General Dentistry

General dentists are the main providers of dental care to people of all ages in populations worldwide.

For most people, the general dentist is the most likely primary dental care provider if you have an acute dental condition like a toothache. There’s a good reason for that, because the general dentistry is uniquely geared toward the prevention as well as the treatment of dental disease.

By placing a strong emphasis on oral disease prevention and maintenance, general dentists contribute significantly to the stemming of oral disease progression. If left untreated, acute or chronic dental diseases eventually result in pain, multiple dental clinic visits, loss of time and all these at a potential hefty cost.


What Do General Dentists Do?

General Dentists are trained to perform a wide array of procedures. Below are some (not exhaustive) general dentistry procedures:-

    • Preventive services — At your routine dental visit, a thorough examination of your teeth and oral tissues is done. Diagnostic x-rays may be taken. Before you proceed with the prophylactic procedures like scaling and polishing, any disease pattern is identified and the treatment options discussed with you.
      Your regular dental check-ups are important to maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes its toll in your mouth. Our goal is to preserve as many teeth as possible for you for health and function for as long as we can.


    • Restorative Services — When a problem is found, your dentist will ensure you get timely and appropriate treatment.


    • Fillings — Probably the most common dental restoration involves removing tooth decay and placing a filling to restore the form and function of the affected tooth.


    • Gum treatment — General dentists can diagnose and treat the causes of tooth pain or periodontal (gum) disease. It is important that gum disease is treated early to prevent eventual loss of teeth. Very often, gum disease may be a result of underlying medical health issues like uncontrolled diabeties. Gum disease may also lead to cardiovascular conditions if left untreated


  • Root canal treatment — A root canal infection may be one of the worse pains one can experience. These could result from gross decay or a fractured tooth. in which case root canal treatment is done as long as the tooth is viable for long term function.


  • Crowns — If a tooth is massively decayed, restored with large fillings, or has had root canal treatment done and discoloured, a crown may be recommended as a more definitive solution to reinforce the strength of the tooth to prolong its long term function in the mouth.


  • Tooth replacement — For people with missing teeth due to disease or trauma, implants, bridges, or dentures can be done to replace those missing units. In addition to the standard training, some general dentists receive special training in dental implantology


  • Cosmetic Procedures — Cosmetic dentistry can sometimes be the alternative to braces. If you’re concerned about small gaps between your teeth or crowding/malalignment of your teeth, porcelain veneers or composite bonding may just be the option for you. You’ll be pleasantly surprised that it’s more than just your teeth that will look good, but your facial aesthetics will most probably be enhanced greatly. If a brighter smile is what you’re looking for, ask your general dentist about a smile makeover. Get that stunning smile you’ve always wanted.
When Should I See The Dentist?

The short answer is: every six months for preventative services—and otherwise, whenever you have a concern about your oral health. You may have a clear signal (such as a toothache or bleeding gums) that something in your mouth needs attention. Or, you may have heard of a cosmetic procedure that you’d like to find out more about. In either case, don’t hesitate to call the dental office.

In terms of routine dental appointments, there isn’t a single schedule that fits all patients. Depending on your individual circumstances, your dentist may want to see you twice a year, every three months, or another interval. Whatever it is, don’t let those appointments go! Keeping up with the recommended schedule of preventive treatment and practicing effective oral hygiene at home are the two best ways to prevent dental disease—and keep your smile looking bright and healthy for the rest of your life.

Your general dentist will work with you to develop a customized dental hygiene plan that incorporates dental examination, teeth cleaning, possible tooth scaling, X-ray, and use of other diagnostic equipment to prevent, uncover, or treat problems as early as possible.

Your dentist may incorporate a variety of restorative procedures in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that will help prevent decay or disease of the teeth, mouth, gums, and tongue. General dentists also use restorative dentistry procedures to repair the effects of tooth decay, trauma, defect, or disease in these areas of the mouth.

Although typically associated with preventive and restorative dentistry, many dentist’s pursue additional training in order to provide cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to enhance one’s smile and instill self-confidence.

General dentists are the primary dental care providers for patients of all ages. They can treat you and your entire family and care for your overall oral health. This is crucial to your total health. Your general dentist takes responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment and overall coordination of services to meet your oral health needs. If you need a specialized dental procedure performed, your general dentist may work with other dentists to make sure you get the care you need.

The ORAL Concept

Options and Optimization

For our patients, we discuss treatment options and the clinical approach to be taken for their treatment needs, before finalizing their treatment plan. We practice the philosophy of optimal dentistry, which we believe will benefit our patients for the long term.


We are committed to restoring periodontal health as well as restoring the form and function of teeth for our patients. Very often it will require a multi-pronged approach. These include the control of caries, periodontal disease and root canal infections, as well as the reinforcement and replacement of teeth.


Much consideration goes into the aesthetic outcome of the restorations. Often, it’s not only about the tooth and nothing but the tooth, you’ll be amazed how the appearance of the teeth can have a huge impact on facial aesthetics.


We strive to maintain your oral health and aim to save as many of your teeth and have your restorations serve you for a long time to come. The goal of professional dental care is so that you as a patient can derive overall holistic health for life as a result of good oral hygiene and healthy masticatory function.
