General Dentist Las Vegas
General dentistry is the branch of medicine concerned with the health and treatment of the mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. General dentists educate patients and provide preventative care to promote a healthy smile and minimize the need for dental treatments. They work with patients to create the most effective treatment plan for each patient’s needs.
A general dentist does not focus on a particular branch of dentistry, and instead takes a more broad approach in providing care. They are capable of providing common services such as complete dental examinations, cleanings, and extractions. They work with dental prosthetics such as dentures, restorations with inlays, crowns, bridge and fillings, and can perform root canal therapy. For more specialized treatment, a general dentist may refer you to a specialist to get more focused expert care.
General dentistry is most effective in a preventative capacity. Regular visits to a dentist twice a year for examinations and cleanings significantly reduces the risk of decay and serious oral health conditions developing. Identifying these kinds of problems early can prevent the need for more intensive treatments later.
