General Dentistry Q & A

What is general dentistry? 

General dentistry is the branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, managing, and treating dental problems, including: 

  • Gum problems
  • Sensitive or painful teeth
  • Cavities
  • A toothache
  • Chips or cracks
  • Discolored teeth

While general dentists provide many different services to enhance your smile, one of the main focuses of general dentistry is early detection of oral health issues, because the earlier you catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it. 

What general dentistry services do you offer? 

At Emery & Scuro DMD, PC, their team provides a variety of critical general dentistry services, including: 

Dental cleanings

Even if you brush and floss regularly, coming in for dental cleanings at least twice a year should be a staple of your oral health care routine. A professional cleaning helps remove stubborn plaque and tartar you may have missed and often includes an assessment of your overall oral hygiene, including tips for improvement. 

Diagnostic laser cavity detection

Using cutting-edge laser technology, your provider can detect early signs of decay when treatment is most effective. Catching decay promptly, before it causes serious harm to your teeth or gums, is an essential part of preventive dental care. 


Your dentist uses X-ray imaging to evaluate your teeth, which allows them to take more precise, detailed pictures of your mouth while using minimal radiation. X-ray images allow your dentist to more effectively detect subtle changes to your teeth and signs of gum disease as well as plan for procedures such as dental implants. 

Why is general dentistry important? 

General dentistry is one of the most important parts of your overall dental health. With a focus on preventive measures, a good general dentist helps you avoid more significant problems, such as decay, advanced gum disease, and more. It also helps catch signs of trouble early on before more invasive procedures are required. 

Paying attention to general dentistry can save you both the time and money associated with more complex dental procedures. The best way to avoid serious problems with your teeth is by getting out in front of them. That means maintaining regular visits and dedicating yourself to good oral hygiene practices at home. With the help of the team at Emery & Scuro DMD, PC, you can achieve excellent oral health.
