General Dentistry

General dentistry covers a range of treatment options and procedures fundamental to protecting and maintaining a good standard of oral health.

What is general dentistry?

Regular visits to your general dentist are pivotal to ensuring your mouth, teeth and gums remain healthy. However, it’s estimated over a quarter of adults in the UK only visit their dentist when a problem arises. Why do so many people put off visiting their dentist? It’s not uncommon to be nervous or anxious when visiting the dentist. Many people are also concerned about the financial aspect of treatment and regular checkups.

However, you wouldn’t be alone if the reason you do not visit your general dentist is due to a misunderstanding of how important check-ups are, what they cover and aim to achieve. In this post, we will discuss what general dentistry is and why it is so important to have routine examinations.
Fissure Sealants
Fissure sealants or dental sealants refers to a plastic which the dentist bonds into the grooves of the chewing surface of a tooth as a means of helping to prevent the formation of tooth decay (cavities).
