General dentists are some of the most common providers of dental care. They differ from specialists in that they provide several different services regarding oral healthcare to help patients in Edgartown keep their teeth in great condition. During a typical visit to Edgartown Dental Group, patients will have a routine cleaning done by a member of our dental staff. The cleaning is done as part of preventive services to prevent possible problems with your dental health such as decay, gum disease, and root canals. Our dentists will complete a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and tongue and instruct you on how to care for your teeth.
General dentists can also provide restorative care to teeth. These services help repair any damage done to the teeth or gums due to decay or trauma. This includes dental procedures like dental implants, fillings, crowns, and bridges, and even the implementation of mouthguards. Restorative care also covers patients who are suffering from cracked, chipped, or knocked-out teeth. In the case of a dental emergency, we will be able to assist our patients promptly.
A general rule of thumb for dental visits is to try and see our dentists at least twice a year for your regular cleaning. With that being said, each patient is different, and some may have dental needs that will require them to come in more often.
