That’s a good question. Before delving into the answer, let’s first begin by defining the field of Dentistry.
Dentistry involves the assessment, treatment, and prevention of diseases and disorders of the mouth, jaw, face, and/or related and adjoining structures and their impact on the body. A dentist provides such services both surgically and non-surgically in accordance to their experience and training.
After a dental student graduates, they can start practicing as a general dentist or continue their education and specialize. As with many professions, most particularly in healthcare, there are general providers and specialists. A dental specialist concentrates in treating certain dental conditions and/or specific oral structures. Most dentists practice as general dentists.
A general dentist is your primary care dental provider. They oversee your general oral healthcare needs. Such services involve exams, cleanings, and gum care. As well, a general dentist teaches you how to properly brush and floss. Such services are preventative, in that they attempt to avert gum disease, decay, trauma, cavities, and other problems. If problems do occur, general dentists also perform restorative services, such as fillings and crowns.
Other services a general dentist typically provides also include:
• dental implants
• cosmetic procedures
• dental implants
• mouth guards
• gum disease treatment
• nutrition counseling
• oral surgery
• root canal therapy
All general dentists have earned either a DDS (doctor of dental surgery) or a DMD (doctor of dental surgery). Curriculum requirements are the only real difference between the two. Certain schools award DDS degrees, while others award DMD degrees.
Since 1987, Integrity Dental has been delivering the highest level of service and aims to maintain and restore the oral health of all its patients to an optimum level. It offers all the preventative and restorative services general dentistry provides, as well as Orthodontics, Implants, and Laser Dentistry Dural.
Integrity Dental gives every patient the highest quality care, beginning from the moment they enter the waiting room, which is specially designed for comfort and relaxation, for both kids and adults. During treatment, patients can watch television or a movie from the screen on the ceiling or listen to music through earplugs or headphones. For some patients, movies, television, and music don’t supply adequate relaxation. Integrity General Dental Clinic can offer such patients nitrogen gas, which is more commonly known as happy gas or arrange twilight dentistry (sleep dentistry).
To Integrity Dental, the relationship begins with the initial phone call. Such is when the patient learns to trust and feel confident. Then, the first appointment involves a consultation in which the dentist thoroughly examines the patient’s mouth and determines whether there are any issues that require attention.
