Finding the right family dentist to treat your dental problems is important.

General dentistry encompasses a wide range of effective and preventative treatments for your mouth, teeth, and gums.

Our General Dentistry Services

General dentists are responsible for preventing, diagnosing and treating oral diseases, and preserving the function and beauty of teeth. Oral abnormalities and disorders could point to underlying medical conditions. Patients may be referred by a general dentist to a physician or a specialist for additional evaluation or treatment.
Subi Smilemakers offers the following general dentistry services:

Dental Checkup

Check-ups are important because they provide a thorough inspection of underlying oral health issues. A regular check-up will include looking for cavities in your teeth, gum disease, cracks or fractured teeth, examining the condition of existing fillings and health of the lips, mucosa, and all surrounding areas, and much more. Routine check-ups can identify early signs of any problem and cure them before they get worse.

Tooth Extraction

 General dentists can perform tooth extractions quickly and painlessly. Even though removing a tooth is a common procedure, most dentists only do so when necessary. A lost tooth can cause further complications in the mouth in the future. In addition, a dental prosthesis such as a dental implant, dental bridge, dental crown, or denture will be used to replace the lost tooth. 

Root Canal Therapy

A tooth that has a severely infected pulp or nerve may require root canal treatment to remove infection and restore it. Root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) is a painless procedure your general dentist performs to restore the damaged tooth.

Symptoms of tooth pulp damage include unprovoked pain, sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages, painful biting, facial swelling, and swelling of the gum. Occasionally, even if the patient is asymptomatic, X-rays during a check-up can reveal whether an infection is deep within a tooth and has damaged the surrounding soft tissue. The pulp of a tooth will not heal on its own when infected, and delaying treatment may cause the infection to worsen and result in tooth removal.


In general dentistry, mouthguards are protective dental appliances that cover the natural teeth and gums. They are designed and custom-made in a dental laboratory to ensure a perfect fit.

Mouthguards are made of materials that will provide comfort and safety when playing sports and help protect the teeth from trauma.
General dentists recommend another appliance, called an occlusal splint, for patients who grind their teeth at night. A condition called bruxism can lead to permanent damage to the tooth structure. Over time, grinding can cause weakened enamel, leading to cracking, chipping, sensitivity, and even tooth fractures.

An appliance known as a Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS) is recommended to patients with diagnosed sleep apnoea.
Finally, an anti-snoring device can be custom made to help patients who snore at night.

A general dentist is a healthcare provider who takes care of your dental needs. They will be involved in  diagnosis and extensive treatment of diseases affecting the oral cavity and keeping teeth healthy and intact. They educate and advise patients on oral hygiene and diet choices that impact their dental health

As a general rule, it’s essential to see your professional dentist at least twice per year or every six months.  Depending on your dental health condition, your  dentist will inform you how frequently they want to see you for a regular check-up. If you have a damaged tooth or severe discomfort, it is critical to schedule a dental appointment immediately.

A routine dental examination can be completed in an hour long appointment. At this visit, your dentist and dental hygienist will assess your oral health and provide recommendations for any treatment or at-home hygiene that may be necessary . You should expect the following at your six-month appointment, although every dental office has its own processes to follow:

X-Rays To give the dentist time to evaluate your x-rays before examining your mouth, the dentist will take them at the beginning of your session.

Cleaning A dental cleaning has numerous advantages. Dental scalers and other tools used by the dentist will remove plaque and tartar from tooth surfaces as well as gum tissue. After that, they’ll use a paste to polish your teeth and floss between them.

Your dentist or hygienist may point out places on your teeth where you need to pay extra care when brushing and flossing. They can also provide you tips on how to properly brush and floss your teeth if you need it.

Detection of cavities After that, your dentist will check your teeth for any signs of decay, cracks, chips, or other damage that has to be fixed.

Current dental condition The state of fillings and other dental work is checked by a dentist during an examination because they do not endure forever. If a filling, crown, or bridge is no longer doing its job, the dentist will propose replacing it.

Gum health evaluation Gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease) and periodontitis will also be examined by your dentist. They’ll look for pockets under the gum line around each tooth where germs and plaque have pulled the gums away.

A periodontist is a professional who can treat the more advanced form of gum disease, called periodontitis, which could be prevented and reversed with good oral hygiene at home and regular dental cleanings.
