General dentistry appointments help prevent issues like cavities, gum disease, and plaque buildup. Restorative procedures address issues like tooth decay and damaged teeth.

You also receive guidance on proper oral hygiene practices, educating you about effective brushing, flossing, and overall dental care.

What happens at an initial general dentistry exam?

During an initial general dentistry exam, Dr. Shahbazi conducts a thorough evaluation of your oral health. This typically includes a professional cleaning, visual examination, X-rays, and possible additional diagnostic procedures. 

She looks for signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and any other potential concerns. Based on her findings, she can recommend a treatment plan as needed, tailored to your needs.

Why are general dentistry appointments important?

General dentistry appointments allow your dentist to catch and address dental issues in the early stages, preventing them from escalating into more severe problems. 

These appointments are opportunities to receive personalized guidance on maintaining optimal oral hygiene and making positive lifestyle choices for better dental health.

In addition, many don’t realize that general dentistry plays a vital role in your overall health. Dental problems can impact your ability to eat, speak, and even smile confidently. Your oral health is also linked to health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems. 

By prioritizing general dentistry appointments, you're taking care of your smile and contributing to your overall well-being.
