General Dentistry Q&A



What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is focused on preserving and improving the overall health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. The team at Greenwich Dentistry offers top-quality general dentistry for all ages.

The dentists use the iTero® intraoral camera to closely examine your oral health without the need for invasive procedures. They regularly perform routine cleanings, X-ray services, and fluoride treatments for preventive care.

The team evaluates your lifestyle and other health conditions and how these might influence your oral health. Greenwich Dentistry can fit you with mouthguards for sports or night guards to reduce tooth grinding during sleep.

Whatever your dental needs, general dentists partner with you to give you a healthy smile. If you have damaged or missing teeth, the general dentists at Greenwich Dentistry can recommend restorative procedures like dental implants, crowns, and bridges.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Everyone should get routine dental cleanings every six months, according to the American Dental Association. In addition to your semi-annual visits to the dentist, you might need more frequent visits if you have orthodontic braces or another type of dental appliance.

Babies should have their first dental check-up within six months after getting their first tooth. Regular dental appointments are important for your health throughout childhood, teen, and adult years. Even if you don’t have any remaining natural teeth and wear dentures, visiting the dentist is important to preserve gum and jaw health.

Between appointments, brush and floss twice a day, every day. Don’t hesitate to contact the office if you have any questions about your oral health.

What are the benefits of regular dental visits?

You only get one set of permanent teeth. Regularly visiting the dentists at Greenwich Dentistry ensures you have your healthiest possible smile throughout your life.

Many common dental problems are easier to treat when they’re caught early and the team partners with patients of all ages to give them their best chances at great oral health. The dentists help children establish healthy hygiene habits from the start, and they’re there to monitor your mouth health as your needs change throughout life.

Routine dental cleanings and fluoride treatments reduce your risk of cavities and decay. If issues are identified, your dentist can recommend orthodontics to properly align teeth, extractions when necessary, and implants or dentures to replace missing teeth.

Establishing a relationship with the general dentists at Greenwich Dentistry helps keep your teeth and your mouth healthy. Book a dental cleaning online or call the team for an appointment.
