General Dentistry Q&A

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is the branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, managing, and treating dental problems, including:

  • Gum problems
  • Sensitive or painful teeth
  • Cavities
  • A toothache
  • Chips or cracks
  • Discolored teeth

While general dentists like Dr. Dagli provide many different services to enhance your smile, one of the main focuses of general dentistry is early detection of oral health issues; the earlier you catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it.  

What are general dentistry services are offered?

At Plainsboro Dental Services, Dr. Dagli and her staff provide a variety of critical general dentistry services, including:

Dental cleanings

Even if you brush and floss regularly, coming in for dental cleanings at least twice a year should be a staple of your oral health care routine. A professional cleaning helps remove stubborn plaque and tartar you may have missed and often includes an assessment of your overall oral hygiene, including tips for improvement.

Diagnostic laser cavity detection

Using cutting-edge laser technology, Dr. Dagli easily detects signs of decay early on when treatment is most effective. Catching decay promptly, before it causes serious harm to your teeth or gums, is an essential part of preventive dental care

Digital x-rays

Dr. Dagli uses digital imaging to evaluate your teeth, which allows her to take more precise, detailed pictures of your teeth while using less radiation than conventional dental x-rays. Digital images allow her to more effectively detect subtle changes to your teeth and signs of gum disease as well as plan for procedures such as dental implants.

Why is general dentistry important?

General dentistry is one of the most important parts of your overall dental health. With a focus on preventive measures, a good general dentist helps you avoid more significant problems, such as decay, advanced gum disease, and more. It also helps catch signs of trouble early on before more invasive procedures are required.

Paying attention to general dentistry can save you both the time and money associated with more complex dental procedures. The best way to avoid serious problems with your teeth is by getting out in front of them. That means maintaining regular visits and dedicating yourself to good oral hygiene practices at home. Plainsboro Dental Services’ general dentistry practice can be a big help in your path to excellent oral health.
