General Dentistry


General Dentistry

General dentistry is the overall maintenance of your oral hygiene and the health of your teeth. Dental Concepts have five highly competent general dentists to cater for the dental needs of our clients regardless of age.

We are going to help you customise your dental hygiene plan according to your needs and desires. Your general dentist will diagnose your dental status, facilitate treatments and closely monitor your dental health status to prevent further damage, pains and other diseases.

How to maintain good oral hygiene:

Good oral hygiene keeps your mouth and teeth clean which prevents bad odour, dental problems and diseases.

Plaque is the most common and easily accumulated bacteria on teeth. Sugary and starchy foods mainly cause plaque but so is the failure to brush your teeth and floss religiously. If plaque stays on teeth for a long time, it may cause tooth decay and gum problems. Untreated gum problems can cause further damage by destroying the bone around the teeth making it lose.

Brushing the teeth twice a day and flossing once a day are classic but still the most effective ways to prevent plaque formation. Make sure to choose soft-bristled brushes that fit your mouth correctly to be able to reach all areas. Also, opt for toothpaste that is antimicrobial and contains fluoride. People usually tend to skip flossing because of time constraints and laziness but it should not be the case. Floss at least once a day to remove particles between your teeth that your toothbrush failed to remove. You may also practice rinsing with mouthwash to increase protection from germs.

General dentists provide services including but not limited to the following:

Oral prophylaxis

This is also called professional teeth cleaning. Oral prophylaxis is the basic step to making your teeth healthy. This procedure removes stuck elements in between your teeth that can’t be accomplished by normal tooth brushing. To keep your teeth healthy and avoid deterioration, you must undergo oral prophylaxis twice a year or every six months. For further protection and maintenance, we will also recommend at-home oral hygiene ways and preventive treatments as needed.

Wisdom tooth/teeth

Having a wisdom tooth doesn’t automatically mean that you should go to your dentist and have it removed. We at Dental Concepts always make it a point to study your case first, before recommending any extraction.

Oral surgery or extraction

Unrestorable teeth are usually the ones being extracted. These teeth couldn’t be restored because of several causes like tooth decay, periodontal disease, dental trauma or because they are impacted. Some are extracted to create space when teeth become too crowded.

Root canal treatment

This procedure treats infections formed at the root canal system of the mouth. This usually involves two or more visits to your dentist where the infected pulp is removed and the root canal cleaned and filled.
