General Dentistry Q & A
What general dentistry care do I need?
At a minimum, children and adults should see their dentist annually. But most dental authorities recommend checkups every six months. Routine visits can help you avoid future dental problems.
During a cleaning, your practitioner removes plaque and tartar. They also check for gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental problems. If your practitioner spots a problem, they provide treatment.
Severe dental problems might need specialized care. But general dentists can resolve most issues. The experts at Cal Select Dental Group help patients manage a wide range of dental concerns.
When should my child start seeing a dentist?
Ideally, children should visit a dentist soon after their first tooth erupts. Your child needs a full dental evaluation by age 1.
Your practitioner examines your child's mouth and bite. They confirm that your child's teeth are growing in as they should. Your practitioner also offers advice about weaning, diet, and pacifier use.
Early dental visits help children avoid dental anxiety. Childhood dentist visits also build healthy habits that last a lifetime. Cal Select Dental Group teaches your child how to take excellent care of their teeth.
What happens during a general dentistry checkup?
During a routine visit, your practitioner examines your teeth visually. You may also receive annual X-rays. X-rays help your practitioner see what's happening inside your teeth and allow your practitioner to check for problems below the gumline.
Next, you receive a dental cleaning. First, your practitioner removes plaque and tartar. They polish your teeth and apply fluoride. These cleanings reduce your risk of cavities and tooth decay.
Your practitioner also provides expert advice on at-home care. They answer your questions about dental health and tooth protection. Dental visits are a great time to learn more about proper oral hygiene.
What happens if I need further care?
In some cases, your provider may notice a problem during your exam. If you need further care, Cal Select Dental Group helps you review possible treatment. Your practitioner explains your options so you can make an informed choice.
The friendly, helpful office staff schedules your follow-up care and routine cleaning. They work with you to develop a treatment schedule that meets your needs.
