The general and family dentist is the first line of defence against health problems with regard to your teeth. Although the titles are often used interchangeably, there are dentists that provide treatment for specific age groups, such as children. A general dentist that treats patients of all ages is a family dentist.
Everyone should visit their dentist twice a year for routine cleaning and evaluation. Having bi-annual exams with your family dentist can help you avoid serious dental problems. In order to maintain your dental health, your family dentist will examine your mouth and teeth and often take x-rays. Regular x-rays can detect early signs of tooth decay and any other problems that might be present in the mouth and jaw.
While the family or general dentist is primarily concerned with the preventive treatment of the teeth, many, like the dentists at Wanniassa Dental Surgery, have undergone further training in a range of restorative and cosmetic procedures including tooth whitening and porcelain veneers.
