What is general dentistry?
General dentistry includes evaluating, diagnosing, preventing, and treating diseases, disorders, conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area, the adjacent and associated structures, and their impact on the human body. As a General Dentist, Dr. Mohan can develop customized dental hygiene plans which incorporate dental examinations, teeth cleaning, necessary tooth scaling, X-rays, and the use of other diagnostic equipment (such as a CBCT) with the goal of prevention and uncovering and then treating oral health problems as early as possible. General dentistry services consist of elements that are vital to your continued health, including:
- Preventive services (Oral exams, teeth cleanings)
- Restorative services (Fillings, periodontal therapy, etc.)
- Cosmetic procedures (teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, etc.)
The link between your oral health and your general health
You may not realize it, but the state of your oral health may also reflect your overall well-being. Several dental health issues can be related to the health of other parts of your body and vice versa. A great example is looking at somebody with diabetes living with untreated dental infections. These infections can often lead to bacteria entering your bloodstream, causing general health concerns, including difficulty controlling diabetes. Other health concerns linked to poor oral health include cardiovascular disease and pregnancy complications. As a general dentist, Dr. Mohan is trained to identify these issues and offer appropriate treatment or referral as needed.
