General Dentistry covers comprehensive dental procedures including initial diagnostics. Examples include: wax moulds, CAT scans and x-rays in order to replace teeth. The dentist will use different methods like x-rays and tests to find out the problem before suggesting any treatment.
What to expect
The dentist may take x-rays of your mouth to examine your teeth in order to judge the alignment of your teeth when you bite. Whilst you are sitting on a chair, you will be moved into a reclining position by the dentist for a proper detal examination
The dentist will then look for any signs of decay, plaque build-up, erosion or any other problems. When the dentist has successfully determined the cause of your problem, he/she will use mirrors to show you areas of the mouth that you are unable to see during normal cleaning.
Cleaning and Hygiene
In order to remove plaque from your teeth the dentist might use a small scraping device, you can rest assured that this process is painless. Once the plaque has been removed, the dentist will use an electric brush either with or without fluoride paste to clean your teeth and a final spray of water to rinse your mouth. During the process, a hygienistwill always be present to make sure the process is performed smoothly without any hassle.
