General Dentistry mainly focuses on preventing disease. Actually, about 65% of all dental procedures are either to diagnose or prevent dental illnesses. A general dentist will look specifically on how to improve your oral hygiene and stop any oral diseases from progressing if they are already present.
Your general dentist will help you prevent any oral disease by conducting regular cleanings, recommending preventive treatments or conduct restorative or cosmetic procedures. However, an advanced illness is detected, like periodontal disease or tooth decay, most general dentists will recommend you look at more specialized dentists that will be able to help with more advanced procedures such as root canals.
