What is general dentistry?
General dentists are the ultimate experts on all things oral health. They offer treatments to protect and maintain your mouth, gums and teeth, keeping your smile healthy. Think of a general dentist as a GP — ultimately, their goal is to prevent and diagnose oral health issues. A general dentist is capable of offering routine maintenance and restorative treatments.
Why is general dentistry necessary?
Most people go to a dentist when they already feel pain. But seeing your dentist every six months offers many benefits:
- Detects dental problems before they worsen — You may not know it, but your lifestyle and habits might be causing cavities to form. Seeing your dentist regularly makes it easy to detect them before they cause more serious, long-term damage to your teeth.
- More beautiful, brighter smile — Home dental hygiene is great, but it can’t reach all of your teeth. That’s where professional cleaning comes in. It removes buildup and harmful bacteria, giving you a more appealing and healthy smile.
- Better overall health — You might not be aware, but your oral health can greatly impact your general health. For example, poor oral hygiene is often associated with diabetes and heart conditions, so it’s important to see your dentist regularly so you can keep track of your oral health.
Make your oral health a priority and schedule a visit with one of our general dentists today.

What are the risks of poor oral health?
We all know that not brushing our teeth and flossing daily can lead to cavities, tooth decay and bad breath. But gum health is just as important as tooth health. Gingivitis is a form of gum disease that, when left untreated, can lead to periodontitis or more serious issues.
Studies have shown that periodontitis can affect our cognitive abilities, making us more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, the bacteria that form on your gums and teeth can enter your bloodstream and form blood clots, restricting the flow of blood in your body.
These are just some risks associated with poor oral health. Schedule a visit with one of our dentists today to assess your oral health or learn more about how we can help correct your dental concerns.
Can an orthodontist do general dentistry?
Yes, since orthodontists started as general dentists, they can offer advice in this area if necessary. However, most orthodontists prefer to perform dental procedures aligned with their specialisations. Orthodontists do more than just cosmetic dentistry — they also deal with dental issues that cause pain, speech impairment, problems eating and tooth decay.
