What Is General Dentistry?
General dentistry is the practice of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of each patient’s overall dental health needs. With the help of general dental care, we can keep your smile healthy and ward off common oral health issues such as cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and more. During your routine visits, our team of professionals will perform full-mouth examinations, teeth cleanings, and other necessary treatments.

Dental Hygiene at Home
Along with visiting our Triad dental office twice a year, maintaining excellent dental hygiene at home plays a big part in your overall oral health. Here are some tips that can help you avoid developing oral diseases and keep your smile shining bright:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste
- Floss at least once a day
- Decrease your sugar intake
- Eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables
- Avoid tobacco products
- Seek professional dental care, especially if you’re experiencing pain or other abnormal symptoms
Frequently Asked Questions
Flossing removes bacteria that hide in between your teeth. It also massages gum tissue and stimulates circulation to the tissue. When patients don’t floss, the bacteria isn’t removed and can irritate the gum tissue, leading to gingivitis. This is why we recommend flossing once a day, preferably right before bedtime.
Yes, it’s important to visit your general dentist at least twice a year! Even if you have a pristine oral hygiene routine, there are hard-to-reach areas that are easily missed at home. By visiting a general dentist, they can use special dental tools to clean those areas and leave your mouth feeling refreshed and healthy.
General dentists are also able to fully examine your mouth and catch any signs pointing to oral disease. To schedule your routine dental appointment at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, call our Archdale office at (336) 434-3186.
