Common Questions About General Dentistry

What does general dentistry include?

General dentistry includes several services that are designed to keep your smile in terrific shape. These services include dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, preventive services like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, athletic mouthguards to protect your teeth during sports, and even treatment for bad breath and dry mouth.

How long is general dentistry school?

After four years of undergraduate school, a graduate will go to dental school for four years, getting either a Doctor of Dental Surgery or a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. That’s not the end of their education, however. Doctors need to complete a minimum amount of continuing education each year to maintain their license to practice dentistry.

Can specialists practice general dentistry?

While the response is yes, in actuality specialists do not typically practice general dentistry; they work strictly in their field. That’s why it’s better to go to a general dentist for most of your regular oral care, including restorative and cosmetic dentistry. A general dentist sees all sorts of cases every day and is well equipped to manage a range of dental situations.
