing the infected dental pulp. In many cases, root canal therapy is needed to save a badly decayed tooth. If left unaddressed, the infected tooth and surrounding gum tissues can become even more infected, causing a significant amount of pain.
A crown (or cap) is a prosthetic tooth that completely covers a damaged tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. However, they can also be used to support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining. Many people also choose crowns for cosmetic reasons to cover misshapen or discolored teeth.
Dental fillings are the most common general dentistry procedure. Fillings are used to treat cavities. A cavity is a hole in the tooth that is caused by decay. Cavities are one of the most common dental problems and can happen to anyone.
A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option that uses a porcelain bridge to restore your smile. The bridge is anchored to your existing natural teeth. A dental bridge is custom-made to fit your mouth, so you can expect great results.
