If you are confused on what kind of dentist you should visit, keep reading to get a general overview of the differences between a cosmetic dentist and a general dentist. Veteran dentist Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, DDS, recommends taking your time in making your choice and to ask as many questions as you like about the things that are particularly important to you. His belief is that the first thing a patient and dentist should be able to do is communicate well.
General dentists handle the primary care for individuals and families. Their focus is on prevention, education and treating conditions such as periodontal disease, repairing decay, doing restorations, cleanings and routine x-rays.
Many general dentists refer their patients out to specialists for certain types of procedures such as root canals, dental surgery and dental implants. General dentists focus on oral health overall, taking care of the routine procedures including educating their patients on how to properly brush, floss and take care of their teeth. Prevention of periodontal disease and inflammation is one of the main focuses of a general dentist not only to prevent decay, but to prevent health conditions that are now linked to poor oral health.
Both general and cosmetic dentists work hard to have their patients looking and feeling their best. The focus of a cosmetic dentist is to restore beauty as well as function to the teeth as in many cases the cause of cosmetic flaws are missing teeth, aging restorations, misaligned teeth and discoloration.
