Posted by HEALTHY SMILES OF BIRMINGHAM on Sep 30 2021, 11:22 PM

A healthy, aesthetic, and beautiful set of teeth and overall smile can improve various aspects of one's life, including self-confidence, overall health, and state of mind. However, several problems can affect the aesthetics and health of one's teeth, gums, and overall mouth. In order to prevent these dental concerns or identify and treat them at their initial stages, regular dental visits and teeth checkups are important. Here comes the importance of general dentistry and a visit to the general dentist for biannual dental checkups. 

What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry comprises several simple and elaborate dental procedures that are performed to enhance one's oral health and smile aesthetics. It can be considered a preventive and restorative dental treatment option that helps maintain one's oral health and appearance of the teeth.

At Healthy Smiles of Birmingham, our expert general dentists provide comprehensive dental care to our patients and meet the needs of an entire family belonging to different age groups. We attend to all dental conditions of our patients and offer care and treatment connected with the overall maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health. As a part of general dentistry, we offer preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dental care treatments to help our patients achieve perfect oral health. 

Benefits of General Dentistry. 

  • General Dentists assess the efficiency of your dental hygiene habits, offer advice and recommendations about the same, and help improve the patient's overall oral health.
  • General dentists provide professional, deep teeth cleaning services to eliminate hardened plaque and tartar.
