General Dentistry
San Jose CA

General dentists are trained to provide treatment to all types of common oral concerns, both functional and aesthetic. They often offer family services, where they treat all members of a family, irrespective of their ages and dental concerns. Visiting a common general dentist has a few advantages over consulting different dentists for different oral concerns.

General dentistry is a catch-all term that refers to any dental care-related services that aren't specialty care. As such, it's both all-encompassing and broad in scope. Most dental care falls into this category; routine cleanings, examinations, X-rays, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and periodontal therapy are all considered general dentistry procedures.

Routine exams are an integral part of maintaining your oral health and help your dentist identify issues early in their onset to help treat them before they become more advanced or painful. Fillings are used to repair cavities and protect the delicate tooth enamel from further damage. Crowns are placed over damaged teeth, and bridges are used to fill gaps in a smile when a tooth is missing. Root canals treat infections in the roots, while periodontal treatment addresses gum disease that is in its earliest stages. All of these services are categorized as general dentistry because they serve to treat common oral health concerns, not fix specific problems.

No matter the procedure, you can count on a general dentist to provide you and your family with exceptional care at every visit, whether you're coming in for a routine exam or have a specific concern and need advanced dental services

What services do General Dentists offer?

Cosmetic dentistry:The specific branch of dentistry that aims at enhancing the aesthetic of one's smile is called cosmetic dentistry. General dentists offer cosmetic dental treatment in the form of teeth whitening, composite bonding, veneers, crowns, etc.

Restorative dentistry: Dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, bridges, implants, etc., are used to bring the teeth back to their ideal contour, structural integrity, and functionality. Crowns are hollow on the inside and are placed on damaged or misshapen teeth to hold them intact. Bridges and implants are teeth restorations that replace missing natural teeth. They are made from tooth-colored ceramic, which gives them their natural appearance, durability, and strength. Veneers are thin restorations made from a ceramic or composite resin and are bonded to the frontal surface of the teeth.

Orthodontic solutions: Correcting the alignment of the teeth is crucial in improving the functionality and aesthetics of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment can involve tooth movement, as well as corrective devices like braces and retainers, to correct alignment problems. Some patients require more comprehensive orthodontic work that goes beyond just straightening teeth. This could include jaw surgery to close an open bite or lower jaw growth discrepancy. A mouth makeover may also involve orthodontics. We offer orthodontic treatment using aligners such as dental braces or Invisalign.

Routine consultations: Regular dental consultations are required at least once every six months for the dentist to conduct a comprehensive diagnosis of your mouth and detect the onset of any oral infections. We will also perform oral cleanings, place fillings if we spot any cavities, and provide suitable treatment to counter oral diseases.

Pediatric dentistry:Treating infants and children would require a certain approach to make them feel comfortable with the treatment. At Varni Dental, we give a lot of emphasis on this and make sure we approach young patients in a friendly and compassionate manner. We also monitor the growth of their teeth regularly to make sure they develop a pleasing, healthy, and ideally-spaced smile.

What Are The Benefits of General Dentistry?

General dentists provide many preventive services, such as cleanings and exams. They can also provide restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments. It helps patients of all ages maintain beautiful, healthy smiles by preventing and treating common problems before they turn into bigger ones. We recommend visiting for a professional cleaning and exam at least twice a year, so we can monitor your oral health and identify and treat potential problems early. We also recommend following a good oral hygiene routine at home that includes brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, rinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash, and having a balanced diet. We can often prevent gum disease by regularly monitoring gum health and providing recommendations to improve at-home care if needed. If you've already experienced periodontal disease, we can provide treatment to restore health to the gums and prevent further progression. We can also treat cavities to prevent further decay and restore strength and function to your teeth. Other treatment options include treatment for bruxism (teeth grinding), TMJ/TMD therapy, oral cancer screenings, and more.
