General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is the starting point for all of your dental needs. Finding a great general dentist is one of the most powerful things you can do for your oral health and your overall health and wellness. General dentists provide numerous services, including:

Preventive care

These services include routine dental exams to check for signs of decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. You’ll also work with your dentist to create a dental hygiene plan that fits your lifestyle.

Restorative care

These services focus on treating existing dental problems to restore the affected tooth to a healthy condition. Fillings, crowns, root canals, bridgework, and dental implants are all part of restorative care.

Cosmetic care

Not all general dentists offer cosmetic services, but at Bethesda Chevy Chase Dental Care you’ll have access to the latest cosmetic treatments to help your smile sparkle. From teeth whitening to veneers, crowns, and more, cosmetic dentistry can boost your smile and your confidence.

What happens during a general dentistry visit?

The most common type of visit to a general dentist is a routine dental exam. These exams are an excellent opportunity to have a professional examine your teeth, gums, and other tissues for signs of decay and disease.

A professional cleaning is also part of these visits. You’ll love how fresh and clean your mouth feels after a cleaning and how brightly your smile shines.

Routine dental exams are also a chance for you to share your concerns or ask questions about your dental health. Wondering if all-natural toothpaste or dental rinses are effective? Thinking about trying an at-home whitening kit? Wondering if Invisalign is right for you? These are all questions you can ask during your dental exam.

What if I need to see a specialist?

The team at Bethesda Chevy Chase Dental Care can address a wide range of dental health needs, but there could come a time when you need a service that is not available through the practice. If that need arises, your dentist will help you find the right specialist for the job.

While you are receiving specialized care, your dentist remains in contact with your extended care team. This helps ensure a seamless return once your needs are met and also helps keep your dental records up to date and accurate.
