General dentistry covers a wide range of treatments and services, from preventive care to restorative procedures. As general dentists, our team at Navid Family Dental & Associates in Peabody, MA, can help patients of all ages improve and maintain both the health and appearance of their smiles. Our dentists perform everything from oral cancer screenings to full mouth reconstructions for patients with multiple missing teeth. Caring for your oral health not only protects your teeth, it also contributes to your total body health. At your regular biannual appointments, we can create custom treatment plans to manage any oral health concerns and identify potential signs of other issues, such as diabetes and sleep apnea.
What Is General Dentistry?
General dentists focus on prevention, but can also diagnose and treat issues affecting your teeth, gums, and jaw. To achieve a degree in general dentistry, our dentists have studied a wide range of topics and become well-versed in how to maintain good oral hygiene, dental function, and health. In addition, general dentists learn how to perform restorative procedures, such as denture design, and cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening.
When to See a General Dentist
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist at least once every six months for regular checkups and examinations. These visits can prevent you from developing more serious oral health issues which require more extensive and expensive treatment. However, you may visit our office due to an injury to a tooth or because you want to improve the health and appearance of your smile.
With multiple doctors and a skilled staff, our team can handle a wide range of concerns and needs.
