What is general dentistry?

General dentists evaluate, diagnose and help prevent diseases of the oral cavity. They also maintain and improve the function and appearance of the teeth. For conditions beyond the scope of general dentistry, Culp Dental refers patients to specialists for further consultation and treatment.

What are preventive treatments?

The most common preventive treatments and procedures include the following:

  • Dental examinations are performed to diagnose cavities and other conditions. A visual exam is done and X-rays are taken as needed.
  • Routine dental cleanings polish the teeth and remove plaque and tartar. Teeth are cleaned from the gum line. The hygienist may also floss your teeth or show you the proper way to floss.
  • Fluoride treatments strengthen tooth enamel, which helps prevent cavities. Fluoride in a foam or gel form is placed on the teeth after a dental cleaning and is offered annually to children under age 14.
  • Sealants are commonly provided to children and teens. A thin coating of protective material is placed on the teeth to help prevent bacteria and sugar from collecting and forming a cavity.
