When you hear the terms general dentist and general dentistry, you may find yourself wondering what they mean. At Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry, we make sure you know everything you need to about general dentistry so that you can make informed decisions about your oral health for years to come.
What Is a General Dentist?
General dentists are similar to primary healthcare providers in that they provide dental treatments for patients of all ages. We oversee, diagnose, treat, and manage your overall oral health. At Riccobene Family Dentistry, we form trusted, long-term relationships with our patients and create personalized treatment plans to meet your unique needs.
How Often Should I See a General Dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends that you visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning, exam, and X-rays. Regular cleanings can keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape and frequent exams give your general dentist the opportunity to catch any potential dental issues before they turn into larger, more complex problems.
