Prevention is better than cureGeneral Dentistry

I want to know more about General Dentistry, please!

General dentistry deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of your common dental problems. Maintaining good oral health is essential for general health and wellbeing. Dental problems can lead to pain, infection, broken teeth or even tooth loss, all of which can lower your quality of life. Poor oral health is linked to heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

Regular visits to the dentist can help prevent these concerns and guarantee any issues are identified and treated as early as possible, with the best long term oral health results.

Our philosophy is that prevention is better than cure.

General dentistry includes: a comprehensive new patient consultation, regular checkups and cleanings, to promote good oral health.

We also understand problems can arise and need to be fixed.

General dentistry also includes: white fillings, ceramic crowns, root canal treatments, tooth extractions and partial dentures, to fix teeth or relieve pain and keep you smiling for life.

General Dentistry FAQs

If you don’t want to risk waiting for a big problem or are ready to stop putting off a problem you have already, we have a team of experienced dentists and dental hygienists ready to help you.

Most new general dentistry patients first visit us at Beyond Dental for a New Patient Comprehensive Consultation. We can fully assess, provide options and plan your needs with you, in a calm comfortable environment. You also have the option of attending an Urgent Care/Problem Consult to assess a single problem you may have. We do our best to treat on the same day when indicated, however you may require further appointments to address any treatments required.
